For Riders of ALL Abilities…
Rancho Escondido Therapeutic Riding & Equine Assisted Therapy (RETREAT) is a 501(c)(3) New Mexico Nonprofit Corporation that provides Therapeutic Horseback Riding, Traditional Riding Lessons, and other equine services to children, adolescents and adults of ALL abilities.
Rancho is a non-competetive learning place where children of all ages can come to experience horses and ranch life. We teach both English and Western riding disciplines, and children will learn how to catch, brush, groom, tack and ride.
In addition to Riding Lessons, we also offer other horse-related services:
Painted Party Ponies: Come paint (and play with) our ponies! We have mini-ponies and draft horses that can be the center of your birthday party, Quince or other celebration. Groups up to 15 can take turns painting, decorating and playing with the horses! Create your own ranch adventure!
Summer Horse Camp: Every summer toward the end of June, we hold a week-long summer camp! The theme for 2024 is Renaissance Fair and we’ll have everything from Henna booths to siege weapon competitions, in addition to lots of horseback riding. Click here for more details.
Horse Boarding and Horse Hotel Services: We offer overnight boarding by the day and by the month, with annual contracts available. Take advantage of our two arenas, round pen, break room with a shower and, of course, our BLM Land Access, where you can ride your horse all the way to Tucson if you dare!
