it was ok

The staff was nice. Horses were a little stubborn. Overall the ride was okay. The paths were steep in places which could be unnerving to some.

Absolutely some of the most horrible looking horses I have even seen. They are scrawny and several have open saddle wounds and they were still going to use them. I am completely appalled at the conditions of these poor animals. We have put in a call to animal control. I asked for a refund and I was told that they... More

We arrived on time for our scheduled ride. We waited about 20-30 min. before hearing they were running behind. An hour later than scheduled we got to mount our horses. The first of us sat in the hot sun on for another 30 minutes so they could mount 2 other groups with us. Children were separated from parents to be... More

My daughter and I bought a groupon for a 1 hour ride and had a very nice time. The guide brought us on the trails and was very good about taking care of us. The horses were all very well behaved and walked the trails with ease. We were very impressed so we went back with 3 other ladies for... More

When we got to the stables the area was not well kept. There was horse - poo even in the parking lot. We walked into the office and it smells like horse poo and was dirty. Then the kids were told to get A helmet out of A wagon. All of the helmets were either broken or filthy. The horses... More

We are sorry to hear about your experience. This is a horse stable, which in turn means horse poo. Our horses can freely go from their 100+ acre pasture at night to the drive way. We also ride our personal horses from the pasture (100+ acres) over here to ride and they poo in the drive way sometimes. Our horses... More

This was our first time horseback riding as a family. Our guide was Kelly and she was great! She was helpful and friendly and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and its history. We had such a great time we decided to go again!!

My family and I went on a two hour Horseback riding tour and we loved every minute of it. This was our first time as a family doing anything like this and we have said we are going to do it every chance we can. Kelly was our trail guide and she was awesome and very knowledgeable.

I've gone horseback riding to several stables in the area. This is my least favorite. I took my 11 year old daughter and she was placed at the front of the group, while I was second to last. Very unsettling for a parent. The guides horse bucked her off before we even started out. Very unsettling for anyone not experienced... More

All of the children of any and all groups are placed up front. We place each parent in the order of their reservation and/or the horse they are placed on. Each horse has a spot in line. The guides horse did not buck them off. We do NOT buy a horse that we cannot ride and allow in the line.... More
