The J Ranch
Trail rides are back at J Ranch. Quarter mile down the road from J Ranch is one of the most beautiful equine trails in DFW Metroplex which surrounds Lake Grapevine.
WHAT TO KNOW PRIOR TO YOUR TRAIL RIDE:
-Best to wear long fitted pants going past the ankle plus boots or hard-bottom shoes for best footing in stirrups. If you don't have the proper footwear, no problem, we have a few youth-sized boots that can be borrowed for your lesson.
-Riding helmet is required for anyone under 18 years old. J Ranch provides riding helmet or bring your own helmet, if you already own one.
-Long hair should be pulled back into a low ponytail or pinned back.
Safety is our priority and the recommended attire above are important aspects to best riding safety & comfort.
Our horses are safe and gentle enough for first-time riders and enjoyable for experienced riders.
Maximum weight limit of 225lb per rider. Unfortunately, none of our horses can handle weights over 225lb.
Please call, text or email with any questions you may have. See you soon at the ranch!

**Important Info: While it's okay to fudge on your weight at the DMV, please give us the facts. It is very important for us to know your true weight and height. This information is collected to fit you for the proper saddle, horse and tack up your horse in advance for the trail ride. Saddles come in many sizes, allowing proper seat space and leg length on stirrups is important to safety and comfort.
Trail ride scheduling is required at J Ranch. We offer many horseback riding services along with trail rides. Each trail ride is scheduled in advance, each horse is chosen based on riders previous experience, height & weight.
