Confederate flag blanket? No thank you. Ride was good
Jun 2021
The booking experience was easy, we made a phone call a few days in advance and got in when we wanted to.

When we arrived I found the bathroom, which is just an outhouse with a toilet seat and a half barrel/bucket below it, so not really kid-friendly or cleanliness-friendly, so be ready for that.

But here's where they lost me; they started bringing out the horses with the blankets and one of the horses had a CONFEDERATE FLAG blanket!!! No thank you. This is not welcoming at all. If I hadn't been with others where I didn't feel I could speak up, I would have not gone through with the trail ride. I would have refused that horse if given that horse, though.

The guy who sold us tickets also talked about how he wasn't vaccinated because he's afraid of a microchip.

The trail ride was great. The guide was very knowledgeable and very helpful.

There is a sign about tips at the end of the trail ride, so I'd be ready to do that.

They did have a deer there that they rescued and would have died if they hadn't, so that's nice of them.

Horrible

I was given a horse that "was ornery" according to the guide. I had never risen before. The guide yelled at me because the horse wasn't behaving. He kept kicking the other horses.
Before it was over I was crying. What was supposed to be fun was a horrible experience.

Beautiful and Relaxing Ride
Mar 2021 • Family
My family did a 2 hour ride with Shay today and we could not have had a better time. Everyone at OK Trading Post was so nice and Shay went out of her way to connect with each of us. She stopped multiple times to point out interesting features in the beautiful forest and we could tell that she really loves what she does. She even found my lost phone on her next ride after us. The horses were all gentle and well trained. The petting zoo animals were an added bonus. We will definitely be back to visit when we are in the area again.

We had a great experience. The guide was awesome. The entire place was exactly what we expected. The horses were well cared for and very well trained. There were 7 of us ranging from 47 years old to 11 years old. We all had an amazing experience.

Must try!! Great place!!
Oct 2020
We went to Trading Post on our last day of vacation. We booked for an hour, and it was great!!!! My horse was Gene, my dad's Ranger, and my mom's Dixie. One of the guides gave us easy to follow instructions, and stayed with us until it was time for us to start. The horses were so well trained that they would follow the horse in front of them even if it was off the trail! Scenery was beautiful. For younger children (8 and under), they put a guide in front on a different horse and tie a rope from the child's horse to theirs so nothing could happen to the child. The guides were nice. And when we got there, they didn't tell us to wear masks. Why no one there was wearing one! You really must try it!! They also have chickens and other animals.

What a wonderful adventure! Our 1 hour trail ride was perfect for us, along with our 7 year old granddaughter. All the people running the business couldn’t have been nicer or easier to work with. Being from a city, we enjoyed the opportunity of riding a horse through the peaceful woods on a beautiful fall day. An added bonus for our granddaughter was all the animals she could pet, at the petting farm area, before and after the ride. Definitely put this on your list while in Mountain View!
