The grounds are beautiful. We got there a little early so were able to walk around and check out the bridges and creek. It was very relaxing. The staff was excellent. From booking to end of trail. Kids had a wonderful time and the horses were picked perfectly for the different experience of our entire group.

I had read a review that the ride was only an hour and not the advertised 90 minutes. We had the same thing happen. Left at Noon, got back around 1. The trail is the same going as it is coming back, with none of the advertised view that was the selling point for us. There is a lot of special property and we would go back if there was more to see.

Great Great Staff! They were real, very sweet and made the experience even more enjoyable. It was nice the young ladies brought there dogs (especially the Pit Bull and her/his owner). Perfect Ride, my friend was very nervous at first but later she was relaxed and loved it. Great garden setting for the wine and cheese plate :-)

Keep your staff that rode with us!

The scenery around the ranch and on the ride was beautiful. Didn't hurt that it was the time of year when everything was green and lush. The trail leads were very helpful along the ride also. They gave useful suggestions as far as handling the different terrains on the trail. I am an experienced rider myself but could appreciate how much the novice riders benefitted from their advice. Also, the grounds of the ranch itself were so calming. If I hear of anyone planning a wedding I will definitely suggest they look into the Ranch at Bandy Canyon as a possible venue. May even use this for a family reunion in the future.

The grounds are beautiful, what a nice place and the Guides couldn't have been nicer! Great day!

When making the reservations, it seemed very structured with lots of rules and not a lot of availability. Upon arrival at the Ranch, they were exremely welcoming. BIg difference in the booking experience and then upon arrival they could not have been nicer.
