We visited this ranch during our stay in Clearwater. As novice riders we were pleased that they were well prepared for us. Time was taken to ensure our equipment was correct and that we were comfortable on the horses. We were then taken on a ride over the ranch at a pace suitable to our ability. The horses were excellent... More

We were so happy that we made the choice to go to this ranch! The owners were super friendly, horses are very kind and well taken care of. They make a choice for quality over quantity what means that they try to set up a trail just for your group (as happened with us.) and otherwise they have a stop... More

I highly recommend the ranch. We had a great time doing the trail ride. The horses are perfect for beginners like us who never did a trail ride before! Also there is a stunning landscape around. You definitely should visit Sarah and Ed when you're around! Thank's for everything!

Best trail rides in the area, the horses are really well behaved, the scenery is amazing (hills, creeks, river, forest) and the people really kind. If you're young, old, a beginner, or an experienced rider, you'll find what you're looking for ! Loved the time I spent on the ranch, one of my best experiences ever and hoping to come... More

My husband and I were there August 2015. We went on the 3 our river ride. I used to ride a lot, my husband not so much. Our experience, thanks to Sarah Shook was great. We had a wonderful ride, not too hard, not boring, through their ranch and along the river where we had lunch on their private beach,... More

We are not horse lovers but fancied doing the trail. We are so glad we did even though we have never ridden horses before. Sarah made us most welcome. She provided helmets and cowboy boots, which caused some amusement. We followed a trail around Sarah's ranch including stopping for lunch by the river. The horses seemed very used to walking...

A truly priviledged moment with beautiful and very diversified sceneries (and it was only the 2 hours ride!) on splendid and gentle horses (Tilly and Star), with whom we get attached as soon as we met them! We were guided by the very sweet Sarah who gave us the perfect amount of help, information and kindness to enjoy the place... More

A great activity for our group of two adults, an 11-year-old and a 9-year-old. We did a two-hour ride and were impressed with the variety of scenery on the ranch. Well adapted to our abilities as riders and lots of good information about the area. The horses were calm and well behaved. The iced tea and cookies at the end... More
