We did the 2 hour ride up to Fallen Leaf Lake as a group of 2 adults and 4 kids, the youngest being 6. The horses were very calm and the leader of the group was very friendly and told us a lot about the area as we took a meandering stroll through some beautiful scenery. The approach to Fallen... More

My son and I had a blast. Our guide Wes, was very patient with my 10 year old and all his questions. He pointed out local sights, plant life, talked about regrowth after a fire several years ago as well as the changes logging has made to the area.

This place is a gem but make sure the road is open because the road runs under areas that are prone to avalanches.

Typical stable with some mild manned horses and some with a little attitude. My 5 year old cousin got the ride of her life when her horse decided to break away from the pack and take off. It all ended ok. My son got to ride a donkey when they ran out of horses. The trails are beautiful.

We went on a 2 hour ride during a our annual girl's trip. The horses looked very healthy and well-cared for. The ride was spectacular. Every bit of the trail was beautiful. We rode to Fallen Leaf lake and had pictures taken. One of the riders on our group got sick during the ride and someone from the corral came... More

My husband and I are not experienced riders and our horses were a little rowdy for our comfort. He was behind me (in the order that the staff put the horses in) and his horse nipped my horse on the behind. They both took off for a little ways and we were a little uneasy about that, not being that... More

Cross country skiing was pretty simple, but I'm a novice so it was enough trail for me. We also went snowshoeing across the street. Lack of snow on lake level made it a little harder for the snowshoeing. I thought pretty expensive for us it was $14/pp for a whole day. The staff was good, and helped us wax our... More

$40 for 50 min horse ride. Very scenic. Go on a weekday if possible, to have the scenery all to your self.

You can't take Texas out of the gal. We love to take a trail ride while at Lake Tahoe. It was our 3rd time to use the Camp Richardson Stable. Good riding stock tailored to fit your riding experience - or the lack thereof. Such a pleasure to breathe the mountain air - or dust, if you bring up the... More

I made a reservation for a Tuesday ride at 12:00 noon for 6 people. I called the Sunday before my ride to see if I could add to my group and was told that at 6 people our group was full and could not add. When our group arrived the day of our reservation i was told we showed up... More
