Our hostess, Kathleen, was fabulous in selecting the horses for my family-- all three of us are at different levels-- and then taking us on a beautiful ride through the Kenner Ranch. She was knowledgeable about the area, thoughtful about our different riding abilities and overall, a great person to spend a morning with. If you want a fun and... More

Whether you are a total greenhorn with horses (like myself) or an accomplished trail rider, you will have a truly great time at Kenner Ranch. The owner, Kathleen Kenner, loves her job and it shows in the way she treats her horses and her customers. It is evident that the horses are well fed, exercised and cared for. She takes... More

What a perfect way to start our morning after camping near Julian. We were welcomed into the Kenner Ranch as if we were long time friends. My son had never been on a horse before and Kathleen Kenner was patient, knowledgable and wonderful company on the ride. The scenery along the trails was spectacular. The horses were very well taken... More

Spent the better part of the day with Kathleen Kenner on her horses and really had a wonderful time. We trailered the horses to an area about 20 min from her farm and then rode for hours in the woods out to beautiful meadows. Very relaxing and peaceful. Her horses are real horses that require skill and not just ones... More

Perfect choice! This was a wonderful location to ride among oaks and pastures with cows and a windmill. The owner, Kathryn, let us be involved as much or as little as we wanted and we learned about horse behavior and tack, as well as how to really ride instead of mounting a preprogrammed horse. We learned a few new things... More

Kathleen and family were the most welcoming people we have ever met. We spent 3 hours with the family enjoying their beautiful property and learning all about their family of horses. We had the best time riding and felt very safe with Kathleen. The trails were incredible and the horses were amazing. We would (and will) go back to the... More
