Our ranch offers spectacular scenery, experienced guides, and a riding experience you'll want to repeat. It's like a slice of good ol' fashioned western hospitality. Ride through our herd of cattle or explore all that nature has to offer on our ranch, from foxes and bald eagles to wild turkeys and herds of deer.

The Wagon Wheel Ranch is family owned and operated, which is why we have placed it into a Conservation Easement guaranteeing there will never be any houses built or other development taking place on the property.


We ride 7 days a week, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

We've been taking our daughter here for riding lessons for a while now. Sam runs a great operation. She has excellent people skills, she has clear expectations for the students - and the parents..;) She has excellent help for days when she's not there. We highly recommend her ranch. The setting is beautiful. We have yet to take a trail... More

Sam and Grace did an excellent job in taking our group through their beautiful ranch! My wife and I decided to celebrate our anniversary riding and we picked the perfect place. Sam made us feel at home while we waited. She answered all of our questions and paired us with horses that matched our personalities. The ride was fun and... More

Booked a horseback riding experience here and was so thrilled with the whole thing from start to finish! From the entrance and the drive up (beautiful countryside) to the entrance to the ranch (driving through cattle graving on either side of the driveway) the whole experience was incredible. Sam the owner was a real character and made the ride that... More

We were invited to a birthday party for our daughter's friend. It was great fun for the kids. There were two horses which took the children for rides around the ring. They played games (stick horse race, potato sack race, duck duck goose) and enjoyed watching the horses graze in the pasture. There was a small space inside for food/cake... More

This is a great place to go for a trail ride thorough the Virginia countryside. The horses are well kept and are conditioned to people riding them. Sam will take good care of everything to make you comfortable on a horse. I highly recommend you visit.

Albeit our 3rd horseback riding experience, I have to say this is the best ranch ever. Sam, the owner was very accommodating and friendly whenever I called. The ranch spreads out over 250 acres and the grounds are beautiful. Upon arrival, we were met by cattle grazing on the grounds. The long scenic road to where the horses are kept... More

Do you like to go horse back riding? Trail riding on the open range? Ride trails through the woods, or along the river? This is the place! Saddle up pardner! Sam or one of her ranch hands will introduce you to her barn boys Jack, Slim, Roney, Nugget, or many others who will give you the pleasure of the old... More
