Sadly, this venue is now closed. There are other trail riding opportunities available in the Branson Area but Uncle Ike's was a real treat. I don't know if the owner retired or not but his venue is no longer located where it had been.

This place is very very unprofessional. We traveled around 5 hours for vacation in Branson and one girl in our group was very excited to go horseback riding. First of all, don't look at their website because it doesn't clearly explain their "rules." So on...More

The grey haired old bag at the register was incredibly rude. We arrived with a group of 3 adults and 3 children. We chose this place over the nearby one many other reviewers mention because this one will allow children as young as 6 to...More

Highly recommend Uncle Ike's. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The horses are loved and taken care of. They were very gentle and looked happy and healthy. We would love to ride again when we return the summer of 2017.
