We went horseback riding today and it was the most enjoyable horseback ride we've ever been on. The price was great, the ride was great- got to trot, and the scenery was spectacular. Lunch was included and it was great. Top Spot - Definitely!!!

We rode with Tracey and she was full of knowledge. She was very patient with the million questions our 8 year old had. They do side by side riding so it wasn't just nose to butt and felt like riding horses instead of a merry-go-round....More
