We had a great time. Andy really goes out of his way to ensure his customers enjoy themselves. For instance, he customized the ride according to our riding ability, which was great since we are experienced riders. At his suggestion, he also took pictures of the 3 of us on our horses with our cameras. Andy is knowledgeable and entertaining.... More

We took a two hour ride with our kids (7 and 10), us, and our parents (60s and 70s). Everyone had a great time. Andy was funny, informative, and great with the kids. Great views of the landscape. Us grown ups got to run ahead a bit every once in a while which was pretty thrilling. The horses were beautiful... More

Andy is the greatest! We took the four hour trip with just myself & my two children. Andy was wonderful with the children, taking time to point out animals & plants along the way. He was very patient, gearing the ride specifically to us! We had lunch at the "Robber's Roost", which in itself was an incredible experience. I realize... More

It was an awesome trip. We had 12 people in our group. All ages from 4 to 44. We all had a great time. The guides were very good and the horses were also. Scenery was fantastic. Seen lots of wildlife. We highly recommend Andy's for anyone who is looking for a great experience!

We met Andy and his helper Kady at Whispering Pines Campground. The horses were very well trained and cared for. We took a 4 hour ride through the forest, creeks and some pretty rough terrain that the horses handled amazingly. The scenery was breathtaking and we even ran into a herd of cattle and felt like we were part of... More

We would highly recommend Andy's! We called the phone number the day before and left a message, they called us right back and we made a reservation for the following day. We ended up with a private ride, our family of 3 plus 2 guides. The views were breathtaking and we saw lots of wildlife. This is no ordinary trail... More

The other members of our group were a brother and sister from Paris, France and a mother with two preteen daughters from Neb. Andy and his... More
