Horses were well suited for riders ability and experience. Safety was paramount. Scenery was welcomed for flatlanders like us. Our guide was awesome and knowledgeable.....very good with my young son who was a first timer. Definitely telling friends and family about this one!!

This is a really enjoyable place for newbies to ride and older folk as well. We took our three young grandsons, 9, 8, and 5 and they loved it. They will deck you out with a rain jacket and/or helmet if you desire. I loved...More

Kids started the morning in the schoolyard with the swings. Then we went to the Fish Hatchery and fed trout..now that was fun. Inside they have a great collection of pelts, ( feel them) and stuffed animals. Had lunch at Ninas, it's ok. Spent a good part of the afternoon at the Rec Center pool.. So lovely to be able to eat dinner outside, grilled chicken!
