Awesome experience! Donald was a wonderful guide/storyteller... attentive, amusing, and knowledgeable. Horses were great on the rocky trail up and down the mountain. My group consisted of two adults and four teens/preteens and we all agreed that it was an excellent, would-love-to-do-it-again adventure. The scenery was beautiful and our ride was even more special because it snowed (big, powdery snowflakes)... More

The ride was good; the horses were great, but the owner is a different story. Became visibly upset when reviewing our forms and saw I had marked advanced rider (I have owned, broke, and ridden horses for over 15 years) He began chastising me and stated "I would never go to somebody's establishment and put down advanced rider.....what makes you...

The 2 hour trail ride was wonderful! My 17 year old daughter had never ridden before but Donald put her at ease and she did great. Would recommend this experience to everyone...

Went for a 2 hour trail ride at this facility. It was awesome. Donald was a great guide. I'm not the most experienced rider, and before the ride, he went over several safety items that were never mentioned in my previous rides. These tips came in very handily because of the hills on the ride. The scenery on the ride... More

My wife and I had a wonderful 4 hour waterfall ride. Our horses, "Kip" and "Butch" were awesome, and are two of the most gentle and pleasant horses we have had the pleasure of riding. Donald's hospitality and storytelling made the ride even more enjoyable. The scenery was breathtaking. We hope to visit Cedar Crest Stables again.

Th.is is the fourth year I have been staying at Cedar Crest Stables and I love it. The Cottage is well furnished, very clean, and comfortable. It has a deck from which you can see the most beautiful dawns in the morning or stars at night. The trail rides are fun AND educational. Donald Romero makes a point of giving... More

We stayed here for two weeks while we were in the process of selling our house. The experience was terrible. The cottage was really a joke; it's a single wide trailer that sits on a slope, so when you sleep all the blood rushes to your head. The bed were uncomfortable and definitely not big enough for two, we ended... More

Cedar Crest Stables opened on Easter Sunday so that we could ride. Three different unrelated couples had booked for trail riding that Sunday, so we made up seven people riding that morning. Horses were prepped and ready and assigned to individual riders based on size and experience. Training was rudimentary but effective and reinforced through on-trail experience. Some had a... More
