We completed the 55 minute trail ride today, it was a wonderful experience! Our guide Wes was great and helped us throughout the ride, our group had 5 riders total plus Wes. The views were gorgeous! We even heard a tree fall! The horses are sweet and great for riders with "minimal experience" (like myself). When you arrive, you check... More

Every year for the last 5 years, we have done the one hour trip, and every year it's been an enjoyable ride. The horses are tame and know where to go on the trail. Per the staff, the same family has owned this concession for 80 years, and three generations. Helmets for children are available upon request. For the first... More

Nice ride with my sons at Camp Richardson Corral. We did the 2 hour ride and the horses were calm and the ride not challenging. The views in the forest and along the lake were great. Staff was friendly and helpful.

I remember this corral as a young man when my parents would come to Tahoe every summer at Meek's Bay. This is a wonderful venue for your kids and adults. Take time for a ride, you'll enjoy it!

When you enter this place, it gives the impression of being quaint, and well maintained. The staff that greet you are friendly, knowledgeable, smiling, and willing to help. There are so many horses at this corral, and the staff invites you to take the time to greet them as you wait for your trail ride. I chose the extended ride,... More

First of all, make sure you make a reservation for this place. One can not just show up and hope to ride (at least we and another group of people could not). There is a 6 year old minimum limit for kids and a 225lb limit for adults. The horses are well behaved and follow one another. It is a... More

We took our grandkids (ages 3 & 5-1/2) for their first ride on a horse. They got "Pony Rides" because they are both under 6 yrs of age. That means they rode Cognac, who has recently retired from trail rides. She's a gentle horse & very patient with young children. Miss Becky led Cognac around a 1/2 mile loop on... More

Came here for a two hour ride with my granddaughter. The staff was friendly and our ride left on time. We rode to Fallen Leaf Lake but it was super windy so we didn't get to stay. This is a trail ride but there are some open spots and meadows so you can spread out a little from time-to-time. We... More

My wife and I took a 50-55 minute trail ride with Camp Richardson Corral, which was our first experience riding horses. They seemed to choose the horses that you ride based on your experience and physical size, and told us that most folks that come for the horseback riding have no experience riding. This was one of our trip highlights... More
