Went on an hour and a half trail ride last Friday with Heather as our guide. It was a really enjoyable experience and Heather was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions about the proper technique when riding a horse.

We were not allowed to pick the... More

I took my granddaughter for a trail ride. This was the first time we went here and found the guide and instruction very good. My granddaughter has ridden before, but was a little tentative at first, but soon was out there riding and enjoying herself. The trail was excellent and was tree covered most of the way, making it cooler... More

Took the family to celebrate my birthday and couldn't have picked a better way to relax. Horses are calm and the staff was excellent. Even my 10 y.o. grandson loved it, Will definitely go back.
