The kids did enjoy the pony rides, and it was rather cheap($10), but you only get 3 laps around a small area- so not a very long ride. My biggest complaint is one staff was rude. And the staff barely interacted with the kids, one staff in particular, just seemed inconvenienced by having us there. I don't expect the staff to chat with the kids while leading the pony, just say hello! The kids were so excited and I expected the staff to be more friendly. The staff in the booth was friendly and kind though. It is right by a busy road; I was expecting more of a farm setting.

Staff was rude. The staff was loud and yelling the entire time of the horse back ride. The most unprofessional group I have ever seen in any business. We made back-to-back private ride reservations and the staff would not accommodate our request after charging our credit card the full amount. Refused to give a refund. Total criminals.

Best trail ride I have been on in years!! We wanted a private ride with some extra saddle time, so we booked back-to-back 1 hour private rides. We were so lucky to be paired up with Jordan as our guide. I have been riding for 15+ years and the other two in our party were brand new. She did an amazing job of taking care of the new riders while making sure I was having a great time. We had multiple trots and once she was confident I knew what I was doing even let me get in some cantering!! Her horse knowledge was awesome and it was so much fun hearing all about her experience at the barn and with her own horse. She was personable and made a great ride even better!!

Absolutely worth the upgrade to the private and definitely request Jordan!! You will not regret it!

Bonus info- my 4.5 year old son waited with grandpa while we were riding. Since we got there early, the staff went out of their way telling him about the horses and even did a special meet and greet with their two draft horses picking him up to rub their faces. He had an awesome pony ride to end our time there and I'm in trouble because they turned him into a horse lover.

Thank you to the folks at Mountain Creek and Jordan in particular. This was the highlight of our trip and we can't wait to come back!!

So on 9/25/2020 I booked online for 5 riders, myself and my girlfriends. (See attached) and on 10/2/3020 at 4:30pm (see attached), I received an email stating that one rider— myself exceeded the weight limit, no problem, the other four girls can still go. A side from no mention of a weight limit, I’m upset it took 7 days to get notified. The reason I saw the email this morning was because I was looking to pull the address for driving directions!! I called this morning to confirm the other 4 girls could still ride at 11am and the receptionist told me that once it declined my booking they automatically took call-in requests from yesterday and gave away our slot. Absolutely horrible way of handling bookings—

very upset with the service provided here. me and my boyfriend made a whole trip revolving around us going horseback riding the final day. we arrive after we already had paid online, filled out the waivers and then one of the staff completely called me out in front of everyone asking how much i weighed and said that i couldn’t go and there would be no refund. mind you i am only 5 pounds over the weight limit (250 lb)

Disappointed. Took 2 days to send confirmation but only allow 2 hours to cancel. Despite not completing the form, they charge you and do not refund you. I do not recommend them. Take business to people that care about their customers.

Had a lovely trail ride at Mountain Creek Riding Stables, wish I would have booked a longer private ride! Sasha our guide was great and friendly taking my last minute same day booking. Staff was friendly and gave us a quick overview of basics before got on our horses. I don't think the reviews giving only 1 Star because of the weight limit is fair to the business, it states clearly on the website they have weight restrictions! Please think of the horses before complaining.

My wife and I did for this our anniversary. The staff was fantastic, they took their explaining everything. They made sure you knew the basics before starting out. The whole experience lasted 45 minutes, but the time flew. The staff actively talked with us during the ride, and even took pictures for us. This is definitely something we will do again. You do need to make reservations, but believe it is worth it.

Our two granddaughters came here with their young grandma. The little one went on the pony ride, and the other was on the horse ride. The workers were friendly and helpful.

The only negative was an aggressive push for tips. There is a big sign for it, and then they send an email after to ask for a generous tip.

We got there early and got to spend time looking around. The Waterfall trip was just the guide, my wife, and me. We are experienced riders so we got to go off trail and even trot some. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The horses were well kept and listened very well. Great job to everybody up there. We had fun
