This ranch abuses their horses, physically, and mentally. They have 109 horses, but keep them on tiny, dirt lots. They do not get the medical attention they need, and are nutritionally a mess. They are fed moldy bread, and have babies like factories. April, who is the lesson-giver, is cruel and very arrogant. She is extremely rude and really has no clue what she's talking about. They overwork their horses, and because of it, several have died. Sure, when you go there for a trail ride, you get to go faster than a walk, but please avoid buying or riding there -- these horses are bred like rabbits, fed like pigeons, and treated like filth. They don't get the hoof care, the medical attention, the diets, the love they need. They are pushy horses who have no ground manners. If you're looking for a quality ride, on quality horses, this is not where you want to get it from. I've been riding for over ten years, and trust me: these people have no clue what they are doing. Their horses hooves are in horrible condition, the foals are untouchable, the stallions always have mares in their paddocks, and horses who should not be worked because of physical condition are worked even harder. This place is HORRIBLE. They need to be closed down !!
