We wanted to give our grandson's friend an experience riding a horse, since he never had the chance. Should have read the reviews before going. We were lumped together with the so-called "horse riding camp kids." We were never told that ten kids would be going along, or we would have rescheduled. Their instructor never introduced herself as our guide... More

My daughter and I have made this our usual place to unleash and unwind. Julie, the owner, is an awesome woman who loves every single horse and she also loves what she does. This love is reflected in her excitement to interact with us and teach us so much about these amazing creatures. The Rancheros are also very nice, knowledgeable... More

Came here with my wife and children. With the exception of my wife, it was our first time ever riding. 25$ cash only for an hour ride;However, if the rider is over 200 lbs, one has to pay an additional 10$. This is the part where I feel that I need to qualify. Most reviews are either very positive or... More

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
