Stable had a straight forward sign up, very reasonable prices, and the horses were all gentle and easy to ride. Yea it was a pouring rain when we started so the boss took us under a canopy trail in the woods. Soon the rain subsided and the horses were taking on a country side walk. You'll enjoy this.

This place is absolutely amazing. It is the only place in Cave City where u can ride the Alpine Slide, visit a cave, get on bumper boats, go karts, bumper cars, play miniature golf and just have a good time.

My grandson and I rode the zip line, a first for both of us and it was a total blast! Three rides in one 1st 150 ft then 500 ft then 3400 ft ! 45.00 each and worth every penny. Btw I'm 67 and he's 12.

I was in Kentucky on a business trip from my homeland of Scotland, United Kingdom, I had been in this area so many times before, but never found time to come horse ride here. Fortunately for me, the place was very quiet, the morn I was here in late May 2016, I had booked for a two hour trip, but... More

For the money, it could have more on the tour. They have other things to do but you have to pay for each activity. We still enjoyed the experience!

Our family of four spent the afternoon at Jesse James Riding Stables. I vowed to never get on a horse after I had gotten kicked by another horse years ago. My family wanted to go horse back riding and with lots of encouragement I was on a horse once again. I have to say that the horse guides were extremely... More

We only did the horseback ride. Very reasonable price. The trail boss was a lot of fun and good with children. I highly recommend this experience.

I went with my 2 young kids who had never ridden before. The guide was more interested in showing off his "tricks" on his horse - riding backwards and checking his phone, standing up on the horse and generally showing off - than he was in actually being a guide. At 2 times he left us completely so his horse... More

The price was great for a hour-long ride, and the horses were gentle. We enjoyed a peaceful, serene ride through the property, but the guide could've been more interactive/talkative/informative/friendly. He basically just guided the horses through. I went years ago, and had a great guide who talked about the region and history of the area, and was fun to talk... More

We did the 3-person zipline package for $100. It was a great price and the wait was minimal. The staff there were extremely helpful, friendly, and comforting. Only complaints are that we were told our 6 year old could do a tandem ride on all 3 lines, but when we got up there they said she had to go solo... More
