  • Decided to go check out the Quicksilver Ranch, even though the reviews weren't all great, but our family really enjoyed seeing the mini horses. We were able to pet quite a few of the mini horses and i...  read more »
  • We had a group of 18 people that I had told good things about the Miniature Horse farm. We were on a time frame, but wanted to visit and see the horses, and maybe buy t-shirts. We waited until 10:15. ...  read more »
  • The horses are cute to watch. It appears as though the ranch is left open of the public to drive in, sit and watch the horses roam around the lot. You can take pictures and walk around the property bu...  read more »
  • I visited during a weekday so the place is probably better manned on the weekends when there are more visitors, but that's OK with me. Their flyer in the stable says to flag a worker down if you have questions or want to buy a postcard. It's very self guided at 11:30 on a weekday. This is NOT a major time killer. Just another pleasant roadside stop for people who like to see the lesser-seen animals. NOT a petting zoo. I enjoyed watching the miniature horses, lots of which are in green grassy areas (there was a very adorable young one when I visited), some in your typical oudoor dirt pens. Donation boxes here and there. Seems there's plenty of parking but that wasn't a problem during the week! So for what it is, and the fact that the information I found about it was spot on, 5 stars!
  • Awesome! Thanks for letting us enjoy this great blessing.
  • We always bring our visitors here to see the tiny horses!
  • Adorable (and cheap!). My wife and I stopped by here since we were visiting Solvang and it was a ton of fun. The miniature horses were beautiful and well-kept. There is no admission price. Basically, its only open from 10am to 3pm, and you simply pull in and see the horses. They are all fenced in - and there isn't really a plan. Just walk around and they'll come up to the fence for attention. They ask for donations, which go towards food and they have a small gift store in one of the stables. If you have a small kid and need a diversion - I highly recommend it.
  • Fun little pit stop. Donation box inside so it is pay what you want. Friendly horse people. Lots of mini-horses.
