Wagon Wheel Stables is run by a real cowboy, an older gentleman with a slow southern drawl.
Once he selected a steed for each member of my family, we saddled up for a ride on trails through country hills, and even across a small stream.
While we rode, the owner recounted stories from the older days, and a lot of history about the area.
The riding itself was easy - the horses were well behaved and went where you told them to.
It was a great day at the ranch!
