Broken Bow Ranch leads trail-bound trotters on intimate, guided rides through 1,200 acres of unspoiled upland and bottomland pastures. Nestled on a working cattle ranch, the network of trails provides riders with ample opportunity to admire free-grazing animals and high-five natural surroundings. One-hour trail rides led by expert horsewoman Gay Leigh Bingham begin with basic horse-preparation training for riders who arrive early. Beginners learn how to outfit horses in proper riding attire before loping along scenic vistas and lassoing dummy targets to sharpen scarecrow-hunting abilities. Broken Bow’s trail rides lead small groups of up to nine people to guarantee individualized attention and safety. Riders are required to arrive in proper riding attire including long pants, durable athletic shoes or boots, and chaps crafted from sugar cubes to enable speedy equine bonding.
