Horseback Riding Testimonials

First, thanks for a first-rate, really delightful trail ride. I thoroughly enjoyed my 2-hour ride with Carl and his grandkids last Wednesday. It was sooo nice not to have to school a horse the whole ride; just settle in on my mare and follow Treasure in front of me. No loose saddles. No improper adjustment on stirrups. No riding on pavement. Just lots of relaxation. Your ranch is the third one I have ridden with, and I have to say you have the best horses, trails, wranglers, etc. I am already looking forward to becoming a repeat customer! - Bob
