It's absolutely difficult to make reservations especially if you purchased a groupon deal. They do a poor job at responding to emails and phone calls. BOOK ELSEWHERE!

Took the 1 1/2 hour morning ride. Breathtaking. Great handler. Good horses. Cant wait to go back. I previously did the 1 hour ride. The vistas on this ride were far superior.
