My husband called to make a reservation, being sure to let the lady know that we were experienced riders wanting more that just the typical sit-there-&-let-the-horses-go-on-their-own ride. She said it was no problem. We set our reservation for 3:30, driving 1 1/2 hours to get...More

My 15 year old son and I loved our hour long trail ride. Totally immersed in nature, lovely people, horses and dogs are so fun. City folk (as we are) do not be daunted by the road in or the fact that there may be...More

We have been there a number of times and will be back. We stay at the rustic lodge and love it. It is large and peaceful at night. The riding is great. The trails are something you just can not get anyplace else. Carol the...More

We can't say enough good things about Carol, the owner. She treats everyone like she your aunt. The horses are well cared for and very calm, relaxed. It felt we pulled into someone's home when we arrived and horses/roosters were roaming the property. We were...More
