Horseback Riding

At Crystal Creek Equine Center we are proud to be offering guided horseback rides and riding lessons to our many activities at the ranch. We started our equine activities with our therapeutic riding program and a “horsemanship” segment of our nature day camps. We now have available a limited number of horses for guided rides around the ranch, and for private horsemanship lessons. In addition, you may also bring your own horses to ride when you stay at our RV area, campground, or in one of our “lodging adventures.” More details noted below.
