Horseback riding at Big Red Stables was a highlight during our trip to Kentucky! Emily takes time to ensure you’re comfortable on your horse before you head out and provides a fun experience.

Emily and Drew are wonderful people and take incredible care of their horses! The property is breathtakingly beautiful, and the ride is picturesque. From the moment you arrive you will feel comfortable and be placed with a horse suitable to your experience level. Emily is a true expert and great at offering tips and encouraging you to become a better rider. Afterward I helped take off my horse's saddle and hose her off which was neat. I have never had another riding experience quite like this one. Special people, great place, I will be back!

My husband and I just did the 1-hour ride around the farm with Drew, and it was wonderful! It was a bit of a ride from Lexington, but we're glad we did it! Emily and Drew were so friendly and helpful. The farm itself is beautiful, and a great setting for a horse-ride. We are both beginners, and got good instruction all along the ride. We've done horse trails in many areas, and would highly recommend this one. Friendly and knowledgeable people, beautiful ride. Also, very well-priced!

Book a ride with Big Red Stables!!! You will not regret it. I always love to book a ride wherever I travel and this trip was no exception. We made an appointment for a trail ride at Shaker Village early in the morning. When a storm came through and cancelled our appointment they did everything in their ability to fit us in on a different day. I am so glad they did, we were rewarded with a beautiful morning and one of the most beautiful and lovely trail rides I have ever taken. Drew was friendly and informative and kept us entertained throughout the ride. I will never forget the waterfall and walking under the shale rock in the stream as well as the rolling hills. When we lost money during the ride (my fault) Drew was even kind enough to wait for us while we went to an ATM and took a conference call from the truck. If I am ever back in Kentucky I will definitely book another tour.

Emily and Drew were fantastic hosts! We are not experienced riders, but wanted an outdoor activity due to COVID constraints on life. This was the perfect fit! Big Red Stables is a beautiful property to ride around to enjoy the scenery that Kentucky has to offer. Our horses were perfect or our lack of expertise. We all felt comfortable and safe on our ride. I can’t wait to find a reason to visit again.
