The horses and the staff are great. Certainly worth a trip through the woods. Lots to see and very relaxing

Wife and I did a couple hour horse back ride. Saw some beautiful scenery and had big horn sheep walk right up to us on horse back.

Guided horseback riding packages are available. We chose the half-day experience. The staff are helpful about helping you mount your horse, if you need that, and adjust the saddle and stirrups. They will tell you to use your horse's name, and some tips about the character of it. There is an upper weight limit. Children between certain ages may ride... More

My sister had made reservations for her family (her, her husband and and two eight year old sons) and I decided I'd like to tag along. So I just simply made a call to the staples and boom I was added. When we got there to check in I will admit that the two women that were there were a... More

Made a reservation a month in advance by email. They failed to give us directions in advance, instead requesting us to "call when you reach the park" to find we had no cell phone coverage ( well known in the park). When they did return our call to our cell ( the voice mail only picked up by email when... More

Our family of four (two adults, 12 year old and 10 year old) had a great time on our one hour horseback ride. My kids had never ridden before so we were a little unsure about how it would go. The guides were patient, encouraging, friendly and gave good instructions. We crossed a stream and went up and down a... More

My wife and I took our 7 and 9 year old girls on a 1 hour trek. The guides made the trip exceptional. The horses were very well trained and gentle. Highly recommend. Con: rain had washed out the trail for the 2 hour ride. Ah, mother nature... ;)

We had a 6 year old who was permitted to ride by herself -- a giant hit! The Concessionaire was a charmer.

My boys and I recently booked an hour ride with Blue Bell Stables and I thought it was fantastic. The people there were very friendly. The horses were brought over to us one at time and my boys (11 & 9) were able to get on with no problems. The horses were very well trained and knew exactly where to... More

Staff was beyond great! Beautiful scenery on the trail, as well as the drive to and from (Mount Coolidge is near by). My horse was a little awnry, but fun anyway. My kids, 7 and 9, rode alone and did wonderful, as well as had a great time. I would go again
