Walking and Loping Rides - Circle Z Ranch

Pick Your Pace

All of our trails have areas suitable for walking, trotting, or loping. Each of our different rides, including the all-day and the cookouts, provides options for walking or loping. One of our strengths is that we can tailor our rides to the needs and skills of our guests. With seven wranglers, our groups of riders are small and riders are given the attention they need to make the experience fun and safe for everyone. Once mounted on your horse at the corrals, our corral manager will break the riding groups up according to abilities and desires of those riding. Whether you want a leisurely walking ride or a faster-paced loping ride, we guarantee your satisfaction.

If you are new to riding, we will teach you the basics. Once you feel comfortable, we can also teach you to trot and lope. For intermediate and advanced riders, we offer rides that have moderate to longer lopes, depending on the terrain. With sandy canyons, open roads, and smooth trails, we have many options for the perfectly-paced rides to suit your needs.
