Was a nice ride and our guide was friendly. I thought the price was a tad high ($50 for an hour long ride). Horses really just play follow the leader. Nice for a beginner rider.More

As a long time horse rider, I've never been fond of places that overwork their horses all day, leaving them tied to the fence/paddock all day in sweltering heat, flies, and 20+ lb saddles. This is exactly what I found and proof of how overworked...More

I'm sorry this person feels our horses are overworked. You can look at all of our horses to see how well fed and fat they are. Several large commercial fans are blowing on the horses and there is plenty of shade for them. Being in...More

What a lovely place to ride! The trails were well-maintained but still looked natural. The forest views were lovely as was the view of Lake George. Once we left the stable we didn't see traffic, houses, or any signs of civilization--perfect! The staff did a...More

This is a friendly bunch! Great horses with an easy walking trail. Great view of the lake. There are lots of interesting fact signs to read along the way. Perfect family activity.

I liked the trail ride through the forest. There was a beautiful view of Lake George at one point. It lasted about an hour. The horses were very calm. It was a really great experience for my 8 year old son as well as myself!
