Arbuckle Trail Rides, LLC was started by Pete and Cheri Wolfe, owners of Wolfe Ranch Quarter Horses. After 35 years of training horses professionally, they needed to slow down and retire from hard competitive riding. Taking out a few trail riders seemed to fit their background perfectly. Now, they cannot keep up with the demand -- at least until the pandemic hit. Pete and Cheri are both nearly 80 years old and have lived on this place for 40 years.
We are proud to announce that ATR has been recognized as one of the best trail ride destinations in the country. Recently, we were voted "Best trail ride provider in Oklahoma" by the readers of "Oklahoma Living Magazine", Oklahoma's magazine with the most subscribers in the state. Each year, several International groups come to ride. Many riders come just to learn from the Wolfes' more than 100 years of combined horse training knowledge and to hear some of their horse stories. They have been told countless times: 'You need to write a book'. They love to show visitors their stallions, mares and babies. They have sold horses all over the US and around the world!
Please CALL!!! We only have a PC and Cheri has not been feeling well, so please CALL and do not completely count on e-mail correspondence.
All rides are set up with reservations. Please call or text (580) 993-0097
You can use GPS to the Artesian Hotel in Sulphur and then continue 4.4 miles further north on US 177 and you will be in front of the ranch!!! You can also put 'Arbuckle Trail Rides' into Google- ONLY GOOGLE.
Please excuse the mess at the ranch. The ranch was hit by a huge EF4 tornado that wiped out the 2 houses, our barn, sheds and all fences. We are still trying to get rid of all the debris.
NO SMALL CHILDREN MAY BE CARRIED IN THE SADDLE BY AN ADULT. 5, 6 & 7 year olds may only go on the 1 hour ride. Children 8 and up may go on the 1 hour ride on the ranch or the 2 hour ride in the mountains.
All rides are set up by reservation. Horses are matched to riders. Rides conducted at the ranch may include a brief session in the 'round pen' where a rider can get acquainted with their horse. Saddles are always carefully fitted. Helmets are provided for all riders under 18 and must be worn at all times when riders are mounted. Helmets are available for any other rider that wants one. Saddle bags are provided for cell phones, cameras and water bottles.
Check out the 'prices page' for complete prices and group discounts. We expect people to keep their reservations. "NO SHOWS" will be charged.
We are very easy to find. We are located on the east side of US Hwy 177 exactly 4 1/2 miles north of the ARTESIAN HOTEL in downtown Sulphur.
