We booked the sunset ride and were not disappointed. Dustin and Hanna were great wranglers the horses were also top notch. This is not your usual boring head to tail chain ride. We had so much fun we are going back again in 2 days.

We enjoyed everything about our sunset ride. The views were spectacular. Our trail guide Dustin was great. Explained very well how to ride and handle the horses. We were given the opportunities to trot and canter. It was a very laid back relaxing experience.

My wife, 14 year old son, and I spent an afternoon on their City Slicker ride which was perfect for us novices. It’s an easy nose to tail walk across some of the most stunning pasture in the world. Rolling hills with breathtaking open vistas...More
