The little ponies are very adorable and a must see for all ages. The sight of them will make anyone smile. The babies are very cute and like to romp. A very short distance from Solvang and worth the drive.

As you drive between Solvang to Los Olivos, Quicksilver Ranch is on the left(west) side half way between the two areas. It's free to go see the stables and Ranch. It has several large pastures where the miniatures horses live and play. If you're really lucky they'll have a few babies either in the stables or running around in the... More

I am so thankful we only live 40 minutes away from this wonderful Miniature Pony farm in Santa Ynez, California. These beautiful animals are fun to observe in their big pasture. They are playful to watch and friendly. You can take a FREE tour of their facilities Monday thru Saturday 10am-3pm. It really makes a worthwhile and fun outing and... More

What a fun stop for couples, kids and families. Driven by for years but never stopped. It is a great way to see how these little miracles live and you can tour the facility on a self guided tour and it's free! Great photo ops with the adorable ponies.

We loved seeing the mini horses at this place. Great stop along the way and you don't need to allow much time to enjoy the place.

We arrived after 3 p.m. on a weekday after it closed. Even though we missed the regular visiting hours, we still enjoyed our visit. My horse whispering husband got one of the little guys near the fence to come over and visit with us. It was so neat to see them enjoying the grass so much. Made our day to... More

So nice of Quicksilver to allow public access to their minis. Nice for a quick stop to see mini-horses hanging out and eating grass. Great they allow viewings for free. I'd love some kind of interaction to be offered for a fee.
