No matter your ability level, Ikiutan Stables at Eagle Crest Resort provides everything from pony rides for our youngest guests, multi-hour trail rides for the more advanced, and plenty of experiences in between. We also love to have guests just come by the stables, up on The Ridge, to say hello and meet the horses. At Ikiutan Stables, meaning Wild Stallion in native Wasco, you'll find head wrangler Chris Buller, his team of experienced wranglers, and plenty of beautiful horses waiting to take you and your family on an authentic horseback ride.
When you arrive, you'll be taught about the horses, and when you are ready, you'll head out on the trails. But don't expect the ordinary riding experience that is offered at most Central Oregon resorts. Here, the wranglers are happy to customize rides as requested. Unless special arrangements are made, we keep our groups at 8 or fewer rides.
