My horse-loving daughter and I (an inexperienced rider) were visiting Winchester and looking for a way to spend some special time together. We ended up spending a couple hours with Bill riding through the woods, up and down hills, along ridge lines and even through a creek! I was a little nervous, but Bill took good care of us, helped...

I took my girlfriend and her teenage daughters to ride at the Rocking S Ranch on a chilly November day. The four of us all have different levels of riding experience. We had a great time. The owner, Bill, is a superb guide, and the horses were perfect, not as lackluster as many trail horses but mellow enough for all... More

The owner, Bill was entertaining and made me feel at ease. It was my first time on a horse so needless to say, I was very nervous. I found Rocking S Ranch through Trip Advisor and was encouraged by all the great reviews so I decided to treat me and my best friend to some well needed adventure and Bill... More

Went for a late afternoon ride and could enjoy the beautiful colors of the fall. Was only my second time on a horse but felt completely safe thanks to Bill's good introduction and patience. Thanks Bill for this beautiful and fun adventure!

We found Rocking S Ranch through Trip Advisor and though we'd check it out since the reviews were good. Mr. Bill was very kind when we called and requested a trail ride that afternoon. My wife and I, along with our 2 teenagers (12 & 14) took the 1hr trail ride and were very pleased. Mr Bill has a great... More

I road with Bill for the first time last year and it was wonderful. So wonderful that the next time I visited virginia (about 3 weeks ago) me and my friend Nicole had no doubts we would be making a return visit. We paid a little more for the longer ride this time. Since we had a previous ride under... More

I was looking for a quick getaway w/ husband and found the perfect spot in Winchester Virginia. The highlight of out trip was the amazing trail rail at Rocking S Ranch. The owner makes the ride very exciting- we went up small hills and through shallow water. We saw 2 deer in different spots of the trail. I was able... More

We had the most fun! My husband surprised me with a post-nuptials trip to the ranch to go horseback riding, and since I've never been on a horse before, in my middle-age, you can understand I was a little nervous. We came down from the DC area, so my husband did a lot of research prior on horseback riding places... More

Bill is a perfect guide - knowledgeable, courteous, professional, considerate, and with many jokes to share to keep people entertained. The tour itself is so much fun and has many interesting landscape and scenery. I arrived with absolute no experience with horses and left a quite good rider (at least I feel like one). Highly recommend this activity, you won't... More
