Brasada Trails


The horses wait, ready, decked out in the finest saddles and tack. They already know how incredible this is going to be. The only question is, which way shall we ride today?

The Brasada Ranch Equestrian Center and Resort is home to some of Bend Oregon's best horseback riding. Within the resort we have miles of soft Bend Oregon trails to explore. We could head north, on an easy trot through green pasture. We could ride to the top of Spirit Rock to watch the sunset over the Cascade Peaks. Or maybe you prefer a longer ride up the rimrock-studded hills that climb the backside of Powell Butte to the east, where our skills will be surely challenged. Whatever direction you choose, Brasada Ranch provides a customized Oregon equestrian and horseback riding experience just for you.

You're Not Just a Passenger

No matter what sort of trail ride you choose, you won’t feel like just a passenger. Your guide will teach you everything you need to know before you set out. Our wranglers pride themselves on teaching folks what horses are really all about, and there is simply no better way to get to know our horses than riding one through the canyons of Brasada Ranch. Please inquire with any riding request you may have at the time of reservation; our staff, horses and terrain are equipped to accommodate almost any request.

After all, The Equestrian Center is set on over 900 acres within Brasada Ranch. The canyons and rugged slopes of the Powell Buttes provide spectacular opportunities for riders of all ability levels, and our wranglers do everything they can to make sure that each ride is as unique as the riders on it.
