During gun hunting season each fall, we can only take out 1 hour rides on our ranch as they allow gun deer hunting in the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. Longer rides in the mountains will be available between hunting seasons and after doe season. We ride all year and see more animals and birds during the winter -- critters like fox and deer!
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.
We are proud to announce that ATR has been recognized as one of the best trail ride destinations in the country. Most 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 Wolfe's more than 100 years of combined horse training knowledge and to hear some of their horse stories. They have been told countless times that 'they need to write a book'.

All rides are set up with reservations. Horses are carefully matched to riders. Rides conducted at the ranch include a brief session of instruction and practice in the 'round pen' where a rider can get acquainted with their horse and get the feel of riding it. 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 riders that want one. Saddle bags are provided for cell phones, cameras and water bottles.
