What we are about..
What we are about..
Philosopy is to give riders the best and safest experience of riding. We are happy to take good time to show you how to "ride" and learn about your horse. We do not do typical nose-to-tail, so riders need to be able to handle their horse by them self. And yes, ALL rides are in private groups.
We believe that all horses can have a job! We rescue and retrain at Willow Creek Ranch under the operation The Cowboy Way Equine Rescue & Rehabilitation (501c3). The riding operation, Clinics, Riding Lessons & Mental Health Program is the the way to finance the program for re-training and re-establishing horses. And we also have a gift shop specifically to support the rehabilitation/retraining of the horses that still not work as trail horses or have been re-homed. For all that stay at the ranch, you will have the opportunity to join in the rehabilitation/retraining
Your Booking Expert
“Howdy, Alyssa here. Here's a little about me and my back ground. Grew up in and around the outskirts of San Antonio, Rio Medina area. Started riding at age 6, with a little paint pony. Was hooked then and there, thanks to my grandpa. Rode and Rodeo'd through high school and college. And have continued through with the love of horses with my children.”
We're Cowboys, which also means we do not own anything but horses and saddles, so we bring the horses to all the different locations we ride at.
Horsemanship and ridinglessons for overninght guests will be at the 40ac Willow Creek Ranch where we and the horses lives
Please be advised, that if you do not have booking made a day ahead, depending on if the horses are in the pasture or in the stalls, it will take us approximately 2-4h to prepare suitable horses for you.
