What Our Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
I booked this for myself and other half and 2 kids (16 & 11yrs). We had 1 week in Vegas, then travelled to LA and then to San Fran and we all agreed that this was the best day of the whole holiday and would certainly go back, in fact none of us wanted to leave!!
SVR were fantastic, food was amazing, wranglers were also fantastic. They helped you if need be, made it fun and tailored it to what you wanted. Horses were well cared for and you could tell it was passionately run.
Shooting guns, cattle drives, penning and much more… finished the day with a camp fire and talking and eating smores under the stars!. We all felt very welcomed and we will return!
We were seeking a non-traditional holiday this summer but most of my family wanted to go to Las Vegas but we compromised by a few days in Sin City and an evening trail ride at Sandy Valley Ranch.
After two days of spending and losing money it wasn’t tough to get my group away from the slot machines and they welcomed the short ride through the desert on the way to the ranch. We’re from New York so it was awesome to see the Nevada desert up close.
Our ride was fabulous and the wranglers treated us city slickers with respect and the ranch owner Marilyn (who is delightful!) even joined us on the ride.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of LV for a while head out to Sandy Valley Ranch for a day of horse riding and cattle steering , from our group it was the third time we have booked onto the trip due to the hospitality and friendliness shown from the full team that make this a very enjoyable time.
After being picked up from our hotel the drive out was nice a peaceful taking in the sights and on arrival we where made very welcome. After a few pictures and instructions (no experience required) off we set with 4 chaperones ensuring the 6 of us got into no difficulty they where very attentive putting everyone at ease .
On our return to the ranch it was time for some cattle steering into the pens then some lunch followed by a campfire fire and the biggest marshmallows I have ever seen.Karay
Frequently Asked Questions
It's been at least 20 years since I've been on a horse and my friend has never ridden. Can we still participate in these activities?
Great question. 80% of our guests have never ridden before or haven’t ridden in 20 years (or so). Our horses are trained for riders just like you and your friend. But that doesn’t mean they are old and lazy. As you can see in the Meet Our Horses section, I’m mighty proud to say they are all fit and healthy. We will give you riding instructions before ride so you’ll know how to make them do what you want, whether it’s on the trail or chasin’ cattle around in the arenas.
What is the youngest age a child can be to ride your horses?
We ask that all guests be at least 11 years old. That’s because we really ride around here and you need to be big enough to have some “leg” on the horse.
What is the terrain like at Sandy Valley Ranch?
We are considered high desert, nestled in the Shadow of Clark Mountain. Our elevation is 2500 feet. With 197,000 acres the terrain can vary from nearby pine country at over 5000 feet to mystical sand dunes of a dry lake bed. Be sure and remember to ask Ted about the “Desert Gators”. Rumor has it they run wild in Sandy Valley.
