Most of the reviews I read our spot on with the establishment. It is single file riding and it is slow. A couple of the horses are in their mid 20's so they're older. The outside... read more

Most of the reviews I read our spot on with the establishment. It is single file riding and it is slow. A couple of the horses are in their mid 20's so they're older. The outside is also pretty run down. The photos taken hide a lot of that, I had to double check the name. The guide was very... More

The views were nice, but this was a REALLY slow ride! Our guide talked the entire time but we were unable to hear her because we were in the back. I've ridden horses my entire life and was disappointed at the pace of this ride. My horse had one gear - SLOW. Granted, they get all levels of riders, but... More

Nice, pleasant trail ride. Good views. Single file riding on some backwoods trails. Experienced riders might be bored. Wish the guide had stopped more to let us take photos. I think he was bored. when he talked, those of us in rear could not hear. It would have been nice to be able to dismount at the top of the... More

This was just a stopping point on our way from one location to the next! We had a really good ride! Our guides we young but they knew what they were doing. We had a fairly large group so I got to ride the main ranch hands personal horse! I would totally go back if ever in the area!!

We scheduled for a Saturday 2 weeks in advance (we bought a groupon FYI) for our parents who were visiting from Illinois. We called and confirmed we were scheduled for Saturday. We tried calling and emailing the day before, no response from either. We get up at 4:30am and drive for a couple hours to make our schedule. When we... More

I actually took a 2hour trip on a horse by the name of Whisperer. Trotting was the best part. (Ibuprofen helped after) The guides were very careful to make sure you knew what was what. Explained things we saw, names of mountains, etc. Kids can go as well, there's a one hour trip they'd enjoy. Just so you know, Lightning... More

Went with a group of 8 and got their 20 minutes early like requested and then they were not ready for us for another hour. I thought it was a really run down place and very expensive for an hour ride. The Elkhorn Lodge looks like it was a super nice place back in the day but looks like it... More
