We arrived unscheduled as they were getting ready to go on a trail ride. We asked if we could join and they said yes! I have never rode before and the guides were very knowledgeable and taught me to ride in minutes. We paid for a 90 minute trail ride but actually got 2 hours. Great time and great staff!!!

I originally came upon this place through the Four Seasons but unfortunately the conceirge told me she couldn't book four months before and I would have to do a two weeks prior to my arrival. I was hesitant with that advice as we were traveling Christmas week. I contacted them directly and booked the same day I was told I... More

I had attempted to call and schedule 3 times. A woman finally calls back approximately a week after I had left the 3rd message and says that she kept losing my number. We scheduled a day and time for me to do the ride. When I got there, nobody was at the ranch. I called the ranch and got an... More

If you ever wanted to be a cowboy or cowgirl, this is the place to learn the ropes! I've ridden horses and worked with many animal trainers and behaviorists, but these were some of the best I've ever come across. Lori and her staff are top drawer professionals and really know their animals. I'd love to return and spend a... More

I definitely recommend this. We purchased from a Groupon so didn't know what to expect. It ended up being a ton of fun. The guide was friendly, and the views were great. This was also my family's first experience riding horses, so that was really cool for us. It was good for all ages too (ages 11-50 in our group).... More

My wife and I took the 1 1/2 hour trail ride with "Dennis" yesterday, at Cowboy College. Our horses (Tank & Xena) behaved beautifully, and the trail ride was one of our best! Weather was perfect and Dennis was full of knowledge of horses and the scenery along the ride. I would HIGHLY recommend Cowboy College to any level of... More

I have seen the dessert from 4X4s, ATVs, and even TomCars but it should not be missed on horseback. I was very apprehensive about riding a horse, since they don't have controls like a 4x4 or ATV. When we got there I realized how BIG the horses were. However, my concerns were unfounded. Other than being hard to get on... More

A friend of mine & I signed up through Groupon for a trail ride. We booked and ended up going with a family with 3 young boys. The wrangler was great - very informative. He explained that every animal on the ranch earned it's keep, When I saw the vietnamese potbellied pig - I had to ask. He explained that... More
