Very friendly, professional staff. Knowledgeable guide. Ensured inexperienced riders enjoyed their time. Would definitely recommend. Would like to try the longer 3 hour ride next time!

Thanks for your review. We look forward to taking you out on a longer, faster ride next time... You and your riding partner looked like you could handle it! Nice riding! See you again!

Lovely trail ride with our expert guide, Matt. Our family felt very comfortable on the horses (first timers!) Our room was bright, airy and the bed was very comfortable!! We enjoyed the games room and had a lovely breakfast prepared by our hosts.
