Fiddlestix Ranch is the culmination of a horse-lover's dream.  From a young age, the owner-operator, Sarah Kimmel, had a vision of a family-run ranch that would be dedicated to training horses and people together in a safe and nurturing environment.

With an emphasis on family experiences, Fiddlestix provides a variety of opportunities for family and friends to bond, learn, laugh and share, all while enjoying the magnificent beauty of the Oregon countryside.
