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

I am not one to complain but these folks need improvement. Staff was indifferent... manager at the stable ignored our guides repeated request to get direction about which horse to put us on. Finally they found a horse for my wife then sent her by herself into an open area and said wait by the rock. She has little knowledge... More

We had a fun ride Memorial day weekend. The staff was friendly, and the horses were beautiful. My only complaint is that our ride was supposed to be half an hour, and ibdont think it was quite that long. Would definitely go again!

The guide was awesome. He was funny, nice and experienced. The scenery was beautiful. My 8 year old daughter never rode before and did well by herself. The horses were tame and friendly.

This was a great ride through wood and meadow. Our guide gave us history on the trail in which we were riding, the old "Stagecoach Road". The horses were gentle and the ride thoroughly enjoyable.
