We enjoyed our trail ride hugely. The horses were lovely, and did all the hard work, guided ably by Dinah. A lovely setting on the escarpment, and with the trail passing vines and through shaded woodland. Highly recommended.

I am inexperienced rider so this was the perfect choice for me! It was a nice trail with well-trained horses and professional staff willing to answer any and every question we had. I thought it was a little expensive, but overall, it was a great experience for a beginner!

We really enjoyed the trail ride and the horses were beautiful and well trained. The only thing I would suggest is more staff around when you are first there. It would be a little more efficient if more than one staff were assisting people onto the horses at one time. I was the second one on the horse and by... More

Pretty good first experience, horses very cute with their own personalities, employees were very nice and informative, beautiful forest scenery. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that only 1 employee accompanied us on the ride. She stayed in the front leading us but I feel they also need to have an employee in the back following as...

As a birthday surprise, I took my partner horseback riding for the first time this past Saturday. It was incredibly fun and a memorable experience! The owner Dinah, her husband and another lady who guided us were so friendly and helpful! All the horses were adorable! I rode Bebe and my partner had Storm. Dinah paired everyone with horses with...

My friends and I have gone on rides with this company twice. The first time there were several other people along the second time it was just the two of us. I was given bailey both times, she is a stubborn one but the guides are always close by to help out and give you tips. I never felt like... More

This is a pretty standard horseback riding experience. I had some difficulty in getting a reservation. Every time I called it went to voicemail. I persisted because the price was very reasonable. Helmets are mandatory for this stable (no disclaimer you can sign to not wear a helmet). Some of the horses were placid but some others were more stubborn... More

What an amazing experience!! The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable. They paired us with the perfect horses for our past riding experience and personalities! The trails were pretty muddy but the horses did so well. We would definitely do this again and recommend it to everyone, no matter your past riding experience.

Dinah and her horses were fantastic! I rode Bebe and my husband rode Mack. Were were fairly novice riders with minimal experience under our belts but felt that these 2 horses were perfectly suited to our abilities. The trails were beautiful and I can only imagine that will be even more lovely as the summer comes on. We had quite... More

On an anniversary getaway with another couple, we decided that horseback riding would be a fun activity. The other couple are experienced riders, my husband and I have never ridden. I feel as thought we were paired with horses suited to our level. I rode Piper, my husband rode Mack. Admittedly I was very nervous throughout the entire ride. The... More
