Discover a horseback riding adventure of a lifetime and saddle up with Rawah Ranch today!
Horseback riding is not just for experienced riders; we are happy to accommodate and teach the basics to all of our guests! Our wranglers are here to help you learn mounting, walking, stopping, turning, and backing up. And if you need extra training, you can ask our wranglers to help you work on something specific in the arena.
As a person who had never been on a horse before visiting the ranch, I can attest that the welcoming crew at Rawah helped me feel safe and comfortable every step of the way. Before the ride, they answered all my questions and even stopped on the trail to help me adjust my stirrups. You also ride the same horse throughout your stay, and as your trip continues, you will feel like you and your horse are old friends!
Please keep in mind that there is a 250lb rider weight limit and that skill and weight restrictions may apply for certain riding activities.
