Our family had a nice trail ride with Alfredo as our guide. Our kids, ages 6 and 9 loved it! Alfredo kept a very close eye on the kids, especially our 6-year old who had never ridden before. Both he and Astrid were concerned for the kids' safety and made sure that they were comfortable on their horses before heading... More

Cute little farm, a bit hard to find with Google Maps but eventually we did! Didn't make reservations for horseback riding so we couldn't ride, but the owners were nice enough to let our 10 year old ride on Magic a few times around the corral. Look forward to visiting again.

Alfredo and his beautiful family cater to small groups. Our ride consisted of my son, myself, Alfredo, his young daughter and an apprentice guide bringing up the rear. All were knowledgeable about the scenery. We were lucky enough to ride when the rhododendrons were blooming. The trails were very lush and we were lucky enough to see a wild turkey!... More

It far exceeded any and all of our expectations. Alfredo, Astrid, their family and staff made us feel so welcomed! The owners are amazing, friendly, kind people. Not only do they have spectacular trails with beautiful mountain views but we were privileged to be able to stay at one of their spotlessly clean cabins called "The Nut House". The cabins... More

Our trail ride up the mountain was everything we hoped it would be. Our horses were very trustworthy and calm; our guide, Morgan, was delightful, intelligent and well informed on everything from horses to wild flowers! Alfredo, the owner of the farm, was very thoughtful and competent as he decided exactly which horse would be assigned to each of us.... More

The owner Alfredo and his guide, Morgan, gave my two friends and myself an outstanding ride in beautiful country on a gorgeous day. The whole stable area was in excellent condition and the horses were well cared for. Two of us have had some experience riding and one had only been on a horse a couple of times. Alfredo and...

This morning two friends and I went for a trail ride at VC Farms. Alfredo, the owner, met us as we drove up. He impressed us right away with his calm manner, concern for our safety and well kept-up horses and stables. He and his helper, Morgan, gave us individual attention checking and adjusting our helmets, getting us on our... More

The family was very caring and hospitable. Horses were good quality and well behaved. Facilities were very good condition. Authentic mountain terrain which made ride challenging but very good.
