We took the tour with a guide who gave a great narrative of the battle. All of the guides in the party were fabulous, they were able to educate those folks with little or no riding experience in a friendly and effective way.

My sister and I have toured Gettysburg many times. This tour was my favorite. Horse back gives you a unique view of the battlefield terrain. I am 6' in my boots. So I was happy to be paired with a big horse. The smaller riders got smaller horses. Everyone got a horse appropriate for thier size and skill. The staff... More

We had a great trail ride across the historic battlefield. We went with our two nine year olds and this was their first time on a horse. They matched up the kids with the perfect mounts, gentle and very easy to handle, Spirit and Sundance. The guided tour was very informative and the audio and equipment worked great. We had... More

We have visited Gettysburg many times, this was our first battlefield horseback tour. Pam and the Hickory Hollow team provide a great outing. We did the two-hour guided battlefield tour and Rob was knowledgable and entertaining. Being on horseback provides a completely different perspective to the battle that you cannot achieve driving in your car. I called to schedule this... More

Pam was pleasant and friendly and accommodated our requests. As horse people ourselves we appreciated the excellent condition of these animals, good quality, healthy weight and hooves makes it easier to enjoy the ride without worry about our mounts. The saddles were reasonably comfortable(not always true on commercial rides) and staff attentive to everyone's fitting. The beginner riders who were... More

We did quite a bit of research before settling on Hickory Hollow for our horse tour and we are so happy we did! The experience was even better than we thought it would be! The staff was all very friendly and professional and made everyone feel right at home. We had a group of 4 people, some with a lot... More

I had to friends from China visit for a business trip. They have shown me great hospitality during my trips to China so I decided to return the favor. They said they had some riding experience, but once we arrived and prepared to mount, it was obvious they had very little:) Pam and Sara were wonderful! They helped my friends... More

Pam and her staff were very professional. Our historian, Joe, kept all ages engaged with his songs, jokes and knowledge of the battlefield. Sara, our other trail guide, was even kind enough to take our pictures with her own phone's camera., as we had forgotten ours. She then went out of her way to forward them to us. We ranged... More

Found this tour while searching for battleground tours for a long weekend get away trip with my boyfriend. He had specific grounds he wanted to visit so I emailed Pam to ask if the tour covered all or any. She replied quickly that they definitely hit 3 of his 4 requests! Yay! And she had openings at my specific time... More

We were a group of five novice riders, including a 7 year old child. The two guides were so very kind and great helping us ride on a short 1 hour trip, not the full battlefield tour. We enjoyed riding along parts of the battlefield on the Confederate side and visiting an old farmhouse. The two women from Hickory Hollow... More
