The Chism Family, Jeff, Sheryl, Sabrina, Cassandra, and Kasey (left to right) established the Chism Trail Ranch in 2006 to share with others what they know to be true: hard work strengthens individuals physically, emotionally, and socially.  The Chisms' enduring optimism and fun, family environment, permeates all of the horseback events held at the Ranch. Join the Chism Family for an afternoon or a weekend to experience the timeless cowboy lifestyle! ​

​Take the opportunity to ride a horse in the great North woods! Ride horses over trails with beautiful hills, along and through the picturesque Pine River.
