Spotted Horse Ranch

Experience the beauty of the great outdoors in Hocking Hills and the surrounding area. With nine state parks and nature preserves as well as multiple state and national forests in the area, outdoor opportunities are endless. One great way to enjoy the many outdoor activities available is by horseback riding with a tour at Spotted Horse Ranch.

Whether you’re a beginning rider or experienced, the wranglers at Spotted Horse Ranch welcome you to join them for a fun-filled ride. Before embarking on your adventure, wranglers give some brief instructions to ensure you feel comfortable and confident as a rider. Throughout your ride, you will receive hands-on experience and additional horse handling tips from your guide. Fun family memories will be made as you adventure along the trails that lead throughout the picturesque ranch.

If you really want to embrace your inner cowboy or cowgirl, embark on the cowboy cookout ride. After riding approximately two hours, you will stop for a meal cooked over an open fire, reminiscent of the real cowboy days. Of course, sitting around the campfire is the perfect setting for telling jokes, swapping tall tales, and meeting new friends. After a relaxing meal, you will remount your horse for another two hours of riding along trails, over rolling hills, and through scenic woods before returning to the ranch.

Whether you’re looking to try horseback riding for the first time on a one-hour ride or you’re after the full experience with the cowboy cookout ride, Spotted Horse Ranch offers fun for all ages!
