Even though we have done much riding before, I didn't know that swimming with horses would be so much fun! Peter took his time to explain us how western-riding works. He shared some pretty usefull tricks with us and found always a funny way of explaining it, so it wouldn't get boring ;-) we didn't leave the stables before we... More

This is the third year we have ridden with Peter. Oh sure he can be rough around the edges but really, people need to get over that. My four year old daughter had the time of her life. She received nothing but kindness and respect from Peter and all of his staff. It was the perfect amount of time in... More

We found the staff and owner to be knowledgeable and friendly. There initial training helped both my girls feel comfortable on the horses before taking... More

This was my very first real horseback riding trip. Peter made it amazing for my friends and I. We had a amazing time. Peter's personality was entertaining which made it even better. I would for sure come back again and we are planning to sometime soon. Thank you Peter for making this the best. We will see you soon!

We had called ahead to make reservations for our ride. Was told it would roughly be a 2hr trip. The 1st hr was mostly spent on the owner training his staff. His unique fowl mouth way of training was entertaining, but I felt bad for the staff. The pamphlet was miss leading... It says horseback riding. It was actually horseback... More

Thank You! for the great experience! The trail ride wasn't anything special but swimming with the horse was spectacular! Owner was great and knew exactly what he was doing. Read a lot of the reviews before we went. For anyone who reads these, the owner is not rude in anyway to his customers or staff, he is firm. He has... More

Very friendly staff, beautiful horses, enjoyed the lesson, short trail ride and time in the water. But experience was ruined and wanted to leave partway through because of rude owner spending most of the time criticizing his staff. Might be ok for adults but children shouldn't be around swearing and almost verbally abusing behaviour. I felt very uncomfortable.
