Took grandkids by here for the zip line and horseback ride. This may be a smaller place but it definitely is as much fun as the other ones and no long wait lines and the owners are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. The kids said the horseback ride , which you do without a guide was... More

The people were very nice and treated us very well. It was a gift to ride that day. The views were incredible. The horses are well behaved. The only problem was that the "horse guy" was trying to train new lead horses and mine was one that was used to following while my daughter's was used to leading. He had... More

My 11 year old daughter who absolutely LOVES horses had been begging us to take her there to ride since we visited last summer, so we finally relented. We knew from our last trip that they were closed on Sundays because they are a Christian run business, which we can totally appreciate since we are as well. However from the... More

My husband and I did the unguided horse tour and the 3 zip line course. Both were AWESOME!!! The views were breathtaking and the people were awesome!! I would defiantly do this again and would recommend this to anyone who hasn't zip lined before or who just wants to ride alone in the mountains!!

The whole reason we chose this stable over many others in the area was because they advertised as unguided. We had ridden by ourselves at other places and liked it much better than riding with a guided tour, so we were excited to do it again. It was our 15th wedding anniversary and we wanted to ride alone in the... More

This was the first zipline trip for my daughters 8, 10. We all had a great time and the guides were amazing. It is such a wonderful view. The staff is super friendly. I highly recommend this stop!

Had a great time with my wife riding Strawberry (the horses name). She rode a horse named Leonard who was also well trained. Saw some beautiful sights and was very impressed with the behavior of the horses. The staff was extremely friendly.

We went horseback riding and zip lining today at Next To Heaven. The staff was friendly and very safety conscious. Our zip line guides, Taylor and Dave, were entertaining and very knowledgable. The view is beautiful and it was nice to have just our family on the horseback riding trail. My daughter led the way because she is an experienced... More
