Iron Horse Golf Course at Double R Ranch Resort Ratings & Reviews
2 months ago
My daughter and I went horseback riding a few days ago. When I called to set up our trail ride, I was informed that because my daughter 5 years old, she would have to ride by herself (normally we ride double-back). I expressed my concerns with this, as she has never ridden by herself before. They said there was nothing they could do, and that she would have to ride by herself. I was not given an option. After debating this over and over again, and talking with my daughter about it, we decided to go anyway. She was so excited and loves horses. When we got there, I expressed my concerns three separate times again, and was informed each time that she would have to ride by herself. When they put her on her own horse, I asked one of the volunteers to please put her with me, because I was feeling very uncomfortable about the situation. He specifically said, "are you being paranoid? Look, I would put my own two-year old granddaughter on this horse. She is very good with kids, I PROMISE she will be OK." So, I trusted him and we went about the ride. About two minutes into the ride, my daughters horse suddenly stopped out of nowhere, and began rearing its head. After another minute, it took off running in the complete opposite direction that all the other horses were walking. The guide went after her, and I got my horse into a run after her also. They DIDN'T EVEN OFFER HELMETS!! The whole time the horse was running, I kept visualizing my daughter going flying off and suffering a serious head injury, or even being trampled on. We are so blessed she was able to hold on the whole time and never fell off. She could've been seriously hurt, and by THEIR neglect in my concerns. I will never be going back here again, and I will share my experience with everyone possible. This was so wrong on so many levels. They did not even offer me a refund. I still paid full price. Riding a horse by yourself should NEVER be determined by age, but instead by experience. I voiced my concerns several times, got blown off, and my daughter's life was put in jeopardy because of it! This should've never happened. Please be aware of this place and their unlawful rules. May my experience with this raise awareness to others who may someday be put in the same situation.

This was great! Especially for the inexperienced tubers. Water temperature was very nice. You could play in the water in shallow areas. One area swift enough to be a bit more challenging for those needing more excitement. Wonderful family fun at a reasonable price. I would give a different rating (can't say better or worse) if I'd been other places tubing, to know what to compare.

Great campsite with lots of space. Some of our party went horseback riding and loved it, others had fun golfing or tubing. It was extremely hot that week, so the pool was a welcome reprieve.
