  • I've been to many different trail riding places across the country, and I've seen some pretty terrible ones. However, Marshall Creek was amazing! Their horses were in excellent shape and well muscled (not underweight, covered in mud, and packed in a corrals with dozens of other horses) and provided individual paddocks. Their coats and hooves showed they were well fed and groomed. As it was the off season, there were only 3 riders in the group plus our guide, Katie. She was awesome telling us stories of passed rides, the history behind some of her favorite horses, and easily navigating us around. My favorite part about Marshall Creek ranch was the options provided. There are beginner, intermediate, and advanced trail riding options. They will not allow first time riders on the advanced ride until they complete the intermediate, and they know you can handle a horse. As a trained rider in my youth, having the option to not just walk in a straight line the whole time but trot, cross creeks, and climb hills was wonderful!! It was well worth the money for an hour and a half spent on a horse! I can't say enough good things and will definitely be coming back! Thank you Katie for an amazing and relaxing experience!!!
  • My friend and I recently visited Marshall Creek Ranch as a gift for my birthday and I was excited by all the great reviews. The check-in process was simple and only included signing off on waivers and paying for the ride. I was a little taken aback by the lack of adults managing the place and I don't know that I saw anyone over the age of 20 who worked there. The process of getting our horses and starting the ride was not very smooth. There was a birthday party of young girls that seemed to be throwing off the staff and I was unimpressed with the way horses were randomly selected for us instead of having the opportunity to choose one ourselves. I personally prefer to bond with the horse before the ride starts, but they were running behind and everything about the preparation felt rushed. Once we finally got settled, we left with our group of two other riders and a guide. Unfortunately I could barely hear anything the guide was talking about as I was in the back of the line and it was hard to understand her questions or instructions. There was a second guide behind me that I didn't even know was there until a quarter way through because she was so shy and quiet. Overall the ride itself was nice, but be warned that if you choose to go on an intermediate level ride and you've only been on a horse once or twice in your life, there is a lot of trotting involved. You are also at the mercy of what others in your group want to do and if you're with strangers it's a bit awkward. At the end of the ride the staff are nice enough to take photos with your camera, so that is a bonus if your horse is cooperative. After that point you're abruptly taken off the horse and the ride is over. I don't know that I would choose this place again. There was a lack of engagement and experience which I believe had a lot to do with the age of the staff. It almost felt like they were simply volunteer workers doing community service for school. Although the horses seemed healthy, they didn't seem all that happy. One of the people in my group had an issue with her horse getting unruly during the ride and it also didn't want to stay still for the photos at the end. In terms of my horse, he was much harder to handle than other horses I've ridden and I felt that he was a little too big for me; based on the amount of soreness I've had since the ride, I was right. Places I've gone in the past (outside of Dallas) have asked for height and weight prior to the ride to ensure that you are provided a selection of horses that fit you best, and honestly that seems to be a safer and accommodating option that I will be looking for in the next place I choose to go riding in the Dallas area.
  • I'm a junior wrangler and love being able to work out there it's so much fun I could not think of any other way to to spend my weekends love this place❤️💖
  • Marshall Creek is the greatest camp ever! My granddaughter goes there every summer and fall and absolutely loves it. The horses are beautiful and the wranglers are very nice. The trail rides are also fabulous!!! 10/10 rating
  • We have been absolutely thrilled with the summer riding camp. My daughter came home beaming and can't wait to go back the next day and has already requested camp for next year. I love the positive and helpful attitudes that everyone has!
