  • Awesome folks very caring, love the horses and they really take care to be sure we are doing everything right and have the right information. Anyone giving a bad review should not come out to the ranch, please stay in your preppy village. haha - so if you want the real deal and want to learn and ride the right way to care for horses and have a great experience give them a call. Thanks Folks for the good times.
  • What an amazing experience! My girlfriend and I spent an afternoon at Flyspur ranch for her birthday and both Therese and Kevin were beyond flexible in providing us with a ride and time frame/price suitable to our mostly novice riding experience. After a quick and painless walk through of some basic riding fundamentals, we mounted up and Kevin led us on a gorgeous trail ride through the high desert hills and buttes surrounding the ranch. Beautiful mountains views. Even as novice riders, we felt as though we had autonomy with the horses on the trail, rather than simply being led nose to tail. Kevin selected just the right personalities to go with our riding status. Once the ride was over, there were pictures, treats for the horses, and we were given a sunny spot overlooking the area to eat our lunch. Perfect afternoon. We were so appreciative of the genuine love of riding and of the animals themselves that Kevin and Therese shared with us at this beautiful spot! We'll be back.
  • Took our three girls here for my daughter's birthday . They had a blast. One hour of learning and riding a horse. The owners seemed to be nice people. However after a couple of days all three of my daughters and my wife got head lice. The helmets we were given were infested. My wife called to inform FlySpur Ranch about the lice. Only to be hung up on by the owner. I wouldn't go to this place again if my life depended on it. Only because of the awful way the owner treated my wife and our family after we informed her of the issue. $115 horse ride for some head lice....don't forget your shower cap if you decide to go. Not only the 115 dollars for the ride but several hundred for treatment. Yes several hundred for a family of five. You are the owner and person responsible. We called to inform not lay blame. Its not personal...but you calling my wife psycho on the phone is. I never would have submitted a Google review had you been concerned and sympathetic to my issue. However you were defensive and obtuse. Even resorting to name calling. Grow up and take responsibility for your business shortcomings. So to recap..if you like to spend lots of money and be treated awful by the owners of this business when you voice a concern. Go for it! However if for your hard earned dollar you expect some common decency....go try somewhere else. These people don't don't believe in customer service.
  • I just read the review from Rick who wanted to give Flyspur Ranch a "Minus Star" rating. I have owned horses for over 20 years and I know that, being herd animals, they can behave very differently depending on many variables and, therefore, are sometimes unpredictable. His comment about his mare being physically and EMOTIONALLY injured raised a red flag for me since it directly contradicts my experience there. I have boarded my horse at Flyspur for over a year and I can honestly say that they run one of the best stables I have ever been around. He is well cared for, his weight is perfect, he gets plenty of exercise, and other long-term boarders have expressed the same thing for their horses. I have no doubt that Rick did not have a good experience, but I would be careful about placing blame on the owners from such a short stay. It just doesn't measure up against their longer-term record...
  • I LOVE Flyspur Ranch! It's such a magical place. I am an equishare member and love being able to ride and play at the ranch. I've been teaching my 4 year old daughter to ride. It is such a blessing to have this ranch and program available to us. I love being able to pick whatever horse I want and pick what I want to do... ride at the ranch, give my daughter lessons, go trail riding with the other equishare members / boarders. I love that this program allows me to be with the horses when my schedule permits. FlySpur Ranch and Therese & Kevin Friedman are truly a gift to my family. We cherish the memories that we are making at this wonderful ranch! They also offer the best trail rides in Central Oregon and I highly recommend them to everyone I know!
