Join Rainbow Ranch on a horseback ride through the beautiful countryside of western Michigan.

Ride horseback through several miles of trails with scenic views of our third generation family farm, including agricultural fields, rolling hills, deep ravines, river bottom, and thick swamp.

The 1-hour ride is our most popular trip among guests. We are often running promotions or discounts, so be sure to check our Facebook page! When you book the general horseback ride, your group MAY be combined with other small groups to form a larger one. During the busy season, the average combined group size for the general horseback rides is 8-12 people.

  • Chevron down What To Expect
  • Beginners are welcome! Rainbow Ranch horses are very gentle and our wranglers are focused on the safety of your group. We select the right horse for you based on your horseback riding experience. We have many horses available for first-time riders, so come out and learn with us.

    For more experienced riders, there may be opportunities to trot or canter, but these are based on the ability of the least experienced rider in the group. No matter how we’re riding, we all get to enjoy the beautiful New Era, Michigan landscape with its rolling hills, shaded trails, and local wildlife, like whitetail deer.

    Gratuity for your wrangler(s) is not included. It is not required, however, our wranglers work very hard to make your horseback riding experience safe and enjoyable. Please consider letting them know that you appreciate it!
