Guest Capacity


California’s Lost Sierra

Greenhorn Ranch is a guest ranch in California’s Lost Sierra. Horseback riding takes center stage on the ranch. Our goal is to get Greenhorns in the saddle safely.

Home Away From Home

A home away from home, Greenhorn Ranch welcomes you as family. Wranglers and Greenhorns break bread at the same table. With 660 acres and access to 500,000 acres of public land for riding, 80 head of horses, our home is just more fun than yours.

Cowboy Living is Alive and Well

Our wranglers will teach you how to ride a horse with confidence or help you improve your riding skills. Come and cultivate your cowboy, California-style. Explore Greenhorn Ranch. A ranch with a focus on horseback riding, outdoor adventures, western culture, and reconnecting with friends and family.

Between trail rides and fly fishing, we like to try to have some fun. Switching saddles for mountain bikes or tapping into the scenery’s inspiration for the arts, we offer a menu of additional events and activities which are available upon request. Additional on-site activities include off-road adventures, s’mores, swimming, whiskey & wine tasting, karaoke, lawn games, and more!
