Rockin' R Ranch
Reviewed 15 February 2014

We've gone trail riding here twice. Each time our guide was very pleasant, nice to the horses and allowed us to do more than walk in a head-to-tail line. I hope more people go there and tip well as it doesn't seem as busy as it should be. They fit the horse to you (experience, size and request). I requested an arabian and got one each time. My fiancé, who is very tall, is not as skilled of a rider and they stuck him on a giant draft-cross. I also noticed they had nearly all of the same horses from one year to the next (this is not always the case at trail riding facilities). I highly recommend this for all-levels of riders.

My husband and I took my 8 year old grandson horseback riding. he had never been on a horse before (maybe a pony at 3) and this was an excellent experience for him. Our guide was patient and lead us on a 40 minutes ride thought the scenic property, answering my many question about the history of the area, the ranch and the horses. My grandson loved it. The guide was meticulous with us since we hadn't been on horses in over 20 years. The horses were heathly and patient as well. The Rocking R Ranch staff were knowable and recommended other things for us to do while we were in Bear Lake and invited us back. Overall it was wonderful. Good family fun, I look forward to going back soon.

We didn't stay there, we just went horseback riding. It was really cool. The leaders were knowlegable and capable. You can pay five dollars extra a person to go off trail, which might be a bit scary if you've never ridden before but as someone who likes to ride, it was a refreshing change from the docile everyone-stay-in-a-line type ride.
