Nothing fancy, just a straight-forward trail ride experience. The staff appeared to be experienced horsemen and women. No showmanship, no tall tales, no clowning around, etc. They just went about the business of working with the horses and getting the trail ride done. The were very focused on rider safety and were professional through all phases of the ride. This trail ride is definitely oriented towards the first-time or novice rider. It is a very controlled trail ride over a set trail mostly in wooded areas with some up and down terrain. The horses are older, deadhead types you would expect for this type of a trail ride. All appeared well cared for. The actual ride lasted about 40 minutes, not including mounting and dismounting and getting everybody organized. There were about a dozen riders total. They have a "mounting platform" they use so you do not need to be a gymnast to get on the horses
It is a strictly a first come, first served system, no reservations, so you may have to wait a while. I assume they would take a reservation for a large group but did not ask. If you are going in the summer, which is probably the case for most people, I suggest you try to do the ride first thing in the morning. The staff told me they usually are least busy in the morning and the cooler temperatures make it a more pleasant experience for the riders, horses, and wranglers. I took my grand kids age 7-12 on the trip and they really liked it. They all had some prior horse riding experience but not a lot. There were several first-time riders on our ride and they seemed to enjoy it as well. I would recommend it for first time riders or anyone that just wants to enjoy a walk through the forest on a horse. If you are an experienced rider looking for a some exhilarating riding, it is probably not for you.
The cost seemed a little on the high side for an activity that lasts less than an hour. However, one has to keep in mind that the horses have to eat 7 days a week, 365 days a year whether there are riders or not. With that thought in mind, the cost is probably reasonable.
