The team at Bandy Canyon were very professional and personable. The horses look like they were well taken care of. The entire experience was such a pleasure.

Incredibly attentive service. Well-cared for horses. Just a great organization.

This is pretty much the most basic, entry-level horse-riding one can do. For all of the people who'd like to try out a horseback ride and then enjoy the beautiful ranch for a picnic or the free petting zoo - or just the tranquility - this is your place. Others have stated that the horse trail runs parallel and near a low-trafficked country road. While this is true, for much of the ride you won't even remember that the road exists.
