  • 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!
  • Really can't say anything negative about this place. They let you stop here for free and see their tiny horses. Great place to bring the kids for about 15-20mins and let them enjoy and have fun.
