What You'll Get
Contrary to conventional wisdom, one can in fact look a gift horse in the mouth, now that the mouth no longer houses the retina-scorching nuclear reactor that powers the horse. Get an eyeful of equine incisors with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a one-hour trail ride at Wonder Valley Ranch Resort (up to a $40 value).
At Wonder Valley Ranch Resort, groups of wranglers trot along trails that wend their way through a 75-acre facility in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Riders ages 7 and older don boots that hide toenails painted with My Little Pony portraiture and follow equestrian experts who tailor tours for all skill levels. For a full hour, small or medium groups practice their posture in the saddle and feast their sun-swept eyes on the local flora and fauna. In the interest of all-terrain riding, riders should leave their skirts, dresses, and kilts at home in favor of jeans or other durable leg wear, preferably pants with hand-embroidered cowboy poetry.

The inspiration for our founder to create this business was in helping to foster an environment that could teach, mentor, and coach young children to help mold them into the leaders of today; we did this by founding a Children's Summer Camp. We grew into a year-round resort and conference center from that business to remain open and support a full-time staff throughout the year.

We love our jobs at Wonder Valley Ranch Resort because every day is a different experience in the customer service industry, especially with what our facility can offer, but because we are a family friendly environment and our staff are happy to help our customers.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I had a customer see me at a completely unrelated event about 8 months after having an event at Wonder Valley Ranch Resort and she began to tear up a bit and had to come up to me to thank me for all we did for her past event to go above and beyond and make it special.
