It was ok, but very disappointing for the younger kids. We had a group of 3 adults, 3 teenagers, and 2 toddlers. Some had never been on a horse before so they were very excited about the trip. We drove out to a farm house...More

Ride lasts about 45 minutes and costs $15 per person (cheaper for a tot double riding). There is a platform for getting on the horse which was very helpful for a person recovering from knee surgery. We would definitely go back.

We went to the stables and everyone was very friendly and the prices were reasonable. We went on a great trail with beautiful horses. My 7 year old rode by herself and thought it was the best thing ever. We will definitely be back!
