I loved the ride but we could have gone faster. Although they did not know how experienced you are so they kept you at a slower pace. They are the cleanest,and nicest people that you could ride with. . They helped you down if you needed it and they let me lead the horses back to the stables. We saw wild life on the trail, like Turkey vultures. The horses are calm when you are riding them, and accommodate so many new riders easily. Over all it was a very good experience and I suggest you go there, it is a lot of fun.😍😍😀😀🤗🤗🐎🐎

Expect a true trail ride through the woods on wonderfully trained horses. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and appreciated the professional yet friendly staff. Can't wait to visit here again.

This was our third year returning for a trail ride during our annual Williamsburg vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful trail ride and Melissa's nature expertise. The horses are so well cared-for and easy to ride. Thanks for another great experience for our family!!

So Lakewood Trails is about the only horseback riding place we could find near Williamsburg. They are run out of Stonehouse Stables which is a pristine horse ranch. Safety is important and they carry it to an extreme with lots of rules like rinsing your shoes in disinfectant, and slow walking with no trotting at all on the trail, no cell phones, etc. Yes, you're in an English saddle, wearing a helmet, but they don't even instruct you how to sit in the saddle and use your legs to balance. It's very different from western riding! They show you how to hold the reins but how to sit in the saddle is important too! Two of us were very experienced English riders and they wouldn't even break out of the very VERY slow walk in the ring to let us try a slow trot. The trail isn't great and you do a loop around a little pond at a VERY slow pace. The trail leader didn't try to engage us in any conversation. She just turned around every minute to make sure we were all following. The horses are healthy and a great ride, but even they wanted to move faster! They almost forgot to offer to take pictures of us at the end, until someone reminded them. So, maybe this is a good ride for beginners on an easy, flat trail. All in all it was disappointing and I'd say that they're really not that experienced doing trail rides.
