The cabin was large and clean. Quite out-dated but adequate. The remote for the TV never worked. We reported it and followed instructions given but it just didn't work. The rides were shut down due to rain so we didn't get to experience them. They looked like fun. The horse back riding was a hit. The price was great and... More

We stopped here on 06/16/15 on our way to Kentucky Kingdom. Three of our party of five took the 1 hour horseback riding tour. The lady behind the counter who sells the tickets did seem a little grouchy (as others have noted here) but I guess thats just her "way". After we bought the tickets we all 5 walked down... More

My parents, husband, and I just took a weekend trip to Cave City, mainly to tour Mammoth Cave. Aside from the cave, though, there isn't a ton to do in the vicinity that isn't specifically kid-oriented and/or super cheesy. So, we decided to play a round of putt-putt on Saturday evening, and Jesse James' course looked good from the road.... More

Great place to stop when traveling. Great horse riding with excellent guide, absolutely beautiful scenery. We went through wooded trails, and open plains, family had a ball. We also went on their short cave tour but the best thing going is their alpine coaster. They have package deals so it was very affordable. Cost around $3.50 to ride up the... More

We got there about 11:15 and were able to get on the 12 pm tour/ride. It gave us time to grab a quick lunch and get sunscreen on the kids. The lady selling tickets told us to get to the stables 15 min early but the guides didn't acknowledge us until exactly 12 o'clock. No need to rush. The guides... More

Took family of four. All the horses looked over-ridden, some looked crippled yet were still saddled up! My daughter said as we were waiting for our start time...I hope I don't get that one or that one...and I said I hope NO ONE gets them because they look hurt! (No one was put on either.) However, all of the horses... More

My 8 year old and husband did the one hour ride. They absolutely loved it and my son went on about it for an hour afterwards! Very reasonable prices and very nice staff! If it was a little warmer we would've liked to do more, so we will be back!
