Our team at Willow Ranch is dedicated to  providing our guests with incredible horses so that you will enjoy the most memorable trail rides of your life!

Industry standard horsemanship lessons teach people to " desensitize horses" so they obey and perform mechanically upon command. At Willow Ranch we "sensitize people" to connect with the counter intuitive mind of the horse so it can truly understand, appreciate and willingly work with us.
