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.

I found a Groupon for this stable, so that's why we went with this one as opposed to one of the dozens of others in this area. So the office area could use a little TLC, for sure, but don't let that fool you. The folks working there were super friendly and helpful. Nate was our guide and he was... More

Let me just start off by saying that I know horses pretty well, absolutely love riding, and have a lot of experience trail riding. So, I know my stuff. Well, to start off, the horses were skinny, they had food so I assume it was primarily because they are worked so hard every single day. Next, they were all kept... More

The trail we went on was pitiful, it was a walk they the back of their property, across the asphalt road and up another steep hill and then back. It was muddy and just not much scenery to it. Would not recommend it.

We were looking at the different rides and the employee suggested a moonlight ride. It appealed to me because she said we'd see the sun set by the lake. That was a complete lie !! They told us to be back at 7:45 and by the time our horses were saddled the sun was down and we rode the majority... More

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
