We took a two hour trail ride with Paul, who definitely lives up to the praise he has received in other reviews. Paul kept the ride in line with our experience, which was very little. He taught us more about being around horses and the Adirondacks as we made our way through the peaceful woods. The horses were all well... More

The two hour trail ride was excellent with our guide Paul Fucito. He made the ride entertaining and helped us understand our horses better. Everybody at Circle B Ranch was friendly and nice. I would recommned this for anyone who loves animals and the outdoors.

My husband brought me to Circle B Ranch for a ride.It was mid-October and the views were breathtaking. Our trail guide was Paul and he really knew his way around the backwoods. Our horses were very beautiful and well behaved. This was important as my husband is not really a horseman. Paul was very knowledgeable and always made sure we... More

My girlfriend and I were both first time riders and couldn't have asked for a better experience ! Not only were the views and trails stunning but we had great horses and an awesome guide! I would highly recommend Paul, we learned so much from him. He was extremely patient, understanding and made sure we were comfortable the whole way!

Myself and my husband booked the 2 hour private trail ride. We have only ridden a couple of times before but felt completely safe on the horses chosen for us. You can choose to wear a helmet if you prefer although I think for children this is mandatory. The ride was very scenic and peaceful through woods. I would recommend... More

It was my kids' first time on horseback and our guide, JP, was so good. He was so patient and cheerful while he constantly hopped off his horse to stuff their feet back into their stirrups. It was a highlight of our time in the Adirondacks.
