they have 2 different time frames and we took the 1 hour 45 minutes. Went with a group of 7 from 7 to 67 years old. We all had a great time. A few of us had never rode a horse except the pony rides where they walk the horse and a few of us have ridden before but not... More

We were a large group with children ranging from 3 to 11. The 3 year old rode with me and the rest of the kids rode on their own. This was their first time riding and had an incredible time. The horses were sweet and gentle and the guide and everyone was helpful and knowledgeable. We had a great experience!

Hmm, I read the other reviews after our horseback adventure here. We were fortunate and had an excellent experience. While the grounds and the barn are dilapidated, the people were very friendly and extremely helpful. In fact our guide talked to us through much of the tour and gave my son, a first-time rider, lots of instruction. I was very... More

Not much help when starting. Took my wife and the two kids (8 and 10) they did not have helmets (we used bicycle ones) Saddle did not fit my son well. Once half way up mountain, one of the riders fell off his horse with a medical condition. No first aid kit or way to communicate with office (there was... More

I was hoping the positive reviews of Queen’s Farm Stables were right, but I found that the critical ones were unfortunately the accurate ones. This stable is obviously run on a shoestring. It is dilapidated. The bridle on my horse broke twice and the guide had to retie it with the hay string that had broken. Yes, the bridle had... More

This was a great time by all. Took 2 kids and our family of 4 enjoyed every minute of the adventure up the mountain through a scenic trail. We would definitely return. We did the 1 hour trail.

I made reservations 2 days in advance for 4 of my grandchildren, 3 girls and an 8 yr.old boy. My daughters asked me to request a female trail guide. We were assured we would get one when she returned to work, so we waited an extra day to get her. When arriving today for a 10 AM ride, we were... More

The horses are more well mannered than the staff, whose state of sobriety is questionable. They won't get another dime from me. #justsayno
