We have around 20 horses on the ranch year round, all trained and experienced to carry you safely along any of our trails. Our horses, all geldings, are mostly American Quarter Horses and we also have some Paints, Appaloosas, Morgans and of course Billy, our Belgian draft/Appy cross. You can meet them all here, and see more photographs of them all in our photo gallery. All are strong and sure footed, easily able to cope with the sometimes arduous terrain as we climb mountain trails to elevations of 1200m.
All of our horses live on the ranch year round and enjoy a natural lifestyle. Living as a herd, they are never stalled or stabled. From May to October, they are turned out on pasture during the night and brought into a smaller day pasture during the day, only to ensure that they don’t overeat which can lead to serious health issues. From November to April, they are free to roam the entire ranch, foraging for the last few blades of grass and enjoying a diet of grass hay, fed to them daily. Well loved and cared for, the well-being of our horses take priority over everything else at the ranch.
