Not the best, not the worst.

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... read 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!

I do not see how this place got bad reviews. I found it to be a great experience for me and my wife that was both first time riders. I don't think the trail was as steep as others made it seem. Totally unbeatable and love they take photos at the end of you on the horses.

Four older adult members of my family (57+ in age) took a 2 hour ride with this company while staying in Branson. The horses were very fit and well fed, and we were perfectly matched with horses to suit our various riding abilities. The scenery is typical Ozarks, heavily wooded, up and down steep hills and across a beautiful stream.... More

To be honest, I haven't been to Bear Creek for about 5 years (not because it was bad, just because we're busy) but anyway, when we went, the whole family had a great time riding through the wilderness. Although my horse did wander off the trail, the employees handled it very well and we had a great time! I Would... More

We absolutely loved our two-hour trail ride. A wonderful experience with a pleasant and knowledgeable guide (I can't recall her name, but it was a young woman who clearly loved her job). The horses were healthy and well maintained, the landscape beautiful and varied and we came back from the ride rejuvenated - though if you don't ride on a... More

Horses so well maintained and healthy, staff friendly, the trail ride went through creeks, was an hour long and very reasonable, was 25.00 for an hour each.

Forget all that "Vegas" glitz, traffic jams, etc. in Branson and experience the Ozark hills, foliage and fauna at this place. Our young-lady trail master (we feel bad we never got her name) was very pleasant and a good guide. Personally I'd like to see the rougher parts of the trail smoothed out somewhat better for the horses' sake (maybe... More
