“extremely expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We had a 1.5 hour trek, it was generally up a ski road, then into a farm, nothing startling, luckily we didn't strike the manager that the other reviewers got ??!!!! However it was incredibly expensive, and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone

Went here with our children and the manager was just mean and nasty to our children. We left after a terrible experience.

“Horrible Manager”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The lady who runs the place is horrible!!! The staff a lovely but when i was their the old crazy lady screamed at one so much that she started crying!!! Poor horses and staff that have to work for her must have a terrible life! The worst part is that im not making this up for a terrible review. The staff and horses and the place is nice but the manager (the old lady) is really quite horrible.

“Nice Ride - Horrible Manager”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

My partner had her heart set on a ride. When she called the manager abused her for asking for directions then hung up on her. She went despite this enjoyed the ride but heard this same lady abuse another customer then winge about them once they had left.

Poor form
