We wanted to take our teenage daughter out to see the battlefield by horseback. After searching through the listings we found only one service still running in November. Because my daughter had just been studying the Civil war at school, having a licensed guide along was not important to us, so we booked the two hour tour without a guide.... More

The horses were immaculately groomed, young, calm, and eagerly responsive. John was a sure ride leader, and our guide, Teri, had an enormous wealth of knowledge. And what a story teller! This was a three-hour experience we want to do again.

Two first time horseback riders decided to make a last minute reservation for the 2 hour tour at Hickory Hollow Horse Farm. Admittedly, it was in the mid-40's with a wind chill (but the skies were blue and the sun was brilliant). We were the only 2 on the tour so we happily had several horseback riding tips and off...

Having never been on a horse, I was a bit intimidated (yes, I know how did I ever get to be this age and not be on a horse!!) but everyone made me feel so comfortable and at ease. I loved it. My friend and I took the one hour ride and had a wonderful time. The knowledge of our... More

A very nice outfit run by great folks. Although my girlfiend had purchased a ticket for the Hickory Hollow Horse Farm tour of the battlefield over a year ago, we'd never had a chance to use it till this past weekend. She couldn't find the orginal, but the proprietors still honored that she'd paid for it verbally over the phone... More

My wife and I recently enjoyed a wonderful trail ride on the Gettysburg Battlefield with the staff and horses of Hickory Hollow Farm. The two hour ride along Seminary Ridge was a scenic adventure that we will long remember. The horses were gentle and well trained, and the staff made sound judgments in matching these somewhat elderly beginner riders with... More

My brother and I used their services recently and have praised their operation to friends, family and business associates. We thanked them for a wonderful experience! Our guide, Sarah, went well beyond describing events that took place in 1863 at Gettysburg. Her narratives included descriptions of our horses personalities and tendencies as well as additional activities surrounding the battlefield. Sarah... More

We are not "horse people," and no experience riding, but had the best time. Pam, the owner, and Tasha, trail guide, took great care of us. The licensed guide did a great job. Pam and Tasha were very attentive and detail oriented. Tasha stopped and made an adjustment to a piece of my equipment that made me immediately more comfortable.... More

We went out with some friends while in town for the dog show. The horses were well cared for and pretty compliant. This is a walk-only tour with the emphasis on the history of the battle. My friends thought there would be more riding,less talking, but I did not feel that way at all. I went because I wanted to... More

I cannot say enough good things about Hickory Hollow Horse Farm. We have a daughter with autism, so when I contacted Pam to schedule a ride, I asked her what they were able to do to help us make the ride successful. She assured me that they had a horse who would be perfect for our daughter, and also offered... More
