We did the evening dinner ride and had an OK ride that I think could have been better if the group was smaller ( 18 horses in a line - made for a very dusty ride and no local information ) and if the dinner...More

This is our second visit to Ponderosa, and once again, everything went smoothly. The guide was excellent, and the price was reasonable. They were very accommodating of my 9-year kids, and we would definitely return to this place. Bring water!!

The weather was a little cool so a light sweatshirt was needed but the sun warmed us right up. The wrangler pointed out some wildlife and gave good insight into the ranch history. The one hour ride was perfect for us beginners.
