A visit to Smoke Tree Ranch is enhanced by an enjoyable morning or afternoon at Smoke Tree Stables, located on the southwest corner of our Ranch property.  K.C. Johnson and his experienced wranglers will match you to the best horse for your riding level, and they will lead you on the tour of your choice. For your convenience, riding charges may be placed on your Smoke Tree Ranch account, and we are happy to prepare Ranch box lunches. Riding packages include:
