We had a great ride. Very pleasant. We will be back.
Susie was a pleasure to ride with. She made us feel very comfortable riding for the first time. Truly a great experience, we will be bringing friends back. Thank you!
The staff made sure I was comfortable and even had boots for me to borrow. The Guide was very helpful in answering any questions I had throughout the ride. She took so many pictures so my experience would never be forgotten. I will definitely be back!
Our guide was kind and answered all our questions as we rode around. We appreciate friendly, generous people.
Really had a great time and couldn’t have asked for a better guide. It was one of the most relaxing and calming things I have done in a long while. I would recommend this place to anyone!
Our ride was great. Loved the private guided tour - well worth the extra money! My daughter and I had a great time.
Staff was super helpful, very friendly and we were taken on a beautiful ride! The horses were very well maintained and we were given the right horses for our abilities.
Susie was wonderful and friendly! The horses were well mannered and easy to ride. The trail ride itself was beautiful and relaxing and I can’t wait to do it again!
Susie Q has a very large stable of WELL CARED FOR and well mannered horses. The staff is extraordinarily gracious, and our guide Alex went above and beyond the call of duty to assure that my special needs grandson had the experience of a lifetime. Beautiful people, beautiful animals and a great trail ride, at a price that left me able to afford dinner afterwards!
Alex was great, very kind and knowledgeable! Thank you
Our guide was very knowledgeable about both the horses and the trail we were on. The horses were well behaved. We were a group of 5 all family some of us recapturing our youth, the youngest was a first time rider. The staff was friendly and professional. Thanks for a wonderful memory.
First time riding a horse! Can’t wait to go back!
I was on vacation from Maine and it was my very first time ever riding a horse and it was the best experience ever I hope I am able to come back to this ranch one day and ride again!
We had a great time. Our group was a mix of experienced and brand new riders.
My guide Diane was awesome
Didnt know if we were exp. We could of had a better experience. Like trotting or galloping. Would of like to have known that. Everything else was great..
The trails were long and beautiful. It wasn’t just flat and boring. Hailey told and showed us how close the fire got, which was very interesting. The horses were well loved and taken care of and we were allowed to feed and pet the horses before and after our ride. We will be back it was a great experience. Everyone was real nice
It was SO fun! Great guide :) Beautiful horse! So serene exploring the beautifully quiet nature reserve nearby via horseback, and really enjoyable petting the adorable animals at the petting zoo!
They were very friendly and welcoming. They made sure we had a great time!
Susie was very kind. The ride was great and my guide was awesome!
Horses were calm and gentle and guide was great. Exactly as advertised.
Wonderful staff, great, trustworthy and well kept horses! I have been riding for 17 years and had an amazing time! My friend who is a super beginner left feeling happy and confident. We both can't wait to come back! Thank you :)
Easy location, just off freeway a bit. Horses are nice and love the carrots. Susie pointed out the wildflowers and different plants along the trail, constantly looking back to check on the kids. Our kids are 10 yrs old. Susie had helmets ready and even a ramp to easily get on your horse. We had a great time. We will be visiting next time we go camping around Temecula.
It was wonderful everybody was nice and very professional I will be back
Susie was very patient with my granddaughter letting her help clean the hooves and brush the horse. Also very pleasant to talk with during the ride.
We had a wonderful time. The guide was friendly and trail was beautiful. Thank you
We had a great time going out for a ride a Susie Q Ranch! Great staff, beautiful scenery, and sweet animals.
We wanted to celebrate our granddaughter Kaitlyn's 7th birthday. We were trying to do something different for her. When she told us she wanted to go horseback riding! Well we kind of hesitated and said ok I will look into it. She is from Riverside and I wanted something close to us here in Lake Elsinore. Made the appointment with Susie Q Ranch. I'm glad we did. At first I was afraid, but as we rode it wasn't so bad. We all had a great time and it was relaxing. We had really nice girls to lead us. We appreciated that. It made our ride more enjoyable. I cant wait until our grandson Logan is old enough so we can do it again. Thanks everyone.
Very good experience and friendly service great horses
Location was beautiful and clean. Susie, Hailey, and Alex were all very helpful. Especially Hailey, our tour/ride guide, who was very professional, kind, informative, interesting, and helpful. All of the animals were beautiful and friendly. A beautiful border collie even greeted us with his frisbee as we were exiting our vehicle. The ride was scenic, comfortable, and safe. An outstanding experience in every aspect. Thank you.
Got enagged this weekend and susie made everything a memorable experience
