We booked only 3 days prior to the ride, as we were watching the weather. The campground is easy to find and so was Hickory Hollow. The horses are well trained, but, have lots of personality! We opted for the battlefield licensed guide tour - Les was our guide. He provided a lot of details at each stop along the... More

As a Christmas gift, my wife purchased 2 tickets for a 2 hour ride with a guide. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by Pam who chose our horses (Viggo and Big Moe) and got us mounted for the ride. There were 5 couples in our group and every effort was made to educate us on the manners of the horses,... More

The owner/manager, Pam, is absolutely wonderful. She goes out of her way with regards to customer service and, we felt comfortable with her decisions on which horses were best suited for the 5 of us (2 adults and 3 children). We had the option for headphones for the tour but, didn't want to be 'tied down' with technology, while taking... More

We booked this tour a few weeks ahead after careful consideration of all the options. All equipment, including the helmets provided, was in excellent condition. I really appreciated the water bottle holders attached to the saddles! The horses were clearly assigned with great care, and 2 out of the 4 in my family had never ridden before but we were... More

This is an excellent activity for families. We have three teenagers and the ride made viewing the battlefields fun and exciting for everyone. Pam was a great guide. The horses were gentle and easy to ride. The trail was beautiful and provided a great way to experience the battlefields. We were in the shade most of the time, yet had... More

Well worth taking a two hour battlefield tour. Terry, our guide and Amanda, our wrangler were pleasant, informative and all around nice ladies who made the two hours fly by. Pam was very helpful and made us feel right at home. Great way to see the battlefield!!

1. We weren't told where to meet. When we showed up at the stables, we were then told where to go and meet on the battlefield. This led to us driving several miles out of our way and ultimately being late. 2. When we got there it was pouring down with rain and rather cold, so many people in the... More

Excellent day for a ride on the battlefield. Pam returned phone calls promptly and went above and beyond to get a ride scheduled for our trip to Gettysburg since our time here was limited. Staff was pleasant and helpful to make the tour a wonderful experienced. Horses were well groomed and well cared for. Our Narrator was Terri and she... More

This was our second time back. Knowledgable and extremely nice folks. I'd highly recommend this ride. Our battlefield guide, Les, gave a great talk. Don't miss this!

My youngest niece wanted to go horseback riding somewhere. Found Hickory Hollow Farm and booked our reservations. We had varying levels of experience. No problem. They have a horse for anyone. We took the hour ride and it was over before we knew it. They did stop half way and took pictures with my camera. Nice touch! Thanks for a... More
