Trail Riding

We have 23 miles of trails on our property – and it’s always a great day for a trail ride at The BackStretch. You’re welcome to call ahead and reserve a horse to ride the trails yourself, or schedule a Guided Trail Ride with one of our seasoned BackStretch team members.


There’s no doubt about it – stallions are usually the most spirited type of horses. And for that reason, there are many ranches that won’t board or train stallions. At The BackStretch, we handle it on a case by case basis. Get in touch with us and let’s talk about the details!

Special Events

Yes! You can absolutely schedule your special event at The BackStretch! We’d love to celebrate with you and help make your day the best ever. Get in touch with us so that we can review the details. And in the meantime, check out our post about the perfect June wedding.

We invite you to be a part of our community of volunteers!
