Enjoyed this experience this past weekend, 10/12/13. Goodloe was a very nice, quiet man with some of the best behaved horses I could imagine. My wife and I are not experienced riders, but I felt safe the entire time. We were given instructions on how to keep our balance in the saddle along the mountainous trail. My horse, Stormy was...

We had a great time! It was beautiful when you get to the top of mountain. The kids loved the horses and they were all very well behaved. The owner was very helpful and did a great job.

This past summer 2012......The trail is very steep, horses have to walk on huge loose bolders and small rocks.....Very scary, especially coming down the mountain, feels like your gonna flip right over the horses head. My son was doubled up with me and was so uncomfortable and the guide didn't seem to care, even though my son was crying. Very... More

First of all if you had followed instructions, you and your child would have been more confortable and enjoyed the ride. Many have rode with their children and have enjoyed the ride. As you were instructed to do ,one has to use their legs to balance and push their body away from the child to prevent from squeezing. For your... More

Our guide was such an incredibly nice and gentle man. His horses were the same, very gentle, and incredibly obedient and intelligient. The only reason I did not give this five stars is at times it was a little scary going up or down some parts of the mountain. There was no flat terrain to trot the horses, it was... More

Myself, my wife, and 2 children ages 7 and 10 visited Goodlow and his horses this past week. Steep trails, and a beautiful vista view at the top. My kids loved it, and my wife and I enjoyed ourselves too. The price is very reasonable, considering what other places charge, for basically the same experience.

I have not had time to respond to your review until now but I remember you well, You were given instructions just like everyone else . but when you are timid, instructions sometime go out the other ear. The horses evidently know what they are doing even when the rider doesn't. Most of my trail is wide enough for a... More
