Our ride today was the most fun I have had on a horse ever.. Debbie our guide was very professional and informative, our horses Trixie and Callie were sure footed steeds despite some sections of the route still containing a little ice. My 3 year old granddaughter was totally enthralled with the horses, and though she was too young to... More

My two kids and myself had a pleasant experience at Bear Creek last Saturday. I was very apprehensive at first allowing my very small, 7-yr old son ride by himself but the ladies were great and very patient with him. He rode Abbey and my daughter rode Maggie and both did very well. My kids have been talking non-stop about... More

I went here with my dad and mom, and it was really fun. The trail guide was friendly, and the horses were gentle. There was a good view in some places. I recommend it.

We texted to get our reservation, we received a prompt reply confirming it. After reading previous reviews we were pleasantly surprised with the owner and the staff. We had a wonderful experience. The staff was experienced. The horses were healthy and well taken care of. The love for these animals was very evident in the way the owner and staff... More

You definitely want to call ahead and not just show up! We called the night before and was able to get an early spot the next day. The owner was not very welcoming and ignored us when we first showed up that am. She did lighten up somewhat after taking our money and seeing we called ahead for an appt.... More

Sadly the Branson area only has 2 places left to rent horses for guided trail rides. We have been to both and Bear Creek Trail Rides is by far our favorite. The scenery is so much better and you truly get a full hour. Horses are well behaved. Make sure you call to make reservations. They limit the number of... More

Good shady ride despite the heat. Staff was friendly. Manager is blunt and to the point which some may take the wrong way. We liked her.

While the manager was not outwardly crabby (to me) as others have mentioned, she sort of seemed like she could care less if we were there to the point of even being bothered by our presence. There was certainly no fanfare or built up excitement about the pending ride. I'm not looking for a Broadway production, but some introduction to... More

I found an ad for family horse rides and thought this would be the perfect opportunity for my family- four kids, ages 8-15. At $25 per person it seemed like an affordable option for the six of us. I searched the internet and was only able to find their facebook page... Which apparently has incorrect information that they cannot change...... More

My family and I enjoyed this trail ride a lot. We've been on others and this one ranks up there. First, the location is right off 65 and not easy to see. Hidden roadway, right off the highway. Also, cash only. The ride was great and our guide Mike was very informative and patient with my family. Trails are scenic,... More
