If you've never been to a rodeo, then you're missing out. This is the real deal with real cowboys and cowgirls! If you have been to a rodeo before, you won;t be disappointed as this is the real deal!

Wonderful horses and trip. Up to the top of the mountain gave us fantastic views of the valley. Very reasonable cost $35 for little over an hour ride. Friendly and helpful staff.

My wife and I really enjoyed our guided horseback ride. Our guide brought us up to an awesome overlook with a very scenic mountain view. We would definitely come back again. Great value at $35 per person for a little over an hour ride.
