Saddle Up Ranch is a horse rescue that is ever growing. We have over 180 trees on the property (mostly beautiful flowing California Pepper Trees) and have gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains and horse pastures.We offer horseback riding, goat yoga, and goat milking. You can also volunteer and help care for the animals while you are here by feeding, grooming or simply petting them. TJ, our owner, is working her way through the race track. Our campsites are managed by Tony. He works closely with guests to expand our campsites. TJ and many of the guides volunteer hard hours to rehabilitate the horse and give them a good home. You should see how the animals flock to TJ. The ranch also has goats, pigs, chickens, dogs and cats. You can support our mission of rescuing horses by booking one of our horseback riding or other services! Thank you for your support! Guests love staying here: "Second stay and looking forward to returning again! <3 We were the only campers during the weekend, it was so serene. It gets very cold at night but the star filled skies are breathtaking. This time during our stay we had 3 kitty visitors and 3 dogs that rolled up to our camp multiple times, it felt like they were checking up on us. It was so cute. The sweet Aussie poked his head in our tent to say "you good?" haha It was so cute and they were extremely friendly and social! The black kitten stayed at our camp all night and cuddled on our laps by the fire. It was such a lovely experience. TJ and her crew have done an amazing job with this place, I don't have enough words to explain. Just see for yourself! You'll love it!! Can't wait to visit again!"

Great experience.
This is a great and unique experience. It’s a bit more rustic than I expected but we loved our time here. The horses were awesome. Next time we will take a ride. I love the work they are doing there. Lots of doggies visited us. The other campers were very quiet and we didn’t near any cars driving by which is something that really annoys me. Highly recommend.

The people that works there are nice. Lots of animals! The campsite need a little work though. The tables were dirty. So dusty. The sign for the site was broken so we had to go back and forth but luckily there's TJ to show us the site. Portable potty was clean so it's good. My daughter and I enjoyed petting the animals so that's good.

We had a great time, got there right before sunset and the view was beautiful! They had a dog that came up and hung out with us for a bit by the fire, super sweet and friendly. There was only one other person camping so we had a lot of the space to our self. Although the camping space itself is pretty small, so if there had been someone camping at site 7 I don’t think we would have had enough room to be comfortable. Also in the morning there were a ton of of flies everywhere, we left soon after, but doesn’t seem like a camp site you’d want to hangout in during the day. Overall we had a really good experience though

Free range for animals, not campers
Regretfully, I have to agree with the reviewer who compared this camping experience to a homeless encampment. The farm was outstanding, the land was picturesque and had a lot of promise, but the camp sites were little larger than a parking space, had no separating features (like trees or bushes) and they were fully (over) booked. Thankfully, we had courteous neighbors who had booked multiple adjoining sites (for their party of two), otherwise our 4 person tents would have been close to touching. We reserved and paid for two nights, but only stayed one. Our neighbors also left a day early - despite paying for two sites/night. It would have been an entirely different experience if we had been spread out a bit more. Horseback riding was fine/fun, and as other reviewers have commented - TJ stole the show and made the trip worthwhile. It wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t great. Spreading out the campsites would have made all the difference.
