Dave and Jeff like to keep the rides small,so we had 3 people on my ride: a couple from Australia and myself. Dave was great to ride with because he accommedated the ride to fit the comfort level of the least experienced rider in the group. The beginner rider in our group was comfortable learning to trot so Dave gave... More

Awesome experience - Sugarman was a great horse. Horses in excellent condition and David was an extremely competent trail guide and horseman. Loved the trail - would love to do another ride when I go back.

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
