Had a fantastic time there riding last weekend. Amazing trails! The terrain is beautiful and varied. Lots to see. The accommodations are very well designed and comfortable. Great for people and their horses too. Definitely worth the trip for a riding weekend. Thanks TRR!

Where to begin? The owners have done an amazing job of turning an ordinary place into something special. The decor, the facilities, the ambiance…all are just first-rate., for us and our fur babies The trails are fun and challenging and our guide knowledgeable and helpful. We had a group of six slightly crazy and greatly fun-loving women, most of whom knew one another just casually.Our stay at TRR helped us build a wonderful bond of friendship. What an incredible, wonderful, FUN

I cannot say enough good things about Train Robber Ranch. The facilities were luxurious for both people and horses. Riding on the well-marked trails was more fun than I have ever had – beautiful woods, enormous hills, steep ravines, fun creek crossings, and historic train tracks. I can’t wait to go back when the steam train is running later in the Spring.

Had The BEST Time riding in the Beautiful forest, up and down the hills, and through the Creeks !!! You can venture out on your own with well marked trails, or have a guide..We had a guide.

My second time here and another fantastic time!! So many natural obstacles and challenging hills on the trails. There’s no place like this around! I can’t wait for my next trip! The accommodations for you and your horse are outstanding and the trails from the property are well marked.

My 2nd visit to TRR this year was Awesome! It’s hard to remember that you are in Texas when you get to have such a varied terrain of ravines, creek crossings, and scenic views across rolling hills. All while riding miles and miles of marked trails with best footing!

I had an amazing time at Train Robber Ranch the last few days with our host Jennifer Moureau Goebel and friends Becky Padgett Dewane Boutwell Weaver Mindy Short Kirkpatrick Sandy Ross Naumann Joy Mcdaniel and Nancy. The trails and weather were outstanding, accommodations for humans and horse were fabulous, and I haven’t laughed so much in a very long time. WC may not be a trail horse with crossing gullies that I couldnt even walk down, much less crawl out of, but he proved himself capable of hauling me and my fat rear end down and out of those slippery suckers and back to the ranch with not a scratch on either of us. Even jumped in a couple of creeks like it was nothing. Grateful for the opportunity to do crazy stuff like this and the Good Lord watching over all of us and protecting us and our animals from harm.

Had a great ride at Fairchild today. All the years that I have been riding out here road on a trail I had never been on today just one of the reasons this is my favorite place to ride. Thank you Austin for letting me ride your awesome horse. The definition of fun…Night Train and Fairchild. So glad the Goebel family took time out their busy schedule ride with Nancy and I today the bunk rooms new kitchen look great love the new hitching post there is always something new to make it easier for the folks staying here.

TRAIN ROBBER RANCH IS THE BOMB!!! Just spent 3 days there riding the incredible trails and did NOT want to leave! Jennifer and her family have created a lil slice of heaven for horse lovers. Have traveled to many equestrian destinations and TRR is at the top! We will most definitely be going back.

I do not have Facebook but I wanted to send you a review anyway. I really enjoyed staying at your place. Our group was a mixture of folks with and without LQ trailers so it was great to all get to be together. I liked not having to pack all that extra stuff and staying at Train Robber made it so easy. We could just go have fun. There were things to do in the area that we all enjoyed but the riding was exceptional. I ride all over the U.S. and can honestly say that this was one of the best rides I have ever been on. It’s also so close to our home in LA! I cannot thank you enough for opening a place like this for all to enjoy. I have already booked my return trip! Looking forward to seeing all the changes you guys make. Working with you to ensure we had a great trip was so nice as well. You are a gracious host. See you soon! oh, and 5 stars for sure!

I just got back from such an incredible two days of riding the most beautiful trails on this amazing property! Well groomed, safe trails with lots of variation. Creeks to cross, hills to climb, ravines to go thru and all of them winding truth beautiful forest. Secluded, peaceful and easy to get to. Very nice barn with stalls, individual pens, and paddocks for your horses. Accommodations include a cleverly decorated bunkhouse with full bathroom and a cabin with full kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. All new furniture, appliances and appointments. Lots of seating area around barn and cabin and fire pit to enjoy the beautiful scenery outside. AND the stars at night!!!!
I highly recommend this beautiful facility for families and friends as a place to get away from the rush and busyness of life and to slow down and enjoy such an awesome piece of God’s creation!

I returned home shortly ago from this beautiful ranch in the middle of one of the most scenic areas of Texas. From the crisp, new bedding to the vast parking areas and pastures to the comfy and inviting home, this place is heavenly. I spent two night here with a group of women and horses. So many beautifully marked trails that wind through vast wilderness and give challenges along the way. Each horse pen is new and very secured. All is well lit so that coming in late from a ride in the forest gave no issues. The interior of the home is perfectly decorated as well is the bunkhouse with it’s own full bath. Hot water was abundant which was a very pleasant surprise. The home is somewhat secluded down a long dirt road so we had no safety concerns whatsoever. The owner gives out detailed maps of the trails into the natural forest but also offers guides if needed. We utilized a guide and so glad that we did because they were informative and helped customize our rides to our needs. Honestly, I will be back many times over because the trails never seem to end and the beauty is abundant.

If you are looking to enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and want to enjoy God’s country, head on over to Train Robber Ranch. This place is AMAZING!!! The trails are the best I’ve ever been on. The ranch property is breathtaking with lots of variety. There is a large barn with stalls, separate pens, and divided pastures. Something for everyone’s preference! From rolls hills, creek crossings, and winding trails through the property and forest you will not be disappointed. The housing accommodations are just wonderful. Beautifully decorated bedrooms and bunkhouse with plenty of space to relax inside and outside. This place is great for any type of visitor whether it be family or friends get away. You will love it!!! I can’t wait to go back to show my loved ones this hidden gem.

Great place to visit. I stayed in the bunk house and the beds were very comfortable. It had a nice bathroom with a hot shower. The horse facilities were excellent as well. Well kept place with easy access to the great trails of Fairchild State Forest. There is also a house to rent that was very nice looking as well. I will be back!!!

I loved staying here. We rode around Train Robber Ranch our first night we arrived and then the next day made a short ride over to Fairchild State Forest. You have it all here! Beautiful and homey accommodations, and miles and miles of trails for you and your family/ friends to explore on horseback. I look forward to my next Train Robber Ranch vacation!
Susanne WilkersonFive stars out of five
Year around the trails are accessible. No shoes needed on the horses. Stalls and Pastures!!! The Bunkhouse is the perfect size for a group of 4. Ride trails straight out from the barn. Absolutely Beautiful!
Cheri WeeksFive stars out of five
I could spend every free moment at this ranch. The accommodation are excellent for both horse and rider. The trails go on for miles and miles. The scenery is beautiful and is perfect for the entire family even if they don’t ride. Tons to do in nearby towns with all the historical sights. Can’t wait till my next visit because it is hard to find a place with 5 star accommodations for the horses.

I stayed at TRR for the weekend this past October. I highly recommend this ranch…the house is darling and spotless. There is also a bunkhouse, barns, pens and pastures. The trail riding is fabulous and there are many options. A great weekend getaway! All the group had a blast!
Michelle Madden HerringFive stars out of five
I’m a little sad I could only give 5 stars. This place deserves more. It is the perfect getaway with your horses. I can’t wait to go back and visit again.
Nancy Kacvinski Five stars out of five
Great weekend at Train Robber Ranch. Great accommodations for people and horses. Roomy stalls, pens in the shade, trails through the forest, through creeks and up hills – or there are mostly flat trails – something for everyone. Can’t wait to go back!
