We just walked around a field, down a short path by the river and then back around the field I found myself wanting it to be over. It was also a very hot day and, since you needed jeans or long pants, we were roasting. I went here about 10 years ago and it seemed nicer with more walking by... More

Hi, It is unfortunate you did not enjoy your ride this time, however the trail ride is the same as it was 10 years ago! it is a one hour walk only guided ride. You are not required to wear long pants, but some people prefer to do this. It is whatever you are comfortable with. Due to the heat... More

Our family of 6 (4 children ages 11-19) all loved the leisurely ride! Our guides were wonderful. My youngest said to give a 10 star rating but we will have to settle just giving it a 5. Loved it!

We stayed for 5 days and four nights at the Farm by The River B&B. When we pulled up we weren't sure what to expect however we were quickly greeted with hospitality and smiles. Our room was cozy and quaint. The property is very close to Echo Lake, The North Conway Strip, and The Saco River. Horses are all over... More

If you are looking for a nice leisurely ride with beautiful scenery to look at this is it. Part of the ride is in open field with beautiful views of several mountains and part is through the woods by the river. The horses are well taken care of and gentle. The guides are knowledgeable of each horse's personality and care... More

Rick and Charlene were wonderful hosts, and their staff so very friendly! Their dog, Heidi, was well-behaved and very friendly. The Farm is a beautiful old colonial home that has been in Rick's family for many years, and it was so inviting to arrive on a chilly winter evening, walk through the front door and be greeted with a cozy...
