Is your riding program flexible for both beginner and experienced riders?

Many of our guests experience their first horseback ride with us. We have horses that are appropriate for first time and inexperienced riders. Our riding program is designed to help people to feel comfortable, learn at their own pace and most importantly – ride safely. 


We have a horse for every level of riding including experienced riders. In fact, many of our guests own their own horses and ride competitively.  The variety of our riding program is designed to meet the expectations of every riding level. Our All Day Ride, Half Day Ride and Fast Rides (with loping/cantering) are popular with our many accomplished riders. 

What temperatures should I expect?

Mountain Wilderness temperatures can vary by as much as 10-20 degrees between daily highs and lows during the summer.  Spring & Fall are generally warm during the day and cooler at night;  it’s best to dress in layers to adjust for temperature fluctuations. 


Our summer season average between 80-90 degrees, with the nights refreshing but not cold.  We may have an occasional day in the 3 digits, but it always cools off at night.  Every afternoon a cool breeze comes up from the creek to cool the evenings.  Bring mosquito repellent for the summer evenings. 


Check weather forecasts and seasonal averages ahead of your visit.

I am single or a single parent. Is the ranch a good place for me?

Many of our guests travel solo or as a single parent. They find that the riding, activities, mealtimes and culture of the ranch create great opportunities to make new friends, be included in the group and feel quite comfortable. The ranch has a very safe, welcoming atmosphere for solo travelers and single parents to make you feel right at home. 

I have physical limitations, what riding am I able to do?

Only you and your doctor know your capabilities and limitations. We will rely on the health information you provide to us, so please consult your physician ahead of your visit and contact us if you have any further questions. 


May I ride on my own without a guide?

For your safety and riding enjoyment, all of our riding is guided. Our wranglers know the ranch and the Trinity Alps Wilderness trail systems, which is mountain riding on narrow trails.
