Here are some personal stories and photos our guests have shared about their visit to Sandy Valley Ranch.
Emily and I were given the opportunity to ride some beautiful horses, pretend to aid in rounding up some impressively horned cattle (I say pretend, because both Emily and I admit we weren’t so much riding the horses as they were allowing us to pretend to do so), and just get away from the hubbub of Las Vegas where we had escaped to after the crazed energy of the Consumer Electronics Show. Emily also learned how to play pool for the first time, so the short stay was filled with firsts!
It was just an overnight stay, but it shall remain one of my fondest memories of the new year, thanks to the dynamic duo hosts, the wonderful animals on the ranch, and the arid beauty of the desert landscape.
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 are looking for a different type of Vegas vacation then check out Sandy Valley Ranch.

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.

Well, let me just say that myself and 3 friends had the best day today! We made reservations last week for a trail ride. The day came we drove out there (we are from Vegas) and it is beautiful. We were met with a big smile from Milo, what a nice guy. He and his Dad were our guides they were great. We got matched up with our horses a little spin around the ring and we were off. Beautiful ride great conversation a wonderful ride. Lunch was very good also. Thank you Milo and Sandy Valley ranch for an extraordinary experience. We will be telling our friends who want to ride and enjoy themselves where to go. I am sure you will see us again!

We would like to thank you and your staff for making our visit to your ranch an ever lasting one. We had such fun and cannot stop talking about how great you and your staff were to us. Tati, Robert and I are telling everyone about our wonderful day we all had with you. You were absolutely the most gracious host and we cannot thank you enough for all the good things you planned for us. I would say that we were all quite exhausted and when I came home, I went into the shower, washed my hair and went straight to bed with a wet head. I can only say that me myself will never forget the experience I had with you and your staff and we are looking forward to doing it again some time in January. Thank you again for all you did for us. We really appreciate it a great deal.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for our stay. We had a great time, although maybe just a little too hot for us. Unfortunately we are not treated to such nice weather back in the UK. Thanks also to the young lady that looked after us, apologies I forgot her name but she made us feel so welcome and we could not have asked for a nicer host. Food was also fabulous!! The wranglers were also really lovely and the horses too. So well behaved. Once again, thanks for adding such an experience to our holiday of a lifetime.

Thank you so much for organising our sand dune ride, it was amazing! We all loved it. Your ranch has been the highlight of my stay in Vegas. Big thanks to you and all your wonderful team.

My wife, daughter and I recently went on a “trail ride” at you ranch. I would just like to say our experience was fantastic. We are not experienced riders but your staff handled everything perfect. Our trail guide was Louis we is a great asset to you company. He was patient, helpful, and very professional. I will recommend your facility to anyone and everyone. We hope to return and do the cowboy for a day experience next. Again thank you for a great experience.

Thank you again for all your help planning the bachelor party. We had a BLAST! Can’t wait to come back. All the events were so much fun and the staff couldn’t have been nicer. And the food! I’m still thinking about those tacos! We loved the entire weekend!

Thanks very much to all the staff at Sandy Valley. My wife and I had a fantastic afternoon with Apache and Shanie (not forgetting AJ!!) riding through the desert. We were made very welcome from the moment Tony picked us up at the hotel for the short drive from the strip. All the staff are really friendly and the food was great. Thanks once again. We will never forget our time spent with you.
