Join us for a picnic!



Looking for a place to have a picnic with your family?

River Lane Ranch is now open on select Sundays each month for visitors who wish to get out of the city, connect with nature and bring their picnic lunch to the ranch.



What’s happening on the ranch on Sundays? Are we bathing horses? Training horses? Driving training? The sky’s the limit but there is always something happening to watch and learn.

Bring yourself or your family and pack a lunch! We have several picnic tables or bring your own blanket or chairs and spread out. Enjoy the day in the peaceful surroundings of River Lane Ranch and the majestic Gypsy Cobbs horses. The Ranch is also home to several dogs who may also come by for a visit!

Enjoy your lunch surrounded by nature and the sights and sounds of a working Ranch!

Would you like to include some family photo’s of your trip to the ranch? We have just the photographer who can do it for you! Maureen Noce is an incredible local photographer who specializes  in equine and portrait photo’s. In fact she’s responsible for many of the photo’s you see on this page and on our social media pages. Contact us for all the details!
