Where we are, kids under the age of 13 are hard-pressed to find a stable that allows trail rides. My 6 year old had a grand time. We did the one hour ride just so he could get a feel for it. The guide watched him closely. I felt very comfortable with him on a horse. The guides were really good to the kids and were very patient with the kids who couldn't control their horses. The horses chosen for each person in our family were a perfect match. I wish we had more time to do the longer rides. If we are ever back in the area, I will make the time to do a longer ride. Compared to what we pay here, the pricing was great for a party of 7. It's close enough to town for a short drive, but it is far enough where the city buzz does not affect the ride. We didn't realize until later, but it's close to Cave and Basin. The location is excellent. If you're new to riding or don't have a whole lot of experience, it's great. Experienced riders may lose patience with inexperienced riders who do not know how to follow instructions.
