We require all riding guests to ensure that they have suitable boots to ride with at the ranch. You will require a smooth soled boot with a squared heel.

We encourage guests who wish to ride in a riding helmet to bring their own. We also would like to make our guests aware that as well as our ranch stock and horses, we also have dogs on the ranch.

2016 looks to be a very busy time on the ranch. We are excited to be able to offer a holiday you won’t forget. We only take 8-10 guests at a time on the ranch, so everyone feels a part of the family atmosphere and ranching lifestyle.

The timing of all rides may vary depending on weather conditions and temperatures and may depart either with an early morning start or later in the evening when the temperatures are cooler for the safety of our guests and horses. We also need to make our guests aware that it is the ranch owners’ decision when to make changes to a ride and if ground conditions are dangerous for the guests and horses, rides may be cancelled. As the Native American rides are pre-planned, no refund is given if ride is cancelled due to weather conditions, but we will try to arrange a replacement day ride within the week if possible.

We look forward to welcoming you to our ranch. As we say at the Lonesome Spur, "Don’t be a stranger!”
