R Wild Horse RanchAs an owner of R-Wild Horse Ranch you and your family have access to horse back riding all year long as a part of the annual owners association fees. As a part of ranch ownership, you will not only get to ride horses but own them as well. Not only own them, but all the tack, saddles and riding gear and even the hay. During stable hours and weather permitting, horses are saddled awaiting riders and the wranglers are at hand to match riding skills to the horses and adjust equipment as necessary.

4,000 Acres of riding trails are reserved for your enjoyment. There are trails for beginners, intermediates and advanced riders. Our trails provide hours & hours of riding enjoyment and access to areas of the ranch that will allow owners further enjoyment of the ranch. One of the favorite trails is the one to Beegum camp on Beegum Creek. Advanced riders with their own horses can explore the remaining 10,000 acres as well.

R Wild Horse RanchRiding lessons are provided if you are a beginner or if you just want to sharpen up your equestrian skills. Lessons are available for all levels or riders. Everyone who rides one of the ranch horses must qualify to the satisfaction of the wranglers before they are allowed to take non-guided trail rides. Trail cards are issued to owners so that they can safely use and enjoy this wonderful aspect of R-Ranch. This affords owners the freedom to ride where they like during stable hours.

The ranch also offers riding events and competitions including Dinner rides, Group trail rides and Overnight rides. A popular ride is the Overnight ride and campout to Beegum Creek Camp. Depart the Stable area mid-afternoon and ride a couple of hours to Beegum Creek Camp to enjoy a Barbecue dinner. Then spend a night under the stars after singing around the campfire only to wake up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee. After a country breakfast of griddle pancakes, link sausage and ranch eggs you return to the ranch via horseback to spend the rest of the day savoring the memories of the trip around one of the ranches swimming pools.

R Wild Horse RanchThe R-Wild Horse Ranch “Horsemen’s Association” is a group of owners that share not only ownership but a love of horses and the joys that they can bring. Amongst these owners are riders of all levels of experience that participate in activities that are organized and sponsored by the group. Some of these include specialty rides such as Poker, Scavenger & Dinner Rides, and an occasional off-ranch ride to add more diversity to the equestrian activities. The Horsemen’s Association holds an Annual Awards Banquet at the end of each season where riders in each of several categories and age groups are recognized for their achievements, riding in competition and participation with awards at the Horseman’s Association Dinner. It’s a special moment that caps off the end of one year and makes all riders and their families look forward to the start of the next.

Aside from the creeks on the ranch, five major fishing lakes are within the 50 Mile Golden Circle of Recreation (more information on the “Nearby” page) along with several fish rivers. This part of California has always been regarded as one of the finest fishing areas in the western United States.

For most its a matter of owning their own property or having a friend that has some land that is willing to let them do it. For the owners of R-Wild Horse Ranch it’s a matter of driving to the adjacent areas designated for the various ATV’s.

Days can be spent driving on all types of roads enjoying the freedom and relaxation that comes from participating in your favorite activity and experiencing some of the benefits of owning your own ranch.
  • Dirt Bikes – One of the best ways to enjoy the backroads, dirt bikes give the rider a level of satisfaction experienced by few who love the feel of cruising along a dirt trail.
