Riding Experience
Our tours are safe and enjoyable for beginners and experienced riders alike. As we are walking our horses through the mountain terrain for most of the tour we find that our guests are more focused on the untouched landscapes than the speed at which we ride.

Riding Terrain
The trails are animal trails, and although we do groom them slightly they are not wide open pathways. You may be riding through mud, water, branches across the trails etc. This tour is about getting to the best view points and not about speed or showmanship. For these reason we go at a walk only.

A typical day is approx. from 10 am - 4:30 pm with some stops for photos etc. and lunch on the trail. Our guides do customize the tour to suit the needs of the guests so it may be shorter or longer days depending on the group dynamics. That being said most often the days are a slightly longer at the request of the guests.

The ranch breeds Percheron, Belgium, drafts, American saddlebred, and thoroughbreds. The horses are hand raised and well socialized from the time of birth. They grow up and range at the wilderness ranch therefore they are accustomed to birds, squirrels, and larger wildlife on a daily basis. This environment has created calm and gentle horses that do not spook easily. We currently have 24 horses on the ranch.
