Riding horses is unfamiliar territory for our family. We were up in Tahoe for a baseball tournament and decided to experience something new as a family. The Zephyr Cove staff was awesome from Louise at reservations to Tucker, our guide. We arrived and were greeted by friendly staff. We were introduce to our horses as we mounted them. The staff...

Its not their specialty, but they took our three girls under 6 on a short trail and they loved it! My three year old is still talking about it a year later. The guides were great, and everyone was wonderful. Cant wait to go back!

We hosted our bi-annual family reunion at Lake Tahoe. Several chose horseback riding and were very pleased with the experience at Zephyr Cove. Beautiful tarrain and views, very peaceful!

Did a 2-hour ride (ended up being more like 2.5 hours) and it was fantastic! Views are amazing, and the forest is so peaceful and beautiful. The challenging terrain was well handled by the lovely horses, who are mostly retired rodeo kids' horses, according to our guide Lexi. Lexi was very friendly, knew the area extremely well (she's been working... More

The office is staffed which means when you call for information or reservations, you get someone. Not always a given at a riding stable. I would make a reservation in July/August for sure.This stable is located in the pines so it is a little shaded. It has a restroom, a little rustic, but it's the old west. There are lots... More

My family (wife and two daughters ages 10 and 8) and I took and hour long ride at Zephyr Cove. We chose it due its relative proximity to our hotel and the Lake. We had gone horseback rising twice before. Phone reservations were good. The woman answering the phone was very nice. We were able to adjust our reservation to... More

We have been here few years ago and then again now, my daughter grew up since then but still loves the horses. This is a great experience for any child, also for us - adults!

They get you out onto the trail quickly and the scenery is beautiful through some rough terrain. The view from the bluff area is one of the best in Tahoe. Horses are gentle and good for beginners.

We were able to ride the same day we called. Everyone was very friendly and the tour guide (Waco) answered any questions we had about the area. The horses were very easy to ride. The view at the top is beautiful! If you have a camera, the tour guide will take a picture of your group. We didn't do a... More

Views were amazing. Horses were easy to handle and very well behaved. Our guide was very nice and pleasant. We requested a guide that could tell us more about the area, history, and plants. He did an average job here, but I think they could make this tour more amazing if they had their guides learn more about the area,... More
