Echo River Ranch is small and privately owned. We have only a few horses available for
rental on guided trail rides.
The ranch hopes to remain small enough to continue providing that private ride experience to every customer.

For such a small farm, there are a lot of things that need to be done. And there never
seems to be enough hours in the day to do it all.
We have set up this chore list in hopes that we find persons able to help. We will barter your two hours of completed chores for an hour of local horseback riding.

Donations are always appreciated. We gladly accept donations of any items on our wish list.
Please notify us before dropping off any items so that we can thank you appropriately. We are not accepting donations of horses or other animals at this time.

A little bit about us . . .
Echo River Ranch is a small private ranch located in south King County just
north of Enumclaw. It has easy highway access from the bigger cities of Olympia, Tacoma, Seattle, and Bellevue;
as well as the many smaller cities within Thurston County, Pierce County, and Snohomish County.
The ranch offers guided horseback trail rides always at a walk for riders of all ages. Both riders who have
never been on a horse and riders with years of experience will enjoy these trail rides.
Locally the guided hourly rides, treat rides, scavenger
hunt rides, and dinner rides use trails on right-of-way access roads and nearby state owned land. For longer rides,
we trailer horses and riders to one of the many nearby trailheads and trail systems. Reservations are required to
insure that horses will be available.
