Calling all young cowboys and cowgirls!
Prude Ranch wants to give everyone a chance to ride, even our younger cowboys and cowgirls. For aspiring riders younger than 5 years old, we offer buckaroos rides. Experienced wranglers choose a suitable horse and then lead your little one around. For safety reasons, we maintain control of the horse, but your little “buckaroo” gets to be a cowboy or cowgirl for a few laps around our corral.
Buckaroo rides are available by reservation only, and are only available when a wrangler has free time. Rides generally last 5-10 minutes per child. We do not charge for Buckaroo rides, but tipping a wrangler for their time is encouraged and is always greatly appreciated. Please contact the front office for ride availability.

Frequently Asked Questions
- +What should I wear?
Jeans and boots are ideal, but any pants and closed toe shoes are acceptable.
- +What are the trails like?
Our trails cover various terrains by going up and down hills, crossing creeks, and riding on flatland and through brushy ravines. Our trails can be rocky and we will likely encounter brush and wildlife, but our horses are well acclimated and very experienced.
- +Does the weather affect our ride?
We will ride under most conditions, less thunder and lightning. Light rain, wind, or cold temperatures wont deter a ride, so please dress accordingly.
- +Can I bring a camera or water bottle?
Certainly. We have saddlebags available for small items.
- +Can I show up to ride without a reservation?
Unfortunately, no. Trail rides are available through reservation only, as we need to know in advance how many horses will be required for the ride. Our horses live their daily lives on over 2,000 acres and are only brought up to the corrals when rides are scheduled.
- +My child is younger than 6. Can they ride on the horse with me?
For safety reasons, we do not allow more than one person on a horse at the time. We have buckaroo rides available for little ones.
- +Should I tip the wrangler?
Tips are always very much appreciated. Tips are a great way to let your wrangler know you had a great experience!
- +I don't see my question here. How can I contact you?
