One hour was $48 per person (regardless of age). Beautiful horses and friendly staff. Love the views and relaxation of the ride, but a bit pricey for a family of 4.

My name is Del. I was really nervous because we ride up and down the hill and we were so close to the edge of the mountain which is very risky. The other thing I didnt like was that you ride the horse alone and the guide is on his own horse ahead of you. While you are riding the... More

In regard to the person who thought the trail was "risky". We are in the mountains here and have very nice and well groomed trails that are wide enough to drive on. The trail guide rides his horse and the riders are all on their horse following the guide. If this person didn't want to take the scenic mountain trail... More

Very expensive ride. The whole place stinks. The horses are well-groomed and trained. The ride up the mountain is great.

My son enjoys riding here each summer. Worth a visit for sure- the trail is serene and interesting as there are historic spots along the way. Great view of lake at top.

The horses are super friendly and calm. The guides select the horses based on your experience and overall body size, so there's nothing to worry about. The trail itself is very relaxing and meditative. In addition, there's a great view of the lake from a great height! Loved the ride; coming back next year!

The staff was wonderful. They were very caring on making sure the stirrups were at the right height for my comfort. They have a nice selection of horses, which behaved very well. Our guide Dusty, couldn't have done a better job in being friendly, and making sure everyone was ok. I enjoyed hearing about his rodeo experiences. At the end... More

We loved our trail ride, the stable, the views and our guide. We will be back on our next trip! My husband and I were in a group with two other people making the ride seem almost private. The trails are clean and clear and the horses are beautiful.

Best trail ride we've ever gone on. Beautiful trails. View of the lake. Good obedient horses. Great guide. Well organized. And when my daughters asked to do some trotting in addition to walking we were accommodated.
