Since its inception, our ranch has been part of the Dude Ranch Foundation Horse Safety Program. This program is dedicated to ensuring member ranches remain responsible for giving guest riders an enjoyable horseback riding experience while displaying the highest degree of care.

What Type of Rides Can You Go On?

Your horseback riding experience starts before you even arrive at the dude ranch. Before your arrival, our knowledgeable staff will pair you with a horse based on the information you give us on your activity form. When you get here, you’ll be given a saddle and tack that’s yours for the duration of your vacation.

  • Monday morning orientation ride: All first-time guests will have an orientation before setting off on a scenic ride.
  • Advanced horseback ride: This is a combination of walking, trotting, and cantering. Please note that you must complete the advanced test to be considered an advanced rider.
  • Adult scenic ride: Offered daily, this outing takes you through stunning scenery on a trail of variable terrain.
  • Daily scenic ride: Go for a ride through pastures of wide open trails and on open hillsides.
  • Family horseback riding: This is an excellent option for those visiting with younger children, as the rides are often shorter than most other trail rides.
  • All-day ride: Go for a roughly six-hour ride, complete with a lunch provided in your saddle bag.

Other incredible horseback ride options include the Kids Program horseback rides and even horseback riding lessons.
