Everything was just wonderful. The owners and managers are very careful not to change feel and look of the Circle Z while still making renovations and improvements. The staff is friendly and very helpful, not that I needed to ask for anything, because they had thought of everything before I could ask for it. The food was delicious and plentiful....

Ranch vacations are an excellent deal, especially for serious riders, but even beginners of all ages will love the lessons, outstanding meals, comraderie, scenery, and extras like guided nature tours, astro nomy nights, campfire sing alongs and the pre dinner socials and happy hours.

This was my third visit to Circle Z...and it gets better every time! The people there (both staff & guests) treat everyone like family, so my husband & I felt comfortable right from the start. Outstanding food and lodging...and the riding is phenomenal! Every day there are different places & options...the best is the ride in the San Rafael Valley....

Last year at this time I wrote a review for the Circle Z. Our 2016 stay at the ranch was fantastic and I did not think it could be beat. We just returned from our 2017 trip to the ranch and it was even better than last year. I generally find that repeat vacations are never as good as the...

Time at the Circle Z is always special. The ranch is gorgeous, the food outstanding, and the warmth of the owners and staff inspiring. The rooms are immaculate and nicely decorated. The grounds are very peaceful and extremely well maintained. I highly recommend the Circle Z to anyone wanting a ranch experience.

When we checked out of Circle Z after 4 marvelous days, we booked for the same time next year. This was a VACATION! Not only do the guests enjoy the surroundings, but you should see the horses. They are in heaven....treated like royalty and thus they are "naturals" among the guests. My husband and I adored our horses, Crow and...

One of the best vacations EVER...a fantastic adventure! The Circle Z family provided THE best service and THE best food! My room was beautiful and CLEAN. The Ranch magnificent even in winter. The wranglers made sure I was safe while riding my terrific horse, but not smothered. They taught this cowgirl how to ride without fear. The rides were beautiful,...

We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We hands down have one of the best riding programs, and what you refer to as "nose to tail riding" is for safety purposes as well as the type of terrain. Yes there are limits with what we can do, but from beginners to advanced riders we always satisfy our guests with...

This was my 10th trip to the ranch and there seems to be something new to see every time. The horses, of course, were fabulous. George & Miko wouldn't have it any other way.

Being a beginner rider and pretty much riding on level ground on the East Coast, I was feeling a little apprehensive. Mountains, rocks, desert! I've been back three times since my first ride in 2016. The level of expertise, knowledge, and patience surpasses any other experiences I've had in the past. I was comfortable from the first moment I checked...
