We've come with kids, the owners are very friendly - this is an Inn as well, but even if you are coming just for a ride, they welcome you in, treat you with nice cup of tea or hot cocoa and cookies. Horses are sweet - and the ride takes you for a nice one hour ride down the river... More

Great trail ride. Has to be one of the better ones in this area. Beautiful views going out and coming back in. The help at the stable couldn't have done a better job. My wife and I could not believe how the ride was. The fields, walking in the woods with the Saco near by, and the view of The... More

I booked a private sleigh ride for my boyfriend and I to celebrate his birthday... The ride was pretty, the staff were friendly but the bottom line is that it cost us $120 for a 30 minute ride. In fairness, this did include a $20 "romance package" consisting of a few chocolates and small serving of champagne but overall, I... More

The horseback tour of the farm was fantastic. The views of the Mountains are like no other in the area. The farm is beautiful with a great trail ride. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful time on our private sleigh ride through the snow covered paths at the Farm by the River. They take you down by the Saco River either by one horse drawn carriage or a pair of horses pulling your group. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

A group of six family members did the 45 minute big red sleigh ride yesterday. The weather was less than ideal which is not the owners fault, but our total ride was less than 20 minutes around the property and not the 45 minute ride that was advertised. We were told to arrive 30 minutes prior to our departure time... More

We had a GREAT time! The carriage was very comfortable. Bob the horse made it a smooth ride. The scenery was amazing. The driver was very friendly. We enjoyed the stories. We could tell how passionate the humans were for their animal friends. Highly recommended!!!

Hard to tell about dislikes. The wranglers were of the best. A group of women I understand handle all those horses and they are amazing. They treat them very, very well. Negative, I would really love to be able to run the horses for just a bit during the ride. I know my horse wanted to as well!
