I went there many years ago with my mom and some relatives. It was fantastic (especially as a horse lover)! They had different trails for the different level of riding. There was the beginner trail group that only walked (I think). There was the second group that walked and trotted. And the advanced group (which I regularly went with) walked,...

We've been here several times over the years, first with our kids and now with our grandkids, and have always had a great time. There really is something for everyone; games, shows, water activities, playgrounds, and the little ones always raved on for months about "their" horses. Although the rooms are getting a bit dated, all of the staff, from...

We just got home from our stay at Rocking Horse Ranch for 4 nights. We had a blast! Have never been anywhere like it and we loved it and our daughter loved it! We traveled with our 2.5 year old and 10 month old. ALL the staff were nice and totally kid friendly. Everyone working there had a "can-do" attitude...

This is our 3rd trip, first time here in warm weather. We arrived Sun on a beautiful sunny day to find out there were no banana boats or water skiing that day even though I called the day before and was told there is no schedule we can go on standby. Sun everything closed at 6 besides the fun barn...

Spent the weekend with my 5th grader and her girl scout troop at RHR during a special Girl Scout weekend----what a fun place! I wasn't sure what to expect, but the resort is great. SO many things to do---not just horseback riding (which is a highlight). Pools, both indoor and outdoor, water slides, a lake with water sports and even...

Thank you for your wonderful comments! We are so happy you and your Girl Scout troop had so much fun! As for the room dampness, this was a huge mistake on our end! As part of our continuous upkeep and cleaning, we had the entire hotel steam cleaned the night before. Unfortunately we released the room to you too quickly...

Our family has gone to RHR twice now (and heading back in two weeks). We go with my family, my sister's family, and my parents. From the grandparents to the young kids, everyone has a BLAST. We have been there with kids as young as 2 and as old as 11. They love the new water park area, the riding,...

My wife, son, daughter- in- law and two granddaughters stayed at the Ranch Memorial Day weekend. We were celebrating my 70th birthday and my granddaughter's 6th. We stayed in two large well furnished and immaculately maintained rooms in the main lodge. The food was excellent, beautifully displayed and afforded choices to satisfy everyone. Further,the kitchen staff enthusiastically accommodated special dietary...

Animals, playground, paddle boats, small indoor water park which was perfect for our girls. Too many things to list. All the food was included in the price and it was good. Good...

My first time at RHR and I was not disappointed. Although it may have been a ranch years ago, it is now a resort. When I arrived Friday afternoon (3pm)I was pleasantly surprised to find the room large enough to house 2 queen size beds and a bunk bed (there were 3 of us in the room). Each of us...
