I took my 9 year old for her first ever real horseback ride on June 7, 2015. She had a wonderful time and so did I. We went on for an hour, having the chance to work with the horses, direct them to the proper paths, and away from branches and leaves. The instructions Julie (I think that was her... More

Sue and her horses ensure that you enjoy trail rides or sleigh Ride. Sue makes sure her guests are happy. In the winter, for the sleigh rides, you can enjoy hot cocoa and s'mores before and after your ride

I was going to bring my two and a half year old grandson on a sleigh ride and bought a voucher from Amazon local. I have tried calling the ranch and got the message that it's best to do everything thru email. I have tried contacting them three times with absolutely no response to my emails. I mistakenly told them... More

went for a "romantic" sleigh ride purchased on groupon. Basically a cart ride while the driver talked the entire time. I had pictured a comfortable seat to sit with my sweetie and ride through the forest. It was two wooden benches driving up and down her driveway while she talked...nothing romantic about that. The "hot chocolate" was watered down Swiss... More

My wife and I went for a private sleigh ride. (Not enough snow so it was a wagon) Still very fun. The woman who took us was very nice, and informative. telling us about the ranch and about the local towns. There was a fire to keep us warm while we waited. Hot chocolate and smores too. I am definitely... More

There was a bonfire, s'more makings, hot chocolate and horses to visit while we waited for our sleigh/wagon ride (there was no snow so we needed wheels!).

I wish i could rate this place 0 stars. Its a pity I have to rate it so low as I love animals and admire people who devote their lives to rescue and care for them. However, I hope that the employees at this ranch treat horses better than they treat their customers. I spent an hour and a half... More

My wife, daughter and son went riding this past weekend and the owner was very friendly and her assistants made it fun for my son who was riding for his first time. My daughter is an accomplished equestrian and she enjoyed spending time "just plodding along" as some bitter person wrote. I don't know what people expect out of a... More

My husband and I bought a groupon for a horse drawn sleigh ride. We drove all the way there from Boston for this little venture. When we arrived, there were other folks milling around waiting for direction from the woman leading the venture. She started handing out helmets, lined everyone up, and started putting people on horses. A few other... More

We went out for the "awesome 1 hour trail ride". Turns out it was neither awesome nor 1 hour. This is a ride suitable for first-time riders since the the horses simply plod along a muddy, not very scenic path along power lines and through some woods. Actual ridding time was barely 40 minutes; another ten minutes was spent sitting... More
