We went horseback riding the first day we arrived at Forrest Hills Resort, and Dusty and his crew were almost finished for the day, actually packing it in when we checked into our cabins. The front desk called Gold City to see if they would take guests on another ride, and they took down all the tack and got the... More

Thanks to Gary at Gold City Corral for setting up the perfect Birthday Trail Ride for my granddaughter (age 9). The horses were beautiful, the scenery was awesome and our guides (Dusty and Christina) were the perfect hosts. Would recommend this experience to both novice and experienced riders. I am sure we will make the trek back!

If you get Dusty and Hannah, you are VERY lucky. They both make you feel comfortable about riding and actually talk to you. They wanted to know about you, and they wanted to tell you about them! I loved it. We had great horses, and I can promise you will we be back in the very near future!

We are experienced horse people from south Florida, all our family members are involved in the AQHA show circuits, we to take in rescue horses, it is obvious the person who wrote the review about the underfed horses has not had any experience with starving rescued horses, we thought your horses looked fine a few weeks ago, we were able...

Great way to spend a birthday! Very relaxing and tranquil. The 1 hour guided tour was the perfect amount of time for us novice riders to take on a first try. Our tour guide was very informative and helpful. They even match your "personalities" to your horses and give instructions on how to hold the reigns, etc., before you take... More

I hesitated going after I read the review about the horses being underfed. I am an animal lover and come from a family of critter lovers. the last thing I wanted to do was show up and support a place that neglected animals. I happened to forget about that particular review as I read so many different reviews. My dad... More

I love to ride and had seen this on TripAdvisor so during a day trip to Dahlonega I drove out to see the stable. Staff was polite and welcoming, but the majority of horses I saw in the corral looked sadly underfed, with ribs showing and even some hip bones. I know keeping horses well fed is expensive, and I...

Best $12 for a Couple I ever Spent. The Driver was excellent. He is for filling his late girlfriends dream of operating this company. It weaves it way around the square and totally set the mood of the evening! They even lifted my friend up on the horse for photos. Just up the Street from the Porter House and across... More

We came here for Easter Sunday to ride with our families. The prices are very reasonable, especially for a large group (6+). The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a couple people who had never ridden, and they were able to give them a quick tutorial and made them feel very comfortable. If you are looking for a... More
