It's not trail riding, but so much better. You can actually have some fun herding cattle and working the horses. Higher weight limit than other Stables. Kid friendly and it was great for the family. Our youngest was 13. We would definitely do this again!

I am not having any horse riding experience and I must say, this was a super fun event. Stunning landscape, super friendly horses and very nice and professional guides. Great fun for beginners as well as for more experienced cowboys :-)

What an awesome experience! The staff at the ranch was super friendly and provided a very memorable experience! The cattle drive is not a trail ride...YOU are taught to control your horse and make it work for you. This is an active experience, not one...More
