FAQ

Do you cater to special dietary needs?

Yes, but please let us know about your dietary needs when you make your reservation.

 

Are we allowed to bring our own pets?

We have many horses and pets here at the ranch so we can’t allow you to bring yours.

 

Is smoking permitted?

Smoking is only allowed on the decks or porches of the cabins and the lodge.  No smoking is allowed in any of the buildings or around the animals.

 

Do you offer childcare?

We have some activities for children under 8 years old, but we are not staffed to provide babysitting services.

 

Are all of the rides nose-to-tail rides?

Our rides are all guided, but are not all nose-to-tail depending on the trail, terrain, and the size of the group.

 

Do we get to ride the same horse all week?

We match you with a horse during orientation based on your riding experience.  As long as it is a good match you will ride the same horse all week.  You will be responsible for getting your horse, grooming and saddling before each ride.  You can participate in as many of the horse chores and feeding as you would like.  We own all of the horses so you can ride the same horse year after year when you come back.

 

Is there a weight limit?

Yes, you must be less than 225 pounds to ride.

 

Is there a riding age limit?

Yes, we cater to all riding levels of experience but children must be 8 to participate in the horse activities.  Children 7 and under can ride in the arena led by a Ranch hand.

 

What should I bring?

We suggest that you bring several pairs of jeans and layered clothing, closed toed shoes – preferably riding boots (we won’t allow anyone to ride in shorts or sandals), personal hygiene items, bathing suit, sunscreen, and rain gear.

 

Are there any additional charges?

Taxes and 15% gratuity are added onto the base price.  There are also a couple of items that are an additional fee.  For example, you can choose to purchase anything from the general store, partake in beverages from the saloon, buy pictures that were taken during your vacation, have a private horse lesson or receive a professional massage.

 

What does the price include?

We operate on the All-American plan which includes your lodging, three meals a day plus some snacks, all of the ranch activities and evening entertainment.
