Ride shorter than posted

The horses were well behaved which is important when you only ride every 10 years or so. We got to do some trotting and walking keeping the ride interesting. People who work... read more

We are not frequent horseback riders but over the years we have gone to Kurtz Corral several times and have always enjoyed it. Compared to other places we have ridden, they are safety oriented with professional education before you ride. They have options for pony rides for the young kids and various ride options for older kids and adults. They... More

My family (husband and two teenage girls) loved Kurtz Corral. From check-in to check-out, our visit was enjoyable. We got to the corral early as recommended and got right on our horses. Jordan was our guide, and he was great! We would go back in a heart beat!

The horses were well behaved which is important when you only ride every 10 years or so. We got to do some trotting and walking keeping the ride interesting. People who work there extremely pleasant and helpful. My husband and I were surprise that the ride only lasted 45 minutes instead of the time listed as 1 hour. Like to... More

I rode this weekend and I was pleasantly surprised with the welfare of the horses. They weren't tied up and miserable and some of the horses not on the ride casually hung out in the arena and looked on. The owner genuinely loves his horses and it's so nice to see! It would have been nice to go a little... More

I have been riding at Kurtz Corral every year for the past 15 years. It is an "absolute must" Door County tradition. The horses are extremely well cared for at this stable and it is very obvious that they are loved and well maintained. The staff is kind, friendly and knowledgable. I have brought many beginner riders with me and... More

The corral does not take reservation and I was a little concerned about wait time and horses being available. We went early as the owner suggested - getting there about 9. There were three people there getting ready to ride. They checked us in and then we saw a video of exactly how to handle the horses (I have never... More

Kurtz was a great place to go on a trail ride. The horses seemed very well looked after. The equipment, such as helmets, also seemed very clean and not old. On these kind of trail rides you often wonder if the horses are so used to doing the routes that you really don't need to do anything to actually "ride"... More

I enjoy riding horses and signed up for the 2 hour ride. I'd never had the opportunity to ride a gaited horse so asked for Chica in advance. Chica did not disappoint. She was a smooth ride and wanted to race which I enjoyed. Had perfect weather in late September for the ride and things weren't too busy during the... More

My husband and I have been talking about going horseback riding for the past 3 years. We finally decided to go for our Anniversary. On our way up to Sturgeon Bay from Green Bay we ran out of gas. At 1:45 I called and let them know we were coming. I was told that we had to be there by... More
