Drove three hours to come check this place out. The website doesn't say anything about seasonal hours. Signs posted on the door saying they open at 11. However at 1:30 pm the doors were locked tight and no one was around. Would have been nice to know before driving all the way down there they weren't even going to be... More

Awesome riding stable. Seven year old rode by himself. Five year old rode double. Took a 30 min ride but should have taken the hour ride.

My wife, 4 year old grandson, and I took the 1 hour ride and we really enjoyed it. The wife and grandson were paired up on one horse while I had my own horse. The horses were cooperative, the trails scenic and interesting, and the guide was very knowledgeable. While we don't ride horses a lot, this was the best... More

My family and I enjoyed the hour long experience with Jesse James. The horses were well behaved (as horses go anyway) and easy to handle. Our die took us through a small section of the woods and into a large field. Guide was friendly and took good care of us when mounting and dismounting. The kids loved the ride! Only... More

I had been here 20 years ago and was excited to bring my son back here. It was just as I remembered it. Great horses, wonderful trails and awesome trail guides. we had other plans for our week here, but every morning my son asks to go riding at Jessie James. We have ridden 3 times this week and are...

The guide was so nice and very helpful - the horses were perfectly matched for their riding skills and the price was extremely fair. Good ride - nice scenery - nice trail - friendly people. We are looking forward to... More

My granddaughter and I took the half hour ride for a very reasonable cost. Comet and AJ were very well behaved horses and the wrangler was very patient with our mounting and dismounting. You do not have to be a seasoned rider to ride here. My granddaughter loved riding on something larger than a pony and I was just pleased... More

We took our girls 11 and 8 y/o to ride for an hour and ending going ourselves. Our real cowboy guide is a true horseman in every sense of the word. If you love to ride, ask for Travez. He was so good with the kids on the horses and full of knowledge about all 50+ horses and the trails.... More

Our guide was friendly, the horses tame, the scenery was lovely (crossed paths with a young deer), and very reasonably priced!
