Had a groupon for the winter ride and wasn’t able to use it until spring due to many icy days causing unsafe riding conditions. I was really impressed that the owner allowed for the “winter” rides to be extended for people who couldn’t get in...More

Since you didn't take the ride yourself I'm surprised you can leave a review. I wasn't at all worried about dogs on the beach. Another woman in a different group of horses mentioned the dogs were making her nervous as we rode onto the beach....More

It is clearly priced on the website, it is not touted as a beginner ride and the guides do stay out all day and then again in the evening to offer these rides. Often putting all horses away and then coming out to resaddle. This...More

Canters are not guaranteed on our rides, this is expressly written in the descriptions. All is by guide's discretion. Two guides can split a ride if it is determined that there is a difference in abilities. You were not signed up for a beginner ride,...More

We can do pony rides for children 3 to 5. They must be 6 years old to go on a trail ride and must be accompanied by an adult on their own horse.
