This was our second trip to the ranch. This time our friend was with us. Although not use to riding, she had a great time as we did too. Crazy Alex and his trail guides, Beautiful well trained horses and the ranch manager, Joyce, made for a great day!

Had a half day trip, Joyce and the guides make you feel like family, interesting ride through the local area with fun and knowledgeable guides. Absolutely brilliant way to explore the area. Would highly recommend to all regardless of riding ability. The guides (Crazy Alex and Loco Pedro) were extremely funny and lighthearted making everyone in the group feel relaxed... More

Kind and helpful staff (Crazy Alex and a man I forgot the name of) as well that gave advice when needed but otherwise let me mind my own business and enjoy the sceenery. Good local food at the lunch break. I really recommend this... More

We had only been horseback riding once before and it was 2 years prior- the staff were entertaining, friendly and extremely helpful- we felt comfortable on our horses in no time! We... More
