Meet the Horses
CHECK OUT THE HORSE YOU CAN RIDE AT BUMBLE BEE RANCH!
If you would like to learn more about your favorite horses, click the meet the horses button. The horse's skill levels are listed, starting with the easiest riding horses to the horses that require the rider to have some prior riding experience. Keep in mind you can request a horse when you go horseback riding, but it is ultimately the Wrangler's decision on which horse you should ride. Decisions are based on age, weight, experience level and personality.
All of our horseback rides and cattle drives are private. We do ride to your skill level, but we decide what that is. A lot of people think they are better than they actually are. We also have to ride to the lowest skill level in the group. All riders under the age of 18 must wear a riding helmet. Safety is our number one priority.
Skill level key: Beginner: These horses are perfect for someone that has ridden less than five times, is a little nervous or has had a bad riding experience in the past. These horses are usually so slow they go backwards. It takes a lot to get them going past a walk.
Beginner to Intermediate: These horses are good for those people that have ridden ten times or less. The horses can be on auto pilot or you can switch to manual controls. With a little encouragement they will trot.
Beginner to Experienced: These horses are good for those people that have ridden ten times or more. The horses can be on auto pilot or you can switch to manual controls. When on manual controls these horses require more experience to get them to do what you want, but if you know what you are doing this is not a problem.
Intermediate to Experience: These horses are good for those people that have ridden more than fifteen times. This doesn't include pony or merry-go-round rides. These horses have manual controls only and require the rider to be confident in their seat. They are not bad horses, but may scare beginner riders.
Experienced Only: These horses are good for those people that have ridden more than fifteen times and know how to ride a horse properly. They are a little more sensitive than the other horses and will move when asked. Young children and heavy handed people cannot ride these horses.
