The horses are well cared for and very well behaved. There were experienced and first time riders but David catered the ride to all of us. David took the time to get everyone coached up and made sure our beginner was comfortable and not afraid in each new thing she encountered. Cannot recommend highly enough. To top everything, David looked... More

I have ridden a couple of times with David in Southlake. The scenery is amazing and the horses very well behaved. David is extremely knowledgeable and patient! The hours pass by way too quickly! Looking forward to my next trip!

We found this activity on Trip Advisor and it is an excellent example of why Trip Adviosor is so good. All of the reviews of how good David is and how authentic the experience is can not be overstated. If you are looking to experience Texas hospitality and a realistic trail ride that is not the nose to tail walk,... More

I never ride before and I was nervous but the owner was so patient. We went on a 2 hour trail ride through the woods in Southlake and around Lake Grapevine. It was awesome. I highly recommend this company if you're traveling to the Dallas area. Of you live here It's a must do.

We had a great evening out on the trails with David! He worked beautifully with our 14 & 12 yr old sons, teaching them all along the way. It was a great time to just be out in nature on horses! Highly recommend!!!

As complete beginners and with my wife having a fear of horses, this might have been a nightmare.... but David is a great and patient teacher and we had a great time. A trail ride with just two couples meant we got personal attention and we quickly gained confidence - we even trotted a bit, although my rear end is... More
