We visited the Rawhide Ranch for the first time and we had a great time! Between horseback riding, zip lining, hiking and exploring, and holding bonfires every night, we created many memories! Loved it!

I needed a fun place to take my grandaughters for a 2 day outing. They are 16,13,and10. I was a little worried at the fact of no T.V. but we had fun. They loved it and want to go back. I would like to go again when it is cooler so we can sit around the campfire. I have been telling everyone about it, no swimming, but Brown County Park is 10 minutes away and they have a pool we zip lined and went horseback riding, went to Nashville to eat and look around. This place is very affordable for a family.

Rebecca R,
Thank you for taking the time to spend with your grandchildren. A grandparent is a special person and the memories you created with your granddaughters will last a life time. I am also thankful that you chose the ranch to help create these memories.

My son and I had a great trail ride on July 16, 2014. It was a Beautiful day and Racheal was our guide. We also had the pleasure of Racheal's grandpa riding with us. The horses were very calm and cooperative. Racheal was a pleasure to converse with about horses and the surrounding area. As we were talking, Racheal also told us she served as a Marine for our country. We thanked her for her service. Her parents should be very proud! My son didn't want the ride to end. This was his first horseback riding experience.

I would recommend that you visit Rawhide Ranch! We will definitely go back to ride again and try the zip line course as we'll.

Adventurer46158,
We agree that Rachel is a great guide and love when her grandfather, Dean, gets to join in as well. There is something special about seeing the two of them out riding the trails together.

I am thankful that you chose Rawhide Ranch USA as the place to introduce your son to horseback riding. We know that we provide a safe, fun experience to first time riders, especially children. I hope you guys come back soon.

Had a great time here. Very pretty place and the staff were all very nice! If you have children who are interested in horses then this is a great place for them. It's all pretty rustic but that's what you should expect from a ranch style inn. Everybody in our family seemed to have a great time!

Mikeisi,
Thank you for taking the time to write the ranch a review. The staff of the ranch does it's best to treat every customer the way we want to be treated. You know, the old "golden rule". The goal is to make you feel like you are part of the ranch family, which every guest is. We know, that if it wasn't for the guests the ranch would not be here and for that, we are appreciative. I hope you guys will choose to come back soon.

We had a family reunion at the ranch this past weekend, and it turned out to be the perfect location for us! We had over 20 adults & 14 kids and all stayed in The Buck Inn. It was decorated so well and had 2 great living room areas that were perfect for just relaxing and hanging out. There are also 2 huge decks on both sides that we really enjoyed! One deck overlooks where the horses are so the kids loved looking over at them. The staff was very friendly and great with the kids. They let the kids walk and brush the horses! By the end of the weekend, most of the kids knew all the horses by name and each had their favorite! There are also 2 very friendly ranch cats and a ranch dog. All animals were so sweet to the kids and put up with being chased around! :) We took a lot of our own food but ate breakfast cooked by the Ranch on Saturday morning, and it was very yummy! The biscuits & Gravy was my favorite part! There is a huge fire pit area on the Ranch too so on Friday night we had a hot dog and smore roast around the fire! The Ranch is only a few minutes from Brown County State Park and the town of Nashville, Indiana so there are great activity options for those who want to browse shops in the town or go hiking, mountain biking or swimming at the State Park. Like I said, it was the perfect spot for our reunion and I imagine we'll be back for our next one!

Tarabell82,
We happen to agree with you that Rawhide Ranch USA is a great destination for large family reunions. One of the best compliments we receive is the ease the parents have in letting their kids run the ranch to chase the animals or just be kids. The addition of breakfast to the ranch has made it easier for families when packing and planning. Why not let the ranch take care of your breakfast? Just get up in the morning and head to the rooster.
I greatly appreciate the time you took in writing this review. We have always relied on the customer to help us spread the word. I hope you guys do come back for your next gathering.

Sincerely,
Derek W Clifford

My daughter and I came to Rawhide Ranch as a "girls getaway trip". I wanted to go somewhere "different" that we would build great memories together. From the management to the rooms, food, horses, along with the amazingly friendly and interactive staff for horseback riding and zip lines... we could not have asked for more! We will definitely be back and we have been telling EVERYONE about the ranch. We fell in love with the people, scenery, and animals!

Monica,
Thank you for choosing to bring your daughter to the ranch. One of the goals of the ranch is to help people make memories together and it would seem we accomplished this for the two of you. Please don't wait too long until your next mother/daughter trip. It won't be long until she is grown and too busy with her own life. I personally hope that you will make the ranch your annual trip and that it won't be too long until we see you guys again.

We so enjoyed the entire feel of the ranch, from the first trip up the winding drive to the horseback riding and Brouse House! Iris was a typical ranch dog and we loved the staff! The horses are great~
