The venue is lovely and my horse was fun.

I thought the trail ride was 1:30 long followed by wine tasting but the ride was only one hour. I felt gypped.

The property is beautiful. The guides were engaging. I am not experienced with horses and I felt comfortable.

I would recommend trying to get there earlier. The drive was a bit further than anticipated. The early morning was great before it got warmer. We did have to book farther out than anticipated.

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.
