“Gorgeous scenery, nice horses, great guide.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

First off, I was thrilled they were open as it was so late in the season. The horses we saw appeared in good condition. My husband and I own our own horses so we didn't ask for much guidance, but honestly, the horses we rode were so good I would trust kids on them. The two hour trip was perfect. Great view of the lake. Trail meandered through aspen and pine trees, boulders and streams. There was patches of snow in some areas making the ride even prettier. The horses were in their late teens, but didn't break a sweat. "Joe" the guide was informative and friendly. I would recommend this company.

“Beautiful & Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Our family of 5 lives in Carson City and decided to enjoy a "staycation" which included a late morning ride w/Anthony (Tony) at Zephyr Cove Stables. We were fortunate to have a private tour and truly enjoyed the peaceful relaxing pace at which we ventured through the woods. Our guide was quite personable with our kids (ages 13, 10 & 7) and had lots of local knowledge to share. Our horses were great with us and obviously well-cared for. We would definitely recommend this for locals and visitors!

“Great Times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The family and i had a great time in Tahoe, Topped it off with a Dinner ride to the top of the Mt. with Great Views of the lake. Tony our Guide was a real deal cowboy with rodeo tales and and great stories about his growing up on a ranch and roping and bull riding. Joe the other cowboy guide was also a great host. The Family that runs the stables have been doing it for years. Finished out with a real ranch BBQ topped of with S'mores. Great times had by us and our 9 year old daughter. Would go back next time in Tahoe.

“fantastic perspective of Lake Tahoe by horse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

I did the 2 hour 10am ride withmy sister in law, we were actually the only 2 signed up so it was a private tour which was awesome. Ive never rode a horse before but i felt very confortable the entire time. My horse was Pearl, she was really calm and sweet; she occasionally liked to stop and snack on the foliage but it was easy to get her back on track. Our guide was Haylee, she was awesome and very helpful with navigating the trail. The views were breathtaking, i was truly happy with the experience and would recomend it to anyone visiting Lake Tahoe.
