Horse activities at Rawhide Ranch
Trail Rides:Open year-round! Everyday!
Rawhide Ranch offers guided trail rides through our 54 acres of wooded land (weather permitting). Though our trails do not enter the park, our property is adjacent and mirrors the terrain. These rides are not just for our guests, we are open to the general public and we do provide the horses.
Trail rides are offered daily beginning at 10 a.m. with the last ride departing at 4 p.m. The horses depart from the barn every hour. We attempt to keep this schedule but we are at the mercy of those with reservations arriving on time. A reservation is the only way to guarantee a trail ride but we welcome all walk-ins. If you are looking at a ride through the week, at least a two hour notice is needed.

Horseback riding reservations must be called in and secured with a credit card. That card will not be charged unless the reservation is a no show or calls within two hours of ride time and making a change. The full amount of the ride will be charged in that situation. We accept all forms of payment once you have arrived. Once you arrive, you are welcome to pay in cash, check or credit.
You have up to two hours before your scheduled ride to cancel or change your reservation in any way without being charged. If it is within the two hours, the card you used for the deposit will be charged up to the full amount of the ride
Guest Discount Policy
The ranch guest discount applies only to those who are physically staying the night on the ranch property. We are happy to offer this discount the full day you check in until the full day that you check out of ranch lodging. When weather turns sour and the ranch cancels activities, the guest discount will be extended to a future reservation when full payment of that activity is paid within guest discount parameters.
Pony Rides are a great way to get that little buckaroo in on the horseback riding experience. You will place your little one on the back of a horse and lead them around our round pen. The cost is $5 per ride for children 6 and younger.
It is never the size of a horse that matters, it is the heart. We do not have ponies on the property, so we use real horses. Pony rides are offered between our normally scheduled trail rides through the day as long as we have horses up and ready.
Overnight guest/public $5
Rawhide Ranch is certified to instruct Girl Scouts on the proper handling, grooming, tacking and riding to further them towards
their badges. The amount of time required will entirely depend on the troop size but a typical troop will be a two hour process; one hour spent in ground lessons followed by a 45 minute trail ride.
Badge work prices:
overnight guests $30
As a family, one of our able hands will gather you up and introduce you personally to one of our herd members. You will have the opportunity to groom, lead, pet, feed and completely interact with a horse. A pony ride is an excellent follow up to this event for the little ones and a trail ride for the older kids.
Family lesson prices:
$5 a child (minimum of $25)
