We couldn't have enjoyed the trail ride more. The people were knowable, and the horses were perfect for us .the terrain was a real experience of the Ozark area and the horses well suited. Nicely shaded lots to look at! I highly recommend this ride

I don't know if you can or not. I booked reservations about 2 weeks before by calling, then payed them cash when we got there. Give them a call and they will let you know if you can.
