We received a warm welcome from barn staff, and a quick safety checkout. Around a dozen horses were already saddled and ready. They were obviously well... More

Another amazing ride at Piping Rock! The trail was gorgeous, the horses were sweet and obviously well cared for, and our guide Anya did a great job. Our favorite part was going through Prosser Creek. We live this stable...and we will definitely be back!

This summer was our second time attending Piping Rock summer camp and it just keeps getting better. My children (boy age 9 and girl age 6) both attended two years ago and really enjoyed it. They asked to come back several times. Finally this summer I was able to enroll them and make it happen. They loved it. They both... More

I went on the 3 hour trail ride and it was fantastic! Everything about this place is first class. The horses are very well taken care of and seem to love the trails. The scenery was beautiful. I can't wait to go back and ride again!

Decided to take a couple of riding lessons here as a bucket list thing. It is very professionally run and the animals are well cared for. Lots of options, too, for trail rides, kids camps, individual and group lessons. Also it's easy to get to-- just off of interstate 80, near the agricultural check station.

Great trail rides and lessons! My son has been taking group lesson and is having a wonderful time. The instructors seem to really enjoy working with the kids and helping them learn how to ride safely and have fun too. He has been able to take a few trail rides as well and really enjoys it.

My husband and I booked an hour and a half long trail ride for our anniversary. Mick was our tour guide. She was super friendly and very knowledgeable. We had a private, relaxing ride up and down easy terrain, and we were even able to see a few deer. Our horses were extremely well cared for, and very well trained.... More
