Beautiful location, great trails with beautiful views

The staff were wonderful and the horses were very gentle and sweet

The ranch is a beautiful facility. The horses were well cared for and calm. The staff was good.

The trail was along a road and you go back on the same trail that you ride out on.

The staff was really nice. The trail ride was great. The horses are well cared for. Glad we booked an early morning ride when it was nice and cool. The Ranch is a really lovey oasis with beautiful grounds. Perfect place for a wedding. They even have a fancy carriage.

Jul 12, 2014 Gloria CA, United States

The well mannered horses, and how nice the staff was. The length of the ride was also good.

While we thoroughly enjoyed the ride, a more scenic route would have been nicer. The route stayed primarily next to the road. Overall, we had a nice time and would consider returning.

the ranch is beautiful.

Our ride was supposed to be 90 minutes but it was only an hour. Everyone was friendly but expected to gallop more.
