First and foremost the stable and horses did not look well cared for. Our ride was short and not very scenic. The "guide" spoke inappropriately considering I had my daughter with me. I was told I was not allowed to bring my phone and that they would take pictures of us, but I never got any. The timing of our ride was changed due to possible "snow" which made no sense. My daughter enjoyed it, but the price for the level of experience and the cheesy signs reminding us to tip our guide at the end of the ride left a bad tasted in my mouth. I do not recommend.

Recently went to Legends Riding Stable and regretted it immediately. Overpriced for what you get which is a 40 minute bumpy horseback ride on a short trail with branches hanging low and smacking you in the head. As if that weren’t bad enough, the only two employees there were rude and horses don’t seem well cared for. The horses we rode turned our hands brown with light petting and their legs were filthy. Horse droppings filled the trail and looked like they hadn’t been cleaned up for days. Parking lot is small and afterwards there was a car parked right behind us and we couldn’t get out. Also no bathrooms, not even portable toilets. Finally, their policy is you can’t take photos during the ride, but the guide takes a photo of each group. Lucky for us, she didn’t even prepare us for the photo and just started snapping a shot. Even worse, she included the group behind us in the photo. Perfect souvenir to end a bad experience! Don’t waste your time....

We decided to take a day trip this summer and we chose Legends Riding Stable. When I called they told me it would be an hour ride and made their farm sound amazing. However when we arrived the farm appeared very old and not up kept very well. The staff was less then friendly...quite opposite then on the phone. The stables looked dirty and the horses tired. None the less the ride itself was pleasant and the guide gave some interesting information. It was very disappointing though that the ride itself was only 40 minutes. It took 20 minutes to get the group saddled in their horses and those 20 minutes counted towards the hour experience. We were happy to get to have a ride and we made the best of it but probably will not return.

When we called we were told the ride would be one hour but the reality was it was forty minutes. I should have gotten a third of my money back. Also we were told no reservation was needed, "just come on up". But when we got there we had to wait half an hour for the last group to return. For the price they charged, $50, I can't recommend them. Better to go to Echo Lakes stable in West Milford. They give you a full hour ride through nicer countryside for less money.

Not recommended. 90% of “trail” is a narrow dirt patch in woods. Most of ride ducking branches, legs in bushes, face smacked by branches . Definitely wear a hat and long pants/sleeves, if you decide to go, because of this. When we came to a brief open trail i asked why more of the ride not on open path. Apparently its a trot path that sometimes they allow riders a brief trot on horse. We were not offered this option also stirrups not adjusted for riders. You got what you got. Not an enjoyable hour. I definitely don’t recommend .

We always like to go to the stable across from Minerals Resort to go horseback riding. They do a great job and it's very reasonable. All of our guests to come to stay with us enjoy going there r.

Took kids (15,11) there on slightly rainy day. Staff was very friendly, fitted the kids with helmets and had us on some very docile and accommodating horses in 5 minutes.The ride was a full hour, guided by one of the friendly staffers, and the trail was mostly through the woods and was quiet and scenic. Definitely a good value, we highly recommend these guys.

We visited Legends while staying at Grand Cascades lodge. One of the teenagers in our party had never ridden before, but that wasn't a problem. We had a great ride. Would definitely return if we are ever back in the area.
