My seven year old granddaughter loved it, as did I. They made her feel welcome and comfortable. The trail was through scenic fields and trees, with a nice variety of terrain. We will be sure to return with her younger sister next year!

My wife and I did the 1-hour trail ride, not having ridden for almost 40 years. Good value, great staff, paired with proper horses based on experience. Overall, a good and relaxing experience.
