Experience Cowboy Culture
Greenhorn Ranch is a working dude ranch in California’s Lost Sierra. Horseback riding takes center stage on the ranch. Our goal is to get Greenhorns in the saddle safely.
A home away from home, Greenhorn Ranch welcomes you as family. Wranglers and Greenhorns break bread at the same table. With 600+ acres and 60 head of horses, our home is just more fun than yours.
Cowboy living is alive and well. Our wranglers will teach you how to ride a horse with confidence or help you improve your riding skills. Come and cultivate your cowboy, California-style. Explore Greenhorn Ranch.
