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.

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.

We found the ranch on one of our trips to Rideau Winery which is just across the street. Unbelievably cute, little horses (not ponies)! If you have a young child, this is a must. The Ranch can offer you the possibility of feeding the horses,...More

After reading reviews of the ranch I put this down as a "must do" on our California road trip and I am so glad I did. Our 19 month old son had a blast looking at the horses and seeing him babble to them as...More

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
