The Lord sends rains to the rich and the poor, the just and the unjust. We have had a winter of much snow and ice, and an early spring complete with plenty of rain showers. And where there's rain in the mountains... There's going go be mud. Apologies go out to anyone who is offended because of mud in the... More

First of all I have never written a review but feel compelled to after our exeorience. My husband and I, after lots of research chose this stable to take our kids for their first real riding experience. They are 11 and 9 and had been on horses before but never really been on a ride. It had been years since... More

My family and I went to these stables they take good care of the horses. The trails are not maintained as well as some other trail rides in the area... steping over fallen trees and the mud was about a foot deep in some places... the mountains were at a steep incline at most parts... there are some flat spots...

We don't do much riding but this place seemed great! Our guide was really nice, the horses were well behaved. I was with a 6 and 9 year old and they begged me to go back. Again, we don't ride but the kids loved it. Its definitely guided - which made me a little because the open fields were calling... More

I priced a few horseback riding experiences and chose these guys. We made reservations and they said no problem if we need to change them. When we got there and met Ms Rhonda and Mr Josh, I knew we were in for a great time. Josh was our guide that day and he was very knowledgeable and fun to ride... More

The was my daughters' and husband's first horseback riding experience..and it had been several years for me. The guide was super friendly, knew the area well, and kept my youngest close to make sure she was comfortable the whole time. She even asked if she wanted to trot (she didn' t) and made sure her horse stayed slow through some... More

After researching area stables, I decided to make an appointment for an hours ride. Had not ridden in years, so I approached it with a bit of anxiety though some of this was relieved when I called to make the appointment and talked with one of the guides. The horses all seem healthy and content though in just a bit... More

We enjoyed the ride but our lady guide was a bit 'whip happy' with her "lazy" mare. She was forever kicking the mare on and using her reins as a whip. Bullied animals turn off to such abuse, and it is abuse. The mare went no faster when the lady stopped her nagging, so I'm guessing the rider needs a... More
