Took my son for his first horseback ride. He had a great experience. Staff was friendly, fun and patient. Kudos to our leader Jessica for her helpful pointers. Trail goes by the lodge and then back into a wooded area. Recommend sunscreen, bug spray and pants. Pace is slow which is good for first timers and those not comfortable on... More

Reasonably priced. On our honeymoon and this was my first time riding a horse. The horses were well trained and the guides dogs a great job as well. Cute little petting area. Planning on bringing our 3 kids back sometime.

Our party of four children and five adults enjoyed a trail ride here last weekend. The staff was very helpful and careful to fit each person with the proper horse. Two younger children went on the pony ride and had fun feeding the animals. This is a low key operation without a lot of bells and whistles, but everyone in... More

Just walking around this place was a bad experience. People were riding horses without helmets which is a big safety issue. Also, these animals looked as if no one had cleaned them or looked after them. Most of the horses were lame or injured from overgrown hooves. The ponies for the pony rides looked as if they were brought in... More

Great place to go for kids and adults. Different events for every holiday. Haunted hayrides for Halloween are great. carriage rides for valentines day and Christmas. they even have a small petting zoo. I go and feed the animals whenever I stay at the grand Geneva resort.

My husband and I took a trail ride and it was very relaxing. The guide was wonderful, even when the horse bolted because something scared it. My husband had not been on a horse and of course his horse is the one who bolted. He managed to remain calm and the guide was very helpful.

The stables were a lot of fun! They even had a few other barn animals that you could pet. The countryside and trail itself was picturesque and very peaceful. Even saw a flock of wild turkeys in the background. The horses were beautiful! The price was average. The only thing I felt that it was a bit rushed at the... More

It could have been more fun. We felt rushed and the ride felt short -45 minutes all together and half of it was walking by the hotel. The horses were sleepy (I guess that means not dangerous for beginners) and the guides were bored. I was bored! Mosquitoes were very bad--wear long pants and bring bug spray. It was expensive...

Very dangerous place. I was severely injured here. They do not offer any safety equipment. Would never take my family here again.
