Weather was fab, company great, horses sweet. Trek was a bit boring but that wasn't anything other than the surroundings, nothing to do with David. Stopped too long at the lake (killing time) would rather spend the time riding. I would recommend this especially if a beginner or nervous. The horses are well behaved. No complaints. David was a great... More

Don't let the name scare you. The healthy, happy horses don't seem to have a vendetta against the riders. This is a hidden gem here in the Metroplex and it's just down the road from DFW Airport and Grapevine. The guide is attentive (thank you Dave) and the guide takes into consideration the experience level of the riders. As it... More

I recently went to Dallas with work and had a day to spare so went trail riding. The area is lovely and the horses were well cared for, catered for all types of riding ability and were about 15-16 hands in size so manageable. David was friendly and supportive, I had never ridden western style riding so he was clear... More

Myself and my 21 year old daughter went on the Grapevine trail ride with Dave back in June 2013. We are riders and were very impressed with the whole experience. Dave was a great guy and told us many interesting stories. The horses were really well behaved. He was so informative and made the ride what it was. The trail... More

Dave was a generous host and an entertaining guide. My horse, Chip, was safe and steady, yet responsive to a light touch. The countryside was lovely and there were a few opportunities to trot or go slightly faster if you wanted. All round a good introduction to Texas and Western riding, especially for novice riders. Good value at USD 80... More

This was such an enjoyable ride for some novice horse back riders. Dave took his time training us on everything we needed to know. He fit us each with a beautiful horse. We forgot our water and Dave was quick to point us to his fridge to each grab one. He knows the trails very well (as do the horses),... More

For a couple of relaxing hours, even for those who have never been on a horse, try a trail ride around Lake Grapevine with David and Jeff. They know how to make all the riders comfortable in the saddle while providing riding hints and dialogues about the area.
