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
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
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?
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 … Read More

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
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 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
Horseback riding is probably the first thing that comes to your mind when you think, “dude ranch”. Saddling up and heading down the trail, listening to the horses feet hit the ground, can be very therapeutic. It’s good for the soul. Typical Monday Morning Trail Rides – “Get to know your horse.”
