The self guided trail ride was amazing. Our horses were great, the staff was friendly, there was no up-selling! The view at the top of the trail was gorgeous! We would definitely go back!

Loved both horseback ride and zip lines. I am more experienced with horses and my husband more experienced with zip lines but we both enjoyed each activity. Trail rides are not scary at all and much more fun than a butt to trail ride on flat land. In response to other reviewers ... No, the horses aren't going to want... More

We got there and they got us on the horses right away, which was awesome because we beat the heat right off the bat! The horses we were on were great, listened well. One of us is a beginner and the other is experienced, an everyday-rider back home, and was put on Chester. She was looking forward to taking pictures... More

We took the kids horse back riding on the unguided tour and loved it. I have had horses my entire life but once I had kids we had to sell them. So it was nice to be able to share that with my kids. I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old and it was perfect. You... More

Our family has been going here for over 6 years, twice a year. The staff has always been helpful and kind. The horses are very well trained and taken care of. The views are amazing. I always get compliments from our friends on the pictures. I would highly recommend them to anyone. It's a family tradition for us.

My grandkids were not old enough to go horse back riding, even the guided ride. A person has to be at least 6 years old. So we were able to go on a carriage ride. It was fun. The horse that took us was named Marie. Marie did a great job taking us through water and all. She stopped when... More

Our family of five including 6, 10, and 13 year old children had a wonderful time here riding and zipping. We were a bit apprehensive given the fact that none of us are riders but we were given a thorough orientation and the horses were matched appropriately for our abilities. The ride brought us through a beautiful forest to a... More

We loved our experience here! My group of six couples had a great time on the unguided horse trail as well as the zipline trail. The staff was professional, helpful, and genuinely concerned about the experiences of their guests. Even though the trail was unguided, we regularly checked on in case we ran into trouble. The horses were reliable and... More
