A vacation with your horse in Oregon is easy at Tired Dog Ranch. We are decidedly horse friendly, with our own horses kicking up a storm on the Ranch!
We have 3 pastures with various holding pens, exercise/training corrals, super clean water troughs, and easy load and unload areas, with easy turn arounds... no backups necessary. We are geared to make it easy for a horse vacation - easy on both you and your equine buddy.
One pasture is pretty much entirely electric fence and has a training corral and 8 holding pens. The other two pastures are surrounded entirely with well maintained no-climb 42" field fencing, a top line of electric tape - from ground up provides 4' of safe containment.
We rotate our horses from pasture to pasture, so if you have horses, let us know well in advance so we can muck out the pasture you will use, and get everything ready and double checked. We also have hay for sale by the bale ($5/60# bale), so no need to haul around your own.
Just adjacent to the property are horse riding trails in Oregon's majestic Willamette National Forest, making Tired Dog Ranch especially horse friendly for Oregon trail rides. The trails are easy to moderate in difficulty, well marked, and very fun.
Just down the road about 3/4 mile due west is a decommissioned, gated forest road. It is a fun horse riding trail that ranges from easy to semi-challenging, and goes on for miles into the Oregon forest, along bubbling streams, bridges over a river and through the woods - quite beautiful. To the east along the forest road is Larison Trail, a fairly technical trail with grade, cutbacks, zig zags and narrow shelves. What a treat to ride like our pioneers of the past!
We can adapt to your horse needs, and our surrounding area boasts of some great veterinarians, farriers and hoof trimmers. If you want a great horse vacation, retreat, seminar, clinic or just to horse around, Tired Dog Ranch is ready for you and Charlie!
