In California just 2 miles from the Nevada border and 45 minutes from Las Vegas, is the Sandy Valley Ranch.  We had a private 2 hour ride with just us and two guides. This is what separates them from the others. Most other places you are in a line nose to tail. Sandi and Rob were our guides for the day. They were great and made sure we were comfortable in riding before we headed out on the trail. The horses were very gentle and obedient. The ranch has many overnight accommodations from Teepees to covered wagons. It was just like being in the old west. If you're looking for a place to go horseback riding we highly recommend Sandy Valley Ranch! For more info check out Sandy Valley Ranch's website.
