Our family was on the timid side in terms of comfort with horses. My son was suppressing tears at the start of this ride and they immediately saw it, moved him to the front, and helped him through the initial stress of a new activity. In the end, he was glad he went and so was I. We wore helmets (mandatory for kids, optional adults) and did have to sign a rather silly waiver of liability (e.g., if I get a hangnail or if I die due to a major point of failure on Artemis' part, Artemis is not responsible) but whatever we wanted to ride. The ride was pretty and had gentle up and down grade with no steep drop offs. Cash price is cheaper than credit and instructors are knowledgeable about these horse. No horses went rogue and I especially liked getting Jack who was rather "lazy" until he sensed we were on the home stretch and then kept up with the others. Instructors do a good job of keeping the group together and making the ride as fun and safe as possible. Worth the (non-trivial) price tag! Our ride was an hour, though longer ones are available.
