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
