My roommate from college and I went for a fall trail ride and had a beautiful time. It was POURING when we got there, so we spent the 1st 30 minutes inside having a mini-lesson, then we hit the trail. Our two guides were excellent. I've been going to the Circle B since I was a child....and I'm about to... More

The owners Chris and Nancy couldn't be sweeter. Very helpful and fun. I'm not and experienced rider and they went out of the way to reassure me safety and put me at ease. Our guide Paul was just a delight. Chris also joined our ride and it was just beautiful. Thank you Circle B. Can't wait to come again.

Sara was our guide and selected a horse that was appropriate for our respective experience levels. She also ran through training and safety beforehand and talked about any and all concerns we had. Was a joy to have as a trail guide as well, and you can tell she loves what she does. Heard of the Circle B Ranch through... More

I went here yesterday and it was a very nice experience. When you go in you watch an educational video or a reminder video to some. The guys who work there are mega friendly and make sure you are safe and comfortable to ride. On the trail we stopped and talked a few times it was great to just enjoy... More

We had a wonderful time at Circle B Ranch, Myself and my 7 and 10 year old did an hour long trail ride with Paul and Cody. They were knowledgeable and patient and really put my kids at ease. The ride was a good pace through beautiful scenery and the kids just loved every minute of it. They were even... More

Great horseback trail ride facility. The horses are calm and excellent at their job. Staff is experienced and keep the customers safe. Would definitely recommend. The price is great and they have many different options in terms of duration and experience level.

The ride there was very pleasant. When we arrived we were asked to watch an instructuional video on horseback riding. It was helpful. After... More

We took our boys here for a horseback ride, ages 8 and 10. They have never ridden before so we wanted them to have a great experience and they definitely did. Everyone here is very professional and courteous. It is an experience they will never forget. We paid for an hour trail ride. They first have you watch a safety... More

Our guide was very nice, but kept stopping to give us history lessons ... We spent more time stopping than riding. Very disappointing. We will use another company next time.

We at Circle B Ranch have just read your recent TripdAdvisor review and after discussing it with your guide, we felt some explanation and clarification should be made on your experience. Safety is our number one concern for our guests. As you will remember, you purchased two 1 hour group rides with Circle B Ranch, not PRIVATE rides. There were... More

My boyfriend and I went for a trail ride for an hour and a half. The cost was very affordable. I've been riding for most of my life but my boyfriend has only been on a horse a couple of times. They paired us up with horses that were very mellow and gentle. Joe and Paul would check with us... More
