My 5-year-old neice's trip to Texas involved two objectives: to ride a horse and meet a real cowboy. And this she did and more at the Lil Buckaroo Ranch.
I searched for a place for her to ride a horse but was afraid I would have to buy an expensive lesson for her to do so. I was lucky to call this particular ranch and set up an afternoon appointment for the next day. We ended up bringing the whole family and the owners were waiting for us when we pulled up. For the better part of an hour, the kids met a variety of animals, helped with ranch chores, and rode horses, all for what I feel was a more than reasonable price. A very fun and interactive experience.

I booked my son's birthday party at Little Buckaroo Ranch in April (almost 4 months ahead of time). Wednesday before the party I realized there was a 60% chance of rain so I contact LBR to find out what happens if it rains thinking they probably had an indoor barn that could be used. Miriam's (owner) response was that if it was raining the morning of she would call me and we'd have to reschedule for another day. Here?s the problem, the party starts at 10:30, if she calls at 9:00am to "reschedule" I have very little time to contact 50 people to let them know the party has been cancelled, moved, etc. Especially when the ranch is almost an hour outside of Austin, it would be hard to contact everyone before they left their houses. When I expressed my concern on this, I was basically told tough luck. So I decided to go the safe route and cancel the venue and find somewhere new. When I called, Miriam was completely rude and practically yelled at me for cancelling. I made no argument about them keeping my deposit even though I felt the rain policy was unfair. Beware: owners are not very friendly and if there is a chance of rain, your party will be cancelled.
