At the Sunderland Ranch, we are proud to offer Alaska horseback rides & trail rides for all levels of riders. Our ranch is home to about 20 horses, many born and raised on the ranch. Our horses are mostly sure footed & well-rounded quarter horses. While beautiful in stature and temperament, they are also sure-footed and full of personality. Dust off your boots and spurs and don’t forget your hat! Your wrangler will give you a quick rundown of the do’s and how to’s to make your adventure a success. Trails are easy to book and no experience is necessary.
