Goodbye 2015 – Hello 2016!

Goodbye 2015 – Hello 2016!

2015 was an exciting year for Horseshoe Canyon Ranch.  We have had a marriage, travel, an engagement, a new Hoover baby and even a successful back surgery.  Not to mention, the joy of seeing returned guests and getting to know the new ones. It’s always bittersweet at the end of the season watching staff go … Read More

It’s time to plan our fall getaway.

It’s time to plan our fall getaway.

  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 … Read More

Winter Pasture

Winter Pasture

With our 2014 season coming to an end we have hauled all but a few horses to winter pasture for some well deserved r & r.  Shoes off and an abundance of green grass, what more could a horse ask for on their winter break?

Congratulations to our 2013 Graduates!

Congratulations to our 2013 Graduates!

When five of your staff members (one being your son) graduate on the same night it makes things a little tricky back at the ranch.  Especially when the rest of the staff wants to come and support everyone.  Thanks to Jennifer, Scott, Sara and Bryan for staying back and tending to the 50 guests that … Read More

Autumn in the Ozarks

Autumn in the Ozarks

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 … Read More

A Little Down Time for the Horseshoe Canyon Ranch Crew

A Little Down Time for the Horseshoe Canyon Ranch Crew

The 2011 season is over for the most part (there is still one more chance to book a ranch vacation this year – the week of Thanksgiving!) and we decided a staff trail ride on the Buffalo National River  would be fun.

Fall

Fall

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 … Read More
