“great adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

jess is lovely, and super passionate about her horses. the 4 hour ride through her property was scenic and adventurous. her horses are clearly loved and very well behaved. we had limited riding experience (only riden twice before) but jess eased us up to a trot then canter, giving us plenty of tips along the way. beautiful scenery, lovely horses and a lovely guide. thumbs up!
