The fall foliage is on it’s way and the Ozark region is one of the best places to take in the magnificent color.  With the cooler temps and changing leaves autumn can be one of the best times to experience Horseshoe Canyon.  Horseback riding, cook-outs, riding the zip-line and rock climbing are an example of what you can do doing your stay.  Give Jaime a call and make your reservation. 1-800-480-9635

Peek color happens near the end of Oct - the 1st part of Nov.

We would like to thank all of our guests that came and shared the ranch with us for our 2014 summer season.  We had great summer meeting new families and reuniting with return guests.  We can hardly believe that summer is all ready over.  If you missed out, no worries, our fall  guest ranch season is fast approaching.  October is a wonderful time to come and enjoy the cooler temps and enjoy our autumn colors.  Give us a call today and book, it’s never to early!  800-480-9635

Fall colors

Grab your scarf, pull out the leaf rake and put some hot water on the stove for a cup of hot chocolate.  Fall has arrived.  It’s that wonderful time of year when the air becomes crisp, the sky has a different hue of blue and the leaves change into the most beautiful colors.   We were a little worried about the Ozark color because of the dry summer season but low and behold mother nature still gave us a work of art.  A canvas of reds, oranges and yellows scattered across the Horseshoe Canyon Ranch valley.


Oct. 15 – The color is starting to really show.


October 20 – More color.


October 20 – One of my favorite ways to look at the fall colors is horseback.


October 20 – Fall means breeding season for the goats. This is one of our bucks (male) enjoying the fall sun with a doe (female).


October 24 – more change in the color.


October 24 – The horses after a day of work.

One of our highlights of the year is when the LA Center for the Blind come to horseback ride & rock climb in the fall. Thanks Morgan for putting together this video of their experience.

Front gate at Horseshoe Canyon Ranch

Fall is one of our favorite seasons.  To us it means cooler weather, beautiful leaves, apple cider, pumpkins, and a time for family and friends to reunite.  What more could you ask for?

This year in the Dallas Morning News were listed as one of the 5 best places to see “autumn’s glory” in the U.S. . We were a little concerned with the extra hot weather and the lack of rain that all the leaves might just dry up, turn brown and fall off.  Fortunately this was not the case. Usually the best time to see the leaves at peak is the end of October. There is still some good color after that but then they start to fall off.
