Everyone at Jakes was super friendly and our guide was great. We did a three hour tour and saw a lot of wild life. Certainly a great family option in the area.

Well, now my 10 year old wants a horse! We had a wonderful ride with very friendly, experienced and safe guides. Had a fantastic dinner about 2/3 thru the ride, and got to cross the river on our horses. It really was a great time!

What a great experience. We took a two hour ride, our guide did a fantastic job, the horses were fun, the views on the trail were beautiful. There were four of us and everyone was happy. I would highly recommend Jake's.

Can we ride in tennis shoes, or do we need a boot with a heel?
June 9, 2017|
Answer
Response from Alex K |
Boots with a heel of some sort are preferable and a safer option, but any close-toed shoe is just fine-just keep your heels down!

My seven year old granddaughter will be riding for her first time. Do you have any one hour rides just to give her the experience? Curry

We definitely offer this. The one hour flies by though. The two hour is great for newbies and experienced people as well! Come and stop by! She will have a blast!!

What is the max weight one of the horses will take?
April 4, 2016|
Answer
Response from Tayler S | Reviewed this property |
I believe our max weight is between 240-250. While a horse can carry 20% of its own weight we set the weight limit so we are never risking overloading a horse.
