Every year, hundreds of equine enthusiasts gather together to spend a weekend at the Gant-Larson Ranch.

With access to 10,000 acres, rider enjoy the wide-open spaces that make this ride unlike any other experienced. Both organized and private riding is provided on the ranch year round. Visitors must provide their own mount, tack and camping equipment.
The Gant-Larson Ranch and Gyp Hills Trail Rides were featured on a 2011 episode of RFD-TV’s Best of America by Horseback. The ranch has also served as filming locations for Hollywood movies and television commercials.
