Fort Valley Ranch was an awesome place. We did the half day ride and it was so much fun. Gale our guide was excellent. She had a lot of knowledge about the plants/trees along the trail, the flowers and the history of the trail. She taught us more about horses and she was very down to earth. It was an... More

A friend and I booked a 5 night camping trip to Ft. Valley Ranch. Took our own horses. A map, and gps, and explored the mountain trails. What an awesome area! The hospitality was the best! Wonderful paddock for our horses, and icecream for us! Ft. Valley Ranch is managed by some of the nicest people on earth! I will... More

We booked at the last moment for an afternoon trail ride at Fort Valley, and it proved to be a highlight of our holiday. Josh, our guide, was really encouraging to the three of us, including our 9 year old son who had never ridden before. The paperwork was all safety focused and riding helmets were available without additional charge.... More

Our group of 17 took the 1-hour trail ride. Very nice, cool forest trail. Guides were knowledgeable and attentive. Be sure to arrive 1/2 hour in advance to complete paperwork and find a helmet.

We looked around the Luray area and decide to try Fort Valley Stables because of the mountain trails through the George Washington Forest. We chose the hour and a half ride. They asked us to be about 30 minutes early, but we probably got there about 50 minutes early. The check-in process seemed smooth, we picked our helmets, and the... More

I did not "stay" at this property so I cannot comment on accommodation. However I did ride here. I booked a half day ride for me and two other girls. I have decades of horse experience and my two friends have ridden before but have no training at all. I followed the directions from the website and found the place... More

The reason this review does not get 5 stars is because we got lost getting there. I know many do, because once we did, the exasperated girl at the desk was giving someone else directions. Hint: if people get lost a lot, you need to put a bigger sign out. We got lost because the road forks, and we just... More

We went to Fort Valley Ranch for a 1 1/2 hour walking horseback ride with our three kids ages 8, 10, and 13. In our search for a stable, we found many that won't take kids under 10 and we wouldn't do it without everyone. Fort Valley Ranch took us last minute (called at 8 am for a 10 am... More

We met some family for a few days away. The cabin we stayed in was clean enough with room for our whole family. We had a great trail ride and enjoyed some free time playing around the grounds. Bill and Laura were very accomdating and friendly.
