One of the loveliest experience I shared with my family was a horse-drawn carriage ride through Saddleback Ranch and up the hills to chow down with some cowboys. Guests can also choose to ride the horses to the chow house, but we sat back and enjoyed the views. The sunset was spectacular. In the winter, they replace the wagon with a sleigh and light it all up so you can take in the winter wonderland as the horses pull along.
Reservations for the preset menu are required and it is totally worth the trip out into the country.
