“Horseback Riding in a Beautiful Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2014

I went horseback riding with two inexperienced teens and their grandmother who had never been on a horse. The staff was very supportive and the trails were lovely through the woods then a view of the beautiful waterfront surrounding Cape Charles. Would highly recommend this for a group or family activity. They also had several barn animals which added to the fun!

“wonderful ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

This horse farm is very well maintained. The horses are a pleasure. the staff is like one giant family. Your are welcomed in as soon as you show up. The ride through woods opens up to a great view of Kings Creek. Well worth the trip here.

“Scenic ride, experienced guides”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

My sister and I took a trail ride at Pfeiffer Riding Stables and really enjoyed it. We're both beginners, but had no trouble at all. The horses know the trail and follow commands well. We rode through the woods, along the river and trotted a bit back to the stable. The guides are experienced and the owner was very nice too. We had no problems booking, getting there, riding, paying. Great experience!

“Carriage ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

My daughter-in-law , grandson, and I were visiting Cape Charles for the day and what did we see coming down the main street was a horse drawn carriage. The lady,,who was the driver, looked so cute with her dress hat on. We hopped aboard for a wonderful ride through the quaint Eastern Shore town. She told us some very interesting history. At the end of our ride,she dropped us off at a precious town restaurant..It certinly beat walking! I might add, it was very resonably priced...

“A Fantastic Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

What a great experience! We are so glad we did a trail ride with Pfeiffer, which added so much to our vacation in the Cape. The owners take great care in their horses and visitors to make sure you are comfortable and at ease. I have done riding in the past, but it was the first time for my husband and our guide made it fun for the both of us. She told us information about the Cape, the horses, made local recommendations for our trip, and really made our experience a great one.

I would highly recommend for anyone and any level. They also have other farm animals that one can visit and are very open to visitors. It is great for kids and good for children's parties, too. If you are in the area, I hope you go!
