So beautiful and the owners are so gracious to let the public wander about. Beautiful grounds and the miniature horses are so happy. One baby for this visit. So cute and lots of photos!

My daughter and I stopped here on our way into Solvang. They no longer have guided tours so you are on your own to walk the grounds. This is also a breeding and show facility. Some of them came close to the fence and we...More

My wife wanted to visit there during our Anniversary trip so we stopped by. We arrived and nobody was there to greet, give information or direction. So it was waste of time... The horses were hella cute though!

You are free to wander around the ranch to view the miniature horses in both open fields and pens. Unfortunately, you can't pat them. Horses are raised for sale, but no cost to ooh and aah over them.

We have been coming to Quicksilver for about 20 years! Thought now our children are grown, it was always a stop when visiting family in the area.

We visit Quicksiver Ranch every year. It's a tranquil place to sit and watch the ponies and babies frolic around the yard.

Great place for kids to see these unique and beautiful miniature horses. Beautiful setting in the Los Olivos/Santa Ynez area. Fun for the whole family.

I've been to the Quicksilver Ranch a couple of times now and it's, overall, interesting to see the miniature horses. The kids, especially like it. It's seems to be a relatively "self-guided" place. In fact, I don't think I've seen anyone working there the last...More

Stopped for a bit on our wine tasting drive. Spotless Ranch. The horses were fun to watch eating and playing in the pasture. Would love to have one to take home as a pet but husband says I have enough pets.

This is a ranch that has a long driveway that you drive down and park along the side or just inside the Ranch area. There is no one there and there's no payment required you just get out and look at the horses. We were lucky... More
