"I have been boarding at Dougherty Ranch for the last 8 years. Before that, I was at 5 different facilities in the prior ten years. Some were good, some were awful - none were fantastic. That is how I feel about Dougherty ranch though - it's fantastic. I love I can bring my young kids there, my daughter takes lessons, we all love to hang out with our horses, whether riding or just having some "feel good" grooming/turn out time. I cannot recommend the ranch highly enough, and the trainers, Siri, is awesome as well! Five Stars from this Marin mom and horse owner."


"I have been boarding my horse at the Dougherty's Ranch for two years. My mare and I couldn't be happier. Any special need she requires is tended to without question. There are so many amenities to the ranch that any of the various needs that may arise for your horse can more than likely be met. The ranch is also full of very down to earth riders of all ages. Everyone participates in the community and Bob and Dianna couldn't be better hosts. My mare and I have also had the priveledge of working with Siri Larssen as our trainer at the ranch since the day we arrived. Siri has broken many of our bad habits and my mare and I are now enjoying a wonderful trusting relationship. Siri has a special talent for understanding where both my mood and my mare's mood are on any given day (or moment for that matter). If you asked for a rating, I'd give my ranch and trainer the highest marks possible."


"I have run my training business at the Dougherty Ranch since 2003. Bob and Diana Dougherty are the most down to earth ranch owners I have ever worked with. They are very responsive to the different needs of their clientele whose interests include: jumping, dressage, trail riding, gymkhana, and pleasure. This is a good spirited ranch to come to each day and very welcoming to families. The Dougherty Ranch also offers all the amenities needed for starting young horses requiring a variety of experiences: a round pen, an enormous outdoor arena with excellent footing and beautifully maintained jumps, a 3/4 mile trail loop on the property before reaching Marin Open Space, and a nice sized indoor with great lighting. We host some small playdays and jumping events throughout the year and the kids are always welcome at the Dougherty pool on hot summer afternoons. This is one of the few remaining horse ranches where every effort is made to include everyone at affordable prices in a gorgeous setting. "
