Horseback riding in Texas doesn’t get much better than at Wildcatter Ranch & Resort. Located just 90 minutes from the Dallas/ Fort Worth Metroplex and near Possum Kingdom Lake, Wildcatter Ranch offers horseback riding as one of its main activities. There are plenty of places to go horseback riding in Texas, but three things really set us apart from all the other ranches; our wranglers, our horses, and our land.
Our well trained wranglers are friendly and courteous and more importantly they will make you comfortable riding your horse. Our pre-ride orientation will teach you the skills you'll need for a safe, fun ride. If you're an old hand at riding then we can review the skills that you already have.
Our Wildcatter Ranch “General Riding Policies” is a good place to start if you want to know more about horseback riding at Wildcatter Ranch. Click here to go to the policies page.
Private trail rides are a great way to make your horseback ride a more personal event. It’s a way for families, couples, or individuals, to enjoy the ranch guided by your very own wrangler! In addition, a child as young as 8 may take place in a private trail ride. The only thing required is that the child must be able to demonstrate his/her ability to safely and consistently control their horse.
These “private trail rides” are available on request (subject to wrangler availability) for an additional fee. Our Wildcatter Ranch “General Riding Policies” is a good place to start if you want to know more about horseback riding at Wildcatter Ranch. Click here to go to the policies page.
We require a signed waiver for all riders. We have those waivers in a downloadable format for you to read and sign prior to your ride should you wish.
All activities subject to safe and appropriate weather conditions.
