Highly Satisfied

I had the best time riding with the girls I did and the trails we went on were nice. I liked this much better than going around a field!

Nice treat!

Max was our guide and Twilight and Woodrow were our horses! Max was great; so friendly and helpful! We originally planned for the 1.5 hours tour but quickly realized that 45 minutes would be plenty- simply because, it was our first time and it was so hot!!

Incredible Trail Ride!
Aug 2021 • Family
Amazing trail ride! The horses are so well trained, you feel at ease even without horse experience. Laura was a gem. We had a younger one have a bit of a moment and she was so calm and handled it with poise and patience. All in all an incredible time was had by all! Thank you!

Fun Horse ride
Jun 2021 • Solo
I have only ridden a horse once before going on this excursion. They make sure you ride a horse appropriate for your level of expertise. It had rained the last two days before we went so the trail was all mud. My shoes and pants got muddy.. I think the ride would have been better on dry land. Otherwise they take you right into the woods. The only thing I wish was different is the pace. It seemed like we had to stop a lot along the trail for saddle adjustments or horse out of line. I didn't mind letting the horses rest with the photo op. Maybe it would be better if I was at the beginning of the line not the end.

Good for beginners
Jun 2021 • Family
Great place to bring your young or beginner riders. Prices are reasonable and staff is accommodating. The horses were very gentle but I felt bad for them with the trail being soooo muddy making hills/passes more difficult.

Wonderful inexpensive country fun!
Mar 2021
This was an unexpected addition to our weekend getaway. We called last minute and were able to go that afternoon. The staff were incredibly low key and friendly. They made us feel so comfortable just hanging out and seeing the animals. We were even able to take a last minute ride we decided to go on. Very fun and down to earth- literally!

GREAT family experience
Aug 2020
My wife, youngest granddaughter and myself were planning a long weekend in the in Ky and thought about horseback riding while in the area.
What a beautiful drive to get there from the motel!
We had to call and make reservations a few days prior which we did. We got there an hour or so early, met some of the guides and staff, the pigs, goats and donkeys. BYW the staff provide treats to give to the livestock and bottled water for guests to drink while waiting if you are early.
VERY professional riding stable. There is a waiver to be filled out with several questions to match the rider with the horse.
Only one in our small group had any time on the back of a horse, the matching of horse and riders was awesome for us.
The 2 guides were incredibly knowledgeable about each horses history, quirks, likes and dislikes.
The guides work free, tips provide their income. We gave them $20 each without any hesitation for their work and wisdom!
250 acres of trails it is a good thing the guides were with us! Heck! We may still be there without them!
Great family time! Great people!

Great experience for the kids!
Aug 2020 • Family
We really enjoyed our trip to the stables. It was a great experience for the kids. The kids got to feed the animals and enjoyed there first ride. They can’t wait to do it again. They even got necklaces to remember the day! It was great.

Best Trail Ride Ever!!
Jun 2020 • Solo
Great place for trail riding. I’ve never been a big fan of nose-to-tail trail rides but This was truly an awesome ride. Recommend the 90-min ride ride. The horses are in great condition and a joy to ride. The hilly trails through the woods made it incredibly relaxing and just SOO much fun. Staff is wonderful, very friendly and professional. Can’t wait for a return trip to Lexington - I will DEF be going back to Whispering Woods Stables to ride again.

Great afternoon on horseback in the woods
Oct 2019
A month ago, in October, my two sisters and I enjoyed a much anticipated, week long trip to the Lexington area. One of our fave adventures was taking a private trail ride thru beautiful woodsy setting of Whispering Woods. Our horses, Woodrow, Fandango and Hadrich were gentle and followed the leader. Our guide, Kelsey, was delightful. She talked to us and pointed things out (like deer, several times) during the whole ride. We grew up with horses but being 75, 66 and 60, it was a whole different ballgame for us and we did a lot of laughing! Like most of our KY adventures, we had a delightful time and hope to come back to enjoy the experiences again. I would advise that you wear sensible shoes and be truthful about your horseback riding skills. They will put you on an appropriate mount. And be sure to tip your guide, they sure earn it.
