Trip: Animal Feeding Experience

So much fun! Our kids loved this - particularly getting to hold 1 day old kittens! Definitely worth doing.

This place is amazing. We (a family of four with a 9 year old girl and 7 year old boy) had a wonderful time here. Tim, Michelle and the entire crew are fabulous. the grounds and surrounding scenery are truly spectacular. We stayed in one of the glamping tents, which were very spacious. This place is also just a short drive from the east entrance of Pinnacles National Park, which is very helpful since there is limited parking in the park and the proximity allows us to get to the park without worrying about parking. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a true getaway. Tons of fun activities at the Ranch. Thank you, Tim, Michelle and crew!

What a fun horseback riding experience we had! My 8 years old son who was not sure if he was brave enough to ride a horse had so much fun, and he kept asking if he could do this again several times after. We all enjoyed learning how to take care of the horses as well.

My wife, son and I had one of the best weekends in a long while at Bar SZ Ranch! We were able to ride horses, feed and pet an amazing assortment of farm animals and relax in an incredibly beautiful place. Out hosts were all down to earth, truly kind and thoughtful people who you just want to spend more time with. We were hoping to find a place for a repeat visit and this is definitely it!

Michelle surprised us by leading us on a trail ride by ourselves rather than within a large group we were signed up with. A very scenic ride and Michelle was the kindest and most accommodating host we have encountered in our many travels!

We had a great visit, the cabin was well- appointed with everything we needed to cook, rest, and enjoy our stay. The kids had so much fun with the animals, and I felt very safe getting back in the saddle after many decades away!
