We picked this ranch based largely on its TripAdvisor reviews, and everyone was right - it's a great place. The staff are amazing and seem to truly care about the experience you have. There are tons of activities, so even a non-rider will have fun. We decided to ride quite a bit, but we also went kayaking and did archery, which were both a blast. The horses are all very well behaved and clearly are treated well. There are beginner rides for those who haven't ridden as much, as well as intermediate and advanced rides. My daughter loved the advanced rides, where she was able to gallop along the trails and race against other horses in a meadow. Even though she is quite young, once the wranglers saw she could ride well, they treated her like any other good rider (i.e., they're not stuck to rigid rules). The food was great, the bartender was great, and we even made new friends with the other guests. I don't have one negative thing to say about this place. We are definitely coming back!
