Your contribution will enable us to buy hay and pay our overhead in order to keep our trail horses and stay in business. We really do not think it is safe, but we have to start taking reservations for rides starting the weekend of May 8, 2020.
We are very grateful for your generosity. It is helping a lot.
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 39 years. "It breaks our hearts to have sell all of our trail horses in order to be able to feed the horses that are left. We have never asked for anything in our lives until now."
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'. 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.

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!!!
Please excuse the mess at the ranch. The ranch was recently hit by a huge EF4 tornado that wiped out the house, 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 2 hour rides in the mountains.
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.
