Horseback Riding

Flying W is a working ranch, where you can see cattle and a vast variety of native wildlife, including deer, quail, wild turkey, beaver, porcupine, dove, and armadillos, to name a few. You might even catch a glimpse of ol' wiley coyote.

We'll travel up hill and down, across the creeks, through the brush, and around the wild turkeys. As one guest said, it doesn't seem like a trail ride as much as it is an adventure through some of best scenic countryside that Oklahoma has to offer. You won't believe the color and variety of this untamed prairie. Don’t forget to bring your camera!

Any rides lasting 2 hours or more all visit the historic buffalo kill site excavations and share details about the life of the Plains Indians. Over 2,300 years ago, these Indians would drive the bison into gullies or over cliffs, killing the massive animals for food and the warm hides.

The sites reveal the tools and cooking materials used by the early Plains Indians, including spear points, cutting knives, scrapping tools, and other instruments and cooking items used to prepare meat and hides.

Preparing for your Ride

Riders are matched to their horses based on their riding skills. They're all tame, but these are working ranch horses, not just critters that mosey around the field and back to the barn. You'll enjoy a real ride. You may also bring your own horse if you choose.

We do advise all riders to wear long pants and closed toe shoes so that we can visit the most interesting and scenic locations on our 1,200 acre ranch.

For those not quite ready for the saddle, we also offer wagon rides.

Reservations

Reservations are required. We can also take groups, like birthday parties and retreat attendees. Just give us a call, and we'll have the horses saddled and ready to go.

Trail riding is $40 per person per hour, or check out one of our Ranch Packages.

Horseback Classes

For those looking to become a more experienced rider, we also offer lessons at $100/hour for adults and $75/hour for kids.

Stabling & Bring Your Own Horse

Riders are welcome to bring their own horses. There is a fee of $5/day for guests who are not staying overnight. Horse stalls are $10/night, whether an overnight guest of the ranch or not. Please have your Coggins papers available.
