“Nice way to see Ashford's grounds”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

While the horses were nice (except two of them hated each other and at one point lunged at one another), we felt rushed to get on and get off, and our guide didn't offer much in the way of points of interest, or even look back at us very often. They had horses suitable for all abilities as we had experienced and novice riders in our group of three.

“An easy enjoyable horseback ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Since our group was large (6 people=6 horses) The employees chose to walk the horses instead of ride themselves. The employees were very knowledgeable and gave us all the history as we passed through the trails. The horses were very mild (I'm terrified of horses) but they were so gentle and took their time. It was very easy and enjoyable.
