Kids had fun

While my younger kids went on a 1 hour trail ride my older daughter and I went on a bike ride along the creek. My kids enjoyed the riding very much. They liked their guide

Me, hubbie and my 2 sons went for a 1 hr. ride while we were in Squaw Valley for vacation. It was great. We had time before the ride to interact with the horses. Our horses were gentle, calm, and well behaved (as an anxious mom, that was my main concern). Our guide Matt was knowledgeable, friendly, and good with... More

Our 7 year old granddaughter requested horseback riding as part of our family reunion in Lake Tahoe. It was her first time and once she got up on the horse she was very hesitant and did not want to go but Matt put her at ease and we all enjoyed the trip very much. There were two guides in our...

Last summer, my husband and a friend took their four kids on a four-hour ride. The horses spooked repeatedly, and there were two incidents in which children were thrown by the horses: one, because the horse rolled; the other, because one horse kicked another in the chest. My daughter has been riding for five years and said the horses felt... More

My 15 year old son and I went on a 2 hour ride. The entire ride was through the woods on rocky trails. No vista's. My son was on a lame horse, that limped the whole ride. I was concerned for his safety. I wouldn't do this ride again. Boring and stressful due to the horses tripping on all the... More

My husband and I always try to horseback on a trip to a beautiful area..such as Lake Tahoe. Alpine Meadows Stables didn't disappoint. We were able to get reservations for the time requested the day before (the week after Labor Day weekend). Our guides Lara and Martin were wonderful, making things comfortable and answering questions along our one hour ride.... More

My daughter is a young equestrian and wanted to get some riding in while we were in Tahoe. I saw the other reviews of Alpine Meadows Stables so we decided to try it. We called in the morning and got to ride on the same day, a two hour trail ride. 60 bucks was a great deal. Dusty was the... More

My girls (ages 5, 7, and 9) wanted to try horseback riding. We booked a 1 hour trail ride. The guides were concerned about whether my 5-year-old would be able to handle the horse, so one guide led her horse for her. The horses were very calm, the guides did a good job of selecting animals for us. The other... More

My granddaughter loves horses and is saving her money to buy a horse. She is seven and has never really ridden a horse so I took her horseback riding at Alpine Meadows Stables. The two hour ride confirmed that she wants a horse! We rode through beautiful, rugged country and she handled her horse all by herself! We went through... More
