A Ranch 394
For more than 30 years, equestrians have sought tranquility amid the forested trails and weathered barns of A Ranch 394. They find their solace atop the healthy, gentle horses and ponies that roam the ranch's meadows and slumber or play late-night poker in boarding stalls. Employees saddle up the steeds for rides or tours on horseback, and even host parties complete with jaunts atop ponies. The staffers also channel their passion for horse care into camps that cater to the budding equestrian or disenchanted carousel operator.
