The horses were well taken care of and obedient. The rides were smooth and the guides were helpful to those that don't normally ride.

We love Black Stallion! It is so fun for families and larger groups. We were with a large camp group, and they handled all of the children with ease.

On the ziplines, we were led by Danny, Marco and Horatio and were first instructed on safety. We then practiced on a mini zip line. I have... More

Where do I start? We had an awesome time here.... A large group of us with kids ranges from 9-12 did the zip lining followed by horseback riding (sunset tour), then BBQ dinner to wrap up our day.
