Had my first lesson about a week or so ago and absolutely loved it. If you want a wonderful experience with horses and great people, I highly suggest contacting Krissy. Looking forward to future lessons!

Absolutely wonderful place for riders of all ages and levels. The people are all very kind supportive and encouraging. I highly recommend to new and seasoned riders!

Runaway Ranch for us, is about family, friends, and enjoying horses as a community.

We have worked hard to develop proven training techniques to get you where you want to go. Our team meets weekly to discuss any challenges and lessons learned to work together to overcome our individual and group obstacles. Our goal is to continue to grow our program by listening to our client’s needs and overall experiences and use this to improve our curriculum. We are constantly improving our own knowledge through ongoing workshops, training publications, live seminars, teaching associations, and continuing education courses. We want to continue to deliver outstanding service to everyone while maintaining affordability. We love watching our students grow and are always setting the bar for having fun while learning and opening new opportunities. Give us a chance and see why we rank higher than any barn like us in our area.
