My 11 year old granddaughter and I went on a Road Scholar Intergenerational Trip to this ranch. I can't say enough about how well the trip was organized by Road Scholar, and about how wonderful the people at this ranch are. The mountain setting (elev. about 4500 ft) is gorgeous. The trip was very well organized - sometimes we were...

My father has taken my 11 year old son to the Greenhorn Ranch twice now, once in December 2015 and once in June 2016. Each time my son comes back with fantastic stories of campfires, great food, horseback riding, frog racing, and fishing. The staff even remembered my son on this latest visit and were very excited to see him....

Having spent some time in San Francisco and Las Vegas, it was great to get to the ranch and unwind. Trish and Ralph were so welcoming, as were all the staff, they made sure we were well looked after. Riding the trails was amazing, my partner is a great horse rider but as for me i was a little nervous...

Our family and 4 kids (ages 6, 8, 10, and 13) have absolutely loved our past 3 trips to Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch! The kids all definitely want to go back again next summer (2016).

This was our 12th annual week at Greenhorn. We love being in the Sierra foothills for a week away from city life. The owners and staff are warm and welcoming; the wranglers are expert horse riders and teachers; the kitchen staff provide great food. It is a wonderful place to kick back and relax.

I've been to many ranches in the States and all over Europe and this was one of the best places ever! If you love horses, cowboys, rustic country athmosphere, singing and dancing, this is definitely The Place to go. I went with a friend and we chose to go outside of high season, for our main focus was on horseback...

After being at Greenhorn Ranch in 2013 we (2 adults, 1 teenager) needed to come back this year. For us it is an 11 hour flight from Germany, but it was worth every minute.

We went for our third year in a row a few weeks ago and have our next year's visit already scheduled. Such an amazing vacation!

The Good stuff: • All staff was super friendly and helpful. • This is a breath-taking setting with lots of room to roam. • A rustic adventure not a 5 star hotel. It’s a Dude Ranch; so don’t go in with expectations more than a step above camping. The ruggedness is part of the experience. • They take good care...
