Nice trail ride but wish it was a little longer. Also wish we could have had a little history lesson about Jesse James or something.

I called to see how late they were open and the response (3 times) was "you have to buy your tickets by 6pm" That was the only response I got to, when do you close, how late will you be open, and as long as I buy my tickets by 6 I am good, but how long do we have... More

We reserved our ride for 5:00 pm and the ride began on time. Our guide was very friendly, entertaining, and knowledgeable of the local area. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery as our ride went through fields, woods, and up & down hills. The horses were gentle and friendly. We will definitely ride with this stable again.

This ride wasn't too bad. The horses didn't seem to be overly well cared for and some had some scrapes and sores. The ride itself was very pretty and horses were easy to ride. The guide was alright but did smoke during our ride which didn't bother me, but might to others. This was not a "professional" riding stable but... More

My husband and I took 2 of our g-dtrs to Mammoth Cave for 3 days this past Labor Day Holiday. He found these riding stables and I am SO HAPPY he did! It was about a 25 min drive from where we were staying BUT SO WORTH IT! Beautiful scenery along the way as well as the Beautiful stables. Everyone... More

The hour-long tour was nice and relaxing. The price was good and the workers were friendly. We went through the mountains and the horses were well trained.

This is a great place for people that don't ride as its just a walking tour there is no trotting or anything, they only allow walking. The trail is quite pretty. It was very muddy but that didn't bother us or the horses. Our guide Enos (sp?) was super nice. It's a basic trail ride place I think families would... More

By far, this was the highlight of our weekend vacation for my kids 9 and 6! We went on the first day and only did the 30 minute tour because our kids had never done real horseback riding, other than the 2 minute pony ride at our local zoo. Immediately after, our kids were begging to go back for the... More

Really disappointed. I should have known from the looks of it that it wasn't the best place to go horseback riding, but my daughter was so excited, so we did it. The horses do not look like they are treated well, and my daughter was very disturbed by how often we were told to hit the horses with crops or... More
