YYour horse deserves to live in a place as beautiful and majestic as it is.

Conveniently located in Bastrop County and only 40 miles east of downtown Austin on Highway 290, Just twelve miles north of Smithville, only eighteen miles from Bastrop, twenty miles from Elgin, and twelve miles from Giddings. The ranch provides the most idyllic environment imaginable. The peaceful quiet, plentiful wild animals, native forests with riding trails, open fields, and water features will take your breath away.

We have hundreds of acres of ranch land, forests, streams, etc. for your enjoyment. We also have weekend and evening housing for those wanting to visit. Our six-horse barn backs to one of our most scenic areas of the property with large run-ins, and direct access to a paddock. Our northern pasture is a massive ten-acre area. Additional pasture boarding is available throughout the five hundred-acres of Valkyrie Ranch. Our horse-safe fencing is welded pipe.

The facility offers an uncovered 100x200’ arena, a fifty-foot round pen, jumping equipment, dressage letters and cavaletti equipment, and medical stocks.

Trail riding is available by appointment, and we love hosting trail riding groups. We have trails for every skill level rider. The ranch and equestrian program also hosts unique training throughout the year, such as Mounted Archery clinics and demonstrations.

Our support staff is onsite 24x7. The entire property is secured with high fencing, surveillance systems, and key code gate entry allowing boarders 24x7 access to their horses.

Valkyrie Ranch is proud to be the home of the Cedar Creek Saddle Club. They operate and manage all equestrian services on the property.


This is Speedy! He, and his grey fellow miniature horse, Casper, are the perfect companion friends to all horses (and many of the deer) here on the property. Blink, and Speedy is off to another location in his daily rounds of socializing with all the animals on the ranch.
