After a few days at the beach, it was nice to do something a little different. It was my daughter's first time to ever ride a horse (age 8). The horses were gentle, the trail was easy enough, and the trail guide was great for a first timer. There was a lot of walking through more confined, marshy wet areas... More

This was one of the best rides I've done in the area. The scenery was beautiful and the instructor was very friendly and knowledgeable, she taught us a lot about the history of the trees and plants in the area which was a nice added bonus. This wasn't one of those boring trail rides that just goes along a road... More

By appointment only and easy to find. The ride lasted for about a hour down a trail in one of National Forest areas. The horses were easy to ride and were great for a beginner family.

We had a 1 hour trail ride and just loved it! The horses were just fantastic, my saddle was so comfortable, our guides were great. What a great time.

The weather was perfect and what a better way to spend the day other than riding thru the forest on a beautiful horse with my husband! The staff was very nice and it was a great facility! The horses seemed to be very well cared for! Since the land was originally swamp land, we rode thru several places covered in... More

My wife surprised me on my B-Day with a horse ride. It was a great time. The stables were clean and well maintained. Our horses were in great shape and were friendly. Jackie our guild was very nice and answered all our questions. The horses didn't try to get back to the barn and responded to my commands. This was... More

My boyfriend absolutely LOVES horses. I, on the other hand am afraid of them. I freaked out each time my horse jerked his head up to get the flies out of his face. In spite of this, the staff were extremely kind and patient with me. I was actually able to calm down and enjoy myself. We came a little... More
