Yes, we are located on Miller, but our entrance is off La Madre.  Our neighbors on Miller are important to us and our ability to stay in this location.  They are not happy with traffic on Miller nor the speed of the cars, which is outside our control.  The posted speed limit in the Rural Neighborhoods is 25 MPH.  Please access the ranch from CONOUGH and turn on La Madre.

Ranch Rules

When visiting The Ranch Las Vegas, we ask that you please respect our Ranch Rules.  Thank you and we hope you enjoy your visit.

  • Children should wear closed toe-shoes on the ranch.  Children cannot ride horses or lead mini horses in flip flops or sandals.
  • There is NO RUNNING on the ranch.  Running can startle the horses and children can easily trip over rocks and tree roots. 
  • All cars should park in the parking lot, please park as close as possible to the next car to ensure room for all cars.  Children and parents should be mindful of cars entering and exiting the ranch. 
  • Please watch your speed limit on Miller and La Madre.  Posted speed limit is 25 MPH.
  • If children wear a dress or skirt, they must also wear shorts or leggings.  Children cannot get on a horse if they don’t wear the proper clothing.
  • During the summer, we will open our Splash Zone.  This is a play area with water and children must be supervised by parents.  Shoes and socks go in the plastic tote and children must wash off their feet when entering the pool or water slide.  All removed clothing items must remain inside the fenced area or with a parent.  Please bring your own towel.
  • There is no hand feeding of horses or farm animals at the ranch except for the Llama, and only if we give you a grape to feed.  This is for their safety and yours.
  • Please observe NO SMOKING signs and please don’t smoke in unauthorized areas.
  • Please do not bring weapons to the ranch, no guns or knives.  Even if you have a permit, please leave your gun(s) in the car for your safety and ours.
  • No climbing on the fences or rails.  If you enter the play area, please close the gates.

Enjoy your visit to The Ranch Las Vegas!  Thank you! 

Fitness Guidelines - Horses4Heroes’ The Ranch Las Vegas

Fitness Levels for Horseback Riding

Horseback riding is a sport, an athletic activity and anyone who rides horses should be in good physical condition.  The following is what is recommended for horseback riding.  Academy programs, including lessons, often have different guidelines than trail riding facilities.  We follow these guidelines at The Ranch Las Vegas, our HQ and flagship facility.

Fitness Level Guidelines

Riders need to be strong and flexible enough to mount the horse unassisted from a mounting block.  This requires lifting your foot at least 30″ off the ground to get it in the stirrup and pulling yourself up into the saddle with reasonable effort.  All riders must mount from a mounting block. 

Weight Guideliness

The national standard is that a horse can carry 20% of its body weight.  Most of our horses, many of whom are in their twenties, weigh about 1000 pounds, which puts their maximum carry weight at 200 pounds which includes the saddle and required tack. 

 

We have found that riders whose weight is not in proportion to their height often have less balance and, therefore, are more likely to fall off.  Overweight riders without the accompanying overall strength are not able to regain their balance if they tip forward or fall sideways.

 

Therefore, for the comfort and safety of both horse and rider, the following weight limitations are in effect at The Ranch Las Vegas:  For women, 175 pounds and 200 pounds for men.  These weight guidelines factor in the weight of our saddles, which ranges from 35 to 50 pounds. 

 

Management and our instructors reserve the right to request verification of the information given.  Exceptions will be made at our discretion.  We reserve the right to terminate a horseback riding session for safety reasons.  We do NOT tolerate aggressive or abusive behavior toward our horses.
