This site absolutely exceeded my expectations. I was looking for a quiet, peaceful location to unwind and release some work stress for a weekend and I got all that and more. The camp site itself was lovely with a great view of the valley and the mountains beyond. It was so quiet the entire time. I booked a one hour trail ride and my guide Sara made sure I had a great ride on Duchess. Everyone I met at the ranch was friendly and welcoming. I will definitely return again soon

Great experience! This is a working ranch with the campsites set into the surrounding hillside, giving you a beautiful view of the animals and mountains. (My pics from the weekend speak for themselves!) I stayed at site #4, which was still only a few minutes from the restrooms/shower despite being among the more private ones offered.

The entire staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the whole operation has a great story; the founder takes in horses (many of them truly beautiful retired racehorses/show horses) that would otherwise be put down and offers lessons and trail riding. I did a two-hour ride and it was such an incredible highlight.

Just one word of caution: the location is fairly remote and there's no cell service, so I would recommend arranging at least one ride when you book and/or pre-researching some hiking trails/activities in the area before you arrive. There are a ton of great things to do within ~45 minutes (I hiked Dripping Springs in Temecula on my way in, which was gorgeous)—just don't show up expecting that you'll be able to wing it on the activities front.

Overall, Saddle Up Ranch 100% exceeded my expectations—great people, stunning scenery, and beautiful horses. Thank you, TJ!
