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... read 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

We have been here several times now. My girls are 12, 10 and 8 years old. The rides are nice. This last year we found a discount online, but were unable to get to the link. The person honored it anyway. The only thing is this past time we were riding with a few people who seemed to be in... More

Good place to go if you have not ridden a horse before or just want to get on a horse, go for a slow ride and get off. Perfect if you are with kids, they take such good care of the little ones. But be careful, your kids may want to go back every weekend!

My husband and I arrived around 1:30 on a Thursday and upon entering the grounds was greeted by the owner. When we inquired about a ride he said they only... More
