The owner is very friendly and so is the staff. I wanted to go horse back riding for my birthday with my two kids (5 & 8) my sister and her son joined us. The stables were easy to find and when I told them it was my birthday they painted the horse for me. We had the best afternoon.... More

My daughter and I took a 1 hour trail ride which Jeanne led. She gave us interesting info as we went along, was very easy-going, the ride was beautiful and we learned a lot about the island. Price was reasonable too (cash/check only!). I would recommend!

Wow! We just finished a trail ride. It was an amazing experience. The ride was beautiful. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. My daughter was nervous at first, and they made her comfortable and put her mind at ease. She ended up loving it!!!!! We highly recommend this place!

Best experience of my life. The o'toole family could not have been more accommodating. If you are visiting peaks island you are missing out if you don't check it out.

This establishment misrepresented its services for trail rides. My husband and I are experienced riders. When we travel across the U.S., we try to find a stable that offers trail rides for adults. We have had wonderful experiences across the nation, including in Alaska, Hawaii, California, Tennessee, Florida, etc. Since this establishment's website had a heavy focus on children's actives...
