    This wonderful place is located in between Solvang and Los Olivos in a beautiful area surrounded by oak trees. We had a little bit of a difficult time locating the visitors entrance due to the fact th...  more »

    I need to qualify and explain my title. I love animals and will go out of my way to see anything that is living, breathing, and/or swimming. I went to the Quicksliver ranch today and all I could think...  more »

    It was worth a quick stop. It wasn't super exciting or amazing. But, the miniature horses were adorable and we were glad we stopped.  more »

    Cute for small children. This is a private ranch that is open to the public so no tours. At 2pm on a weekday the staff was busy and the walk to see the horses was self guided. The foals were inquisitive and friendly and the kids were able to pet some of them.

    There isn't much to do here. Just pull up your car, park, and look at the mini horses. There is nobody there, so you really can't do anything besides look. It's nice these owners open their ranch to the public.

    I brought my 3yr old here to see the miniature ponies. The ponies are all fenced in and you really cant get to any to pet. I would have loved to have been able to pet and feed the ponies, even if I had to pay. They didnt have any staff on site. I did leave a $20 donation because it seemed like they need all the money they can get.

    Very cute with all the miniature horses. Even saw a couple of baby mini horses.

    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!
