Horses were well behaved, suitable for novice or experienced riders. The guides were friendly and good at their jobs, and it was nice ride. And, surprise, for $15 CAD they emailed us the 80 pictures they took.

We all had a fantastic time at The Ranch. There were 7 of us for my daughter birthday and everyone had a blast. The guides were awesome and the horses were real easy to ride and very gentle. We are already planing our next visit.

Knowledgeable staff, well maintained grounds and trails, very nice horses. The only thing that would make the trip better would be if the guests paid more attention to the instructions from the staff. Definitely a place to visit over and over.
