We went for the one hour ride, we were all beginners / first timers. The horses were easy to ride and the trail not to demanding. Next time I will ask to be grouped with the rest of my family. We were intermingled with several oyhers.

Much better than some other places I have been. The... More

Vacationed in lake George and took my kids here for an hour ride. Been to many riding facilities so I know what is good and what is bad. This is a two star because the trails were a mess. Uneven, muddy, uncleared of tree debris. Flies everywhere due to horse feces not being picked up. The guide and the owner... More

Great experience we really enjoyed our trail ride with them. I didn't feel like just a trail ride we we told to really get to know the horses and all of us (me, my wife and two teenage kids) really loved our ride.

The Circle B Ranch romantic sleigh ride was fabulous. Friendly people, beautiful scenery, comfortable carriage. Sarah was a wonderful driver, knowledgeable and friendly. Paul, who also worked there, was very friendly. I would recommend this place to all.

Stayed at Friends Lake Inn and they suggested a group sleigh ride ( we were 3 couples staying together ). Great suggestion!! We did a 6:00 pm ride and it was pleasantly snowing. Chris was great and we had so much fun!! Even though it was cold out we were all very comfortable and warm and it was fun to... More
