After many years not riding, we, an 88-year-old and 79-year-old, decided to try it again. From Corey's and Mary's orientations, to David and Rick's helping us to mount Oakley and Duke, and to David's guidance on the ride, we had a wonderful experience at Shenandoah Riding Center. The staff was so kind and thoughtful. We hope to return in the... More

Great beginner ride for mix of adults and kids. Most of us had never riden but our guides explained everything and ensured all went well on the ride through the trails. Our kids ranged from 12-19 and they all enjoyed the experience. Would highly recommend it!

While family was visiting I wanted to do some fun outdoors and I knew that one family member loves horseback riding. I searched online and surprisingly found this was the only riding center that held trail rides during the week in this area. I booked our ride online.......a very easy process. We were greeted, filled out waivers, then met our... More

While we enjoyed our previous experiences, the new owners have taken the center to a much greater height. Our assessment is it... More

My daughter 13 and I went on a beginners trail ride, and even though we were the only two guests they still went with us and it was so much fun, beautiful scenery plus very friendly ladies that took us on the ride. We loved it and hope to do it again.
