It was my Granddaughters first time riding and she was thrilled with the experience. The staff was great, making her feel comfortable and at ease. They gave basic instructions on how to handle the horses which was very helpful. The ride was scenic and enjoyable. I recommend Paradise to anyone looking for a leisurely and fun experience.

My friends and guides name was Sarah and my horse name was Platinum. Sarah was great and giving us background and fun little facts about all the horses in our ride that afternoon. It was... More

This place was pretty standard for horseback riding. We enjoyed our time here a lot. The barn cat is adorable and very friendly. The horses were all nice and well behaved. Now, there is no trotting or anything like that here--but the place is advertised as being the best for beginners, and people with not a ton of experience, so... More

It was not our fault that it rained the all three days that we were there. We all have horses of our own ,and never think of riding them on slippery rocks. They would not refund our money. What makes them think we would use a gift card and go to a hell hole that they have. One of the... More

We visited today despite the mixed reviews. Really it was the only place that would take my daughter at age 7 at 48 inch tall. Other stables said their minimum for height was 50 inch. When I asked why they did, I was told because they had special gear for kids less than 50inch. That paired with the low cost... More
