The activity list is extensive at this guest ranch. Something for everyone for sure. It starts with a demonstration on how the ranch hands train the horses along with instructions on how to saddle, bridle, and ride a horse.
The ranch is located in upstate New York in the Adirondack Mountains along the Hudson River.
They offer miles and miles of trails to ride a horse. Wranglers will guide riders of all abilities on the trails and through the mountains. Also, guests can enjoy rodeos with all the bucking broncs and bull riding and other rodeo events.
There is a list of activities to participate in such as a cattle drive, hay rides, fishing, hiking, watching the stars, and I haven’t scratched the service here.
One feature that is really special is the Christmas Train during the holiday season. This magic time is based on the children’s book The Train to Christmas Town. Guests can ride the train to Christmas Town.
The website has a detailed page telling about the accommodations. It’s on their site under the Reservations tab.
