Excellent for families with younger children. Or first time riders. Great trail guides and easy on off horses with raised platform. Nice length of trail that is very level and comfortable to ride. Caring and friendly staff that are good with kids. Horses well trained but not so slow it feels mechanical. This was the first time riding for my... More

We came over today we had a group of 8 of us. The trail guides were amazing. They took the time to answer questions and made sure we were all comfortable. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking toride in the area.

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

My son and I have had the pleasure of riding at the Shenandoah Riding Center for at least 8 years. In fact, my son learned to ride there. New owners have recently assumed the operation of the center. 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.

My grown daughters and I spent the weekend in Galena and decided to make the beginner's ride one of our activities. I have to say we all loved it and are planning to make it a yearly event. The horses are beautiful and each with their own personality. We're still talking about how much fun it was!

The horses were wonderful, the guides were great. The scenery is lush and beautiful. Make sure you have actually had previous riding experience if you go on the intermediate trail ride.

Kudos to the staff at the Shanendoah Riding Center! My granddaughters, age 12 & 9, started with a lesson where they were taught basic riding skills, followed by a trail ride. The instructors and trail guides were excellent in their teaching and also closely monitored the girls throughout the ride. We had a wonderful time and safe riding experience on... More

My wife and I went up for a 1hour beginner ride on a Friday Morning. We were promptly greeted and went out to the area to meet our guide/trainer and our Horses Flea and Otis. Mary was our guide and helped us saddle up and get on the trail. She was very personable and listened to what our skill levels... More

I went on a canter trail ride for the first time and I have to say it was absolutely amazing. The views were gorgeous and i got treated very nicely. I had a blast and it was an overall great experience. I would go on another trail ride any day. I rode Rick and he was a great listener and... More
