Misty Meadows Ranch

Located in Conroe as part of the Treelake Complex, Misty Meadows Ranch welcomes girls of all skill levels and expertise.

At Misty Meadows Ranch, we offer a quality horseback riding and ranch program in a summer camp setting. Our program features various levels of horseback riding skill and instruction. The emphasis in all program levels is on skill development, progression and expanding knowledge of horses and horse care. Campers will have a riding test the first night of camp. Campers unable to meet the requirements of their program will be placed in an alternate program or may not be able to ride. Classes are kept small with a ratio of at least one instructor to six campers.
