Come RIDE and Learn with us!
"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and once it has done so, he/she will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.quot;
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We offer our Buck Brannaman style of horsemanship and cattle program for beginner to experienced riders. Shayne Jackson, the owner, has traveled and ridden with Buck in over 400 clinics over the last 20 years and continually brings his experience and knowledge back to the ranch. With an average of 15 guests per week, we can better know you, work with you individually, and tailor your learning experience each day to you. You’ll receive more one on one attention learning this style of horsemanship than at any other ranch.
During your stay, experience Buck Brannaman horsemanship taught clinic style daily, cattle working, cattle drives 2 - 3 days a week, and just heading out and exploring country. Bring your own horse or ride one of our well taught ranch horses using custom made saddles and tack (Kent Frecker Wade saddles and Jeremiah Watt Snaffle Bits with Mecate reins).
McGinnis Meadows Ranch is made up of people who love this way of life. You will find "more" here, from the care put into our lodging and meals, to the care of our horses, fine custom tack, and excellent facilities. "More" in the sincerity of our crew, and "more" in what you find in yourself, and what you can do.
You will leave here a better rider wanting "more of this little slice of heaven".
