The staff at the riding center were very courteous however my son became so afraid of horses once he was placed onto one that he refused to ride. He kept screaming no no no so I didn’t want to force him to ride. The one...More
I took my nieces on their first ever horseback riding experience. The trails ride was about an hour for the beginner trail (far longer than any trail ride I had been on as a kid). The horses were very calm and the staff was very...More

Check in went great and the scenery was beautiful horses were perfect! Unfortunately the whole experience was negative because our guide was so unbelievably cranky!!!

We’ve had a home in the Galena Territory for 12 years and have enjoyed many rides at Shenendoah over the years. Stable ownership changed recently, and we were surprised by how poor our first experience (in late December) with the new owner was.
Date of experience: December 2018

My 12 year old daughter and I went on the beginner trail ride. She rode Walt and I rode Luke. It was the perfect length...I felt like we "got our money's worth", we saw a lot of different scenery and got to do some different...More
This was my second visit to the riding center. They pair you with a horse and guide and you'll have fun no matter your skill level. The scenery is beautiful and on my next visit to Galena will go again.
This place is most impressive with the horses being in the healthiest I have see. The country side was gorgeous with wildflowers blooming everywhere. Not a fast ride just comfortable for us and the guide was great. They have faster paced rides but for us...More
