Editor’s note and full disclosure: My daughter has taken lessons at Silver Buckle Ranch, as well as participated in the Afternoon at the Ranch program, and she also celebrated her 12th birthday at Silver Buckle. I’m not being compensated in any way for my unbridled (if you’ll pardon the pun) endorsement of this top-notch ranch, where the instructors are experienced and enthusiastic, the facilities are spotless, and the horses are calm and patient.
