You definitely want to call ahead and not just show up! We called the night before and was able to get an early spot the next day. The owner was not very welcoming and ignored us when we first showed up that am. She did lighten up somewhat after taking our money and seeing we called ahead for an appt.... More

Sadly the Branson area only has 2 places left to rent horses for guided trail rides. We have been to both and Bear Creek Trail Rides is by far our favorite. The scenery is so much better and you truly get a full hour. Horses are well behaved. Make sure you call to make reservations. They limit the number of... More

Good shady ride despite the heat. Staff was friendly. Manager is blunt and to the point which some may take the wrong way. We liked her.

While the manager was not outwardly crabby (to me) as others have mentioned, she sort of seemed like she could care less if we were there to the point of even being bothered by our presence. There was certainly no fanfare or built up excitement about the pending ride. I'm not looking for a Broadway production, but some introduction to... More

I found an ad for family horse rides and thought this would be the perfect opportunity for my family- four kids, ages 8-15. At $25 per person it seemed like an affordable option for the six of us. I searched the internet and was only able to find their facebook page... Which apparently has incorrect information that they cannot change...... More

My family and I enjoyed this trail ride a lot. We've been on others and this one ranks up there. First, the location is right off 65 and not easy to see. Hidden roadway, right off the highway. Also, cash only. The ride was great and our guide Mike was very informative and patient with my family. Trails are scenic,... More

The location and trail is undeniably ideal, but the management is lacking in making customers feel welcome and seeing that they are satisfied. Expect to get on your horse, travel nose to tail, stay on the trail, not stop for pictures, and get off at the end of your hour. I think the guides would like to have more leeway,... More

The trail ride was ok, the main lady seemed very stressed about having 16 people on our ride and the next. She wasn't personable and at the end I asked for a pic to remember my boyfriends FIRST horse back ride and she said no she was too busy. Bad ending to a boring trail. The two young men working...

Terrific staff and patient with the younger riders. Took the one hour trail ride. Trails covered most beautiful scenery, up and down hills and across the creek. We could ride every day with them. A must visit!

This was our daughters 1st trail ride and they loved it! The horses are very well kept and sweet. The girls tour guide was Deborah and she too was very knowledgeable and friendly. Scenic trail and a great Christmas Eve sight. We will be back!
