We visited Holly and her horses on the 20th of August. We booked the half a day ride and we loved it! Since we own horses back home I'm usually not a fan of ranches who do trails with tourists but the website of the Sage Meadow Ranch had me convinced I should give this one a try. I'm very... More

I went on a three hour trail ride with Holly and it was seriously the best trail ride I have ever been on! Sage Meadow Ranch is absolutely beautiful; the stable area is lovely and the horses all look happy and healthy. The trail included flat prairie area, up and down hills, through the trees and over some rocky terrain.... More

Unfortunately, due to slight altitude sickness (flew in from Ohio), our son didn't feel up to going. Thankfully, a few of the younger ranch hands offered to hang out and show him how to lasso while keeping in contact with... More

Extremely well cared for ranch and horses. Holly and Dave are caring owners who really offer a riding experience, not just a few laps around the yard. Educational ride and a gorgeous trail

We obviously chose Sage Meadow and it was the best choice we made! Holly was so friendly and helpful. I have some riding experience but my boyfriend did not. She... More

Call and schedule a ride with Holly. First thing to notice is that this is a first class operation. It's not a volume tourist destination,and it's a place for personable personal service. Holly is first class, safe and caring for her horses. We've done vacation rides and found ourselves more than once riding around old ponies in someone's back yard.... More

We did the three hour ride and were the first ones out this year. It was an amazing experience! Holly and Dave were great with instructing us and telling us how to improve our riding.
