Located near Khao Yai a couple kilometres east off Thanarat Rd, the Bonanza Ranch is a sprawling resort and cowboy theme park that draws thousands of Thai visitors each year.
We found the place to generally be tacky and not worth the money, except for the horse riding program at Bonanza's OK Corral. Experienced riders and ropesman offer a range of programs, from intensive riding lessons to overnight horse-back riding expeditions in the Khao Yai area.
Riding hours are from 8:00 to 11:00 and 15:00 to 17:00 each day, and if you can't find the OK Corral check in at the resort, where someone will be happy to help if they're not busy with another bus load of freshly arrive local tourists.
Bonanza is located a couple kilometres off Thanarat Rd with many clearly marked signs leading there.
