Was I this scared when I rode a bike for the first time? Probably. And how did I do? Fantastic but it was only because one of the guides walked next to my horse for the first 5 minutes. I mean he walked on the ground, not on a horse because I was such a baby! When the horse did... More

Decided to take my niece and bF riding here on a Saturday morning. Arrived and when we asked if we could walk, trot & canter and we're told "of course.". We ended up in a big group of about ten. The guide was great and friendly but after a while I asked when we could go faster and he said... More

It was my very first time on a horse and I was a bit apprehensive about this but the owner, Julie and her staff of friendly horse professionals picked out the perfect horse for me. Before I knew it, I was riding along with the rest of the pack and our family enjoyed a truly beautiful outdoor day together riding... More

This place was wonderful. many others are saying it was terrible. Maybe the horses are a little unresponsive but in my experience the little kids got the nicest horses. one girl around 7 got a big horse. No one knew why but it was because it was the most calm and was in fact very slow. Adults and teens got... More

I had read reviews and ignored them. Big mistake. They were obviously overbooked and didn't care. There were over twenty in our group and there was no instruction and the horses were not manageable. They crowded together through the tunnels and were biting each other. It was completely unsafe. I was trying to keep my horse under control and the... More

I can't believe the articles listed on July 30th. It was obvious that the mgt did not attend to the animals. When we arrived the horses were in holding stalls without any water. They took the horses from there and we rode an hour then they immediately were returned to the same stalls- again NO WATER! This is outrageous! The... More

I have over 35 years experience training and showing horses and I recently took a friend with his two kids to go on the trail ride and they had a fabulous time and can't wait to go again. The horses are taken excellent care of and are safe and very spoiled from all the carrots people give them! As for... More

We have been to other stables and this one is the BEST, hands down. The animals are healthy and beautiful , not run down. They have bigger horses for heavier riders, thank you!! The instruction before the ride is helpful. On the ride, the guide gave me some pointers too. Remember, heels down, toes up!

I started coming here in June 4th. The first time I walked in I felt at very comfortable because of the friendly smiling faces. The first horse I rode was Daisy. The ride was so beautiful enjoying I contined to come back. My guide was very professional and informative on what I should do while riding. A few weeks later... More
