The ride was amazing, just enough snow, not freezing, we called and they accommodated our time for the ride. The woman and girl were very friendly, spent some time telling us about the farm and the horses. We learned the history of the place. The horses are VERY well cared for, we walked through the stables and met a few... More

My husband and I booked a private sleigh ride. We weren't sure if the ride was going to take place as the wether was quite windy, however, the owners went out to check the trails to make sure they were safe for the ride! We were excited to find out that everything was A-OK. Our horse, Bob, was a big... More

My husband and I booked a "Private Carriage Ride" . Our horse was bob and driver was Sarah and the were both fantastic. The ride is full of breath taking scenery as if from a Thomas Kincaid painting. We sipped on hot chocolate and sat back under the down blanket warm and dreamy. They also offer a very affordable group... More

We were visiting North Conway last month and I've always wanted to take a sleigh ride. Weather conditions were perfect and we picked the Farm to do this. What a great time we had! Our hosts, Rick and Charlene, were just wonderful to talk to. Our horse, Charlie was fabulous, and our driver, Joanie, was so knowledgeable I can't wait... More

The horses range in size from large and slightly feisty to smaller and behaved. The ride takes you down a narrow tree lined path out to an open field, down by the river on... More

Romantic Sleigh Ride My husband and I selected the Stables for a romantic 2-person Valentine Days sleigh ride. The Stables staff was very friendly and accommodating. You can tell by the staff’s interaction with the horses, that they are loved and well cared for. Many of the horse are rescues and are very friendly. The sleigh ride winds you through... More

While I was visiting Stables at the Farm by the River, I was taken for a tour of the farm and saw all of their horses. This place is located on the West Side Road. I was very impressed by their location and the choice of the horses to ride.
