I went to the Rocking S Ranch with my friend last weekend. She really wanted to ride a horse. I wasn't as excited because of the ride I had last year @ the Marriott ranch in Hume, VA which was not so great....it was clear as soon as my sister and I arrived @ the Marriott ranch that they were not interested if we enjoyed the ride or not. They barely spoke to us.
The Rocking S Ranch was a completely different experience. Bill and his lovely daughters, Hayley and Shane did everything possible to ensure that my friend and I had the best ride possible. Bill, our guide, was so helpful that I felt I was also getting a free lesson. He was very generous with his time and knowledge....we never felt rushed. The ride was incredible. He took us up and down hills, thru creeks and we even galloped a little. It was a wonderful time and I hope I can make it back again ASAP.
