None of us are experienced riders, and this is first time either of my kids were on a horse outside a carnival ride. They understood the kids' apprehension and guided both of their horses. The horses are very calm & easy to handle.

Great value for the price. An hour of riding for 22 dollars. Ride was on side of mountain so that's an added bonus. Great experience.

My husband and I booked a 4-hour ride through David (owner) and it was surprisingly easy, as it was about as non-stressful as you could get. On our ride, our guide was Bubba - a lovely, funny, intelligent and conscientious young man. We had some trail laughs, a lot of eduction, and good old fun too. We highly recommend this... More

Great group of people. Our guide, Junie, was so patient and pleasant. The horses were fabulous and quirky. It was the first time for our kids and it was a really great experience. Highly recommend!

We went on the one hour ride, and we all loved it. We are all full sized adults that are not used to riding horses and we had a great time. The horses were very gentle and very very well trained, they knew what they were doing and where they were going even though we did not. Our trail guide... More

I called earlier in the week and had a reservation for 1pm. I wasn't sure how to find the stables but I stopped in at the building near the road and they pointed us in the right direction. We had a great time on the 1 hour ride. It was the perfect length of time. We (my wife and 3... More

Although we never connected directly to make a reservation prior to arriving, our multiple phone messages secured our ride time. We were lucky to be the only two riders and a had great up close and personal experience with Dave and our guide. We learned a lot about the history of the area. The horses were great, the scenery so... More

The trails were very closed in, very hilly, very smelly from horse manure and mud and very hot. The trails were quite muddy so the horses kept slipping. I was afraid I was going to fall off. We have paid to horseback ride in several states and I would say this was our least favorite.
