Just north of the Dells, tucked off of Highway 82, sits Woodside Ranch Resort & Conference Center. The historical Woodside Ranch has been hosting visitors in the comforts of its cabins and cozy common areas since the 1920s. In addition to providing a perfect place to escape, Woodside is known for their fleet of gorgeous horses. Believe it or not, Woodside Ranch has over 100 horses in every shape, size and color. Horses like Lucy, Jasper, Dallas, Tonto and Kit Kat even seem to have their own following on Woodside’s facebook page. These majestic animals have been delighting guests year-round. Now that there is snow all around, it’s a special treat to head out for a winter activity at the Ranch.
Try horseback riding through the frosted forest surrounding the Ranch. Or try the pony ring with the little ones. The whole family can travel together on a picturesque sleigh/wagon ride. No matter what activity you choose, you’ll find a friendly group ready to help. There are many levels of experience found among the wrangler staff, from having worked one year at Woodside Ranch to having worked 20!
The resort also offers a sledding/tubing hill and scenic cross country skiing. If you are staying at the resort, all of the activities are free for registered guests. Day visitors are encouraged as well. For more information and day visitor pricing, visit: http://woodsideranch.com/dayvisitors/. Happy Trails!
