At Riverview Ranch, children and beginners will enjoy a safe, slow introduction to horseback riding and an opportunity to interact with friendly animals. Meet our charming horses, miniature horses, mini pigs, goats, dogs, chickens, ducks, and guinea pigs in a magical setting while enjoying our spectacular view of the iconic Mississippi River. We operate rain or shine in our 60’ x 160’ indoor arena, 115’ x 255’ outdoor arena, or in surrounding pastures.

Extend your adventure at Riverview Resort, located within our 24,440 sqft. equestrian center, which offers comfortable, spacious 1300 sqft. apartments for overnight farm stays, as well as rental canoe and kayaks. Paddle to beautiful Beach Island and enjoy a BYO-picnic with your toes in the sand, or just explore the many islands and back channels at your own pace. Your journey will take you through a nature preserve with slow-moving waters and many islands, home to abundant wildlife, including many species of birds, turtles, beavers, and raccoon. Canoe and kayak rentals are available to the public for a 2-to-4 hour excursion.
