This was the only place we could find in the area that would allow us to take the horses into more than a walk. Our kids were not interested in a trail walk, so this was the only place that we wanted to visit. It did not disappoint. While the great majority of time was spent walking on a trail,... More

This was our first visit and we were very happy to have visited. Everyone here is down to earth which we seek out. You are greeted by a gentleman who will get you started by showing a 5-10 minute film which talks about how to mount and ride your horse as well as safety considerations. After this you are out...

This place was perfect. they start out with an instructional video then they saddle you Up on your horse. I was able to ask for a slow-moving horse since I was a little nervous. The ride is an hour and it's the perfect amount of terrain and a little rocky trail so you get the feel of riding the horse... More

This was our third year to ride at this horse riding stable. The trails are excellent through the woods. The horses are treated exceptionally well and the guides are great! Out 8 year-old grand daughter rode for the first time and had a great experience. We did a private ride that costs a little more but is well worth it.... More

I called them around 8:50 in the morning even though it said they open at 9 am. A friendly older man answered the phone. He answered all my questions. We showed up about 25 minutes early for our ride. My boys never rode before and had a blast! The owner is very personable and made both my boys feel comfortable... More

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.

Called circle B and made a reservation for 6 of us. We showed and had to watch the mandatory safety video. Right after that we all got on the horses and went for a nice leisurely ride through the woods. Very nice, quiet and scenic. Some uphill and downhill trails. 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
