The A-OK Corral was an enjoyable experience for our 4 hour trail ride. Jenny was very friendly, very attentive about returning my calls, answering questions, and scheduling our ride. All the staff was friendly and accommodating.

Our trail guide, Brian, was very friendly, personable, aware of our group at all times, and made sure girths were tightened along the trail. He talked about the local ranches' history and other points of interest. The ride had beautiful views, creek crossings and a great creek lunch setting. The horses were enjoyable trail horses.

I highly recommend A-OK Corral/Horse Creek Ranch for an enjoyable trail riding experience!

The last time I was on a horse was 1986 but I knew that if I was going to try horseback riding on vacation, Wyoming was probably a good place to "get back in the saddle". We signed up for the 2 hr ride which was perfect for us. Our guide, Tara, was great and we felt safe as she stopped and checked our saddles, girths and stirrups several times during the ride. The horses knew what to do so it was easy to relax and enjoy the amazing scenery. I highly recommend A-OK for novice/beginners/first-timers and promise you won't be disappointed.

Incredible. It is well staff and the horses are beautifully cared for. They have a LOT (45) horses so they are not over worked. The guide made sure we knew all he proper commands for the horses even though they are so well trained minimal assistance is needed from the rider to the horse. You ride in a line formation so it is easy to keep track of people. The guide put the our kids 12 &14 right behind him so he could monitor them and I could monitor behind them. 2 hours tour was incredible. Worth every penny spent for the views. (Just a suggestion to take a cash tip for your guide as a nice gesture)

You get what you pay for. My 2-hour trail ride cost $105, almost half of other ranches in the area. As a lifelong trail rider, I was shocked that none of us were given helmets. This is the first time in my 55 years of riding that I rode without a helmet. The guides all seemed bored, as did the horses. It appeared that the ranch has a limited number of trails, which might explain the appearance of boredom. While our guide was pleasant, he didn't seem to care that the 82 year old person who was second to last in a row of 7 horses couldn't hear him due to hearing loss, and he made little effort to connect with the riders. When we got back to the ranch, the guides also didn't seem to connect in any way with the horses. It all felt so routinized that it lacked joy. And joy is one of the main reasons I ride!

We read the reviews of a ok corral and were excited for a fun ride, but wound up leaving 10 minutes in due to safety concerns. To start, I rode horses for 15 years and have worked at a half dozen stables, so am very experienced in safety protocols and normal horse behavior. We drove up and I immediately noticed children (aged 6-10) riding without helmets, people riding in shorts and no questions about what levels riders were when assigning horses. We decided to give them a chance and started the ride, it was 4 adults and 2 children with one guide. We started riding along a road and all 5 horses except mine were constantly eating, with the guide waiting up front doing nothing to help. When she stopped 10 minutes in to check saddles my boyfriends horse walked across the road to get better grass, and as a beginner he couldn’t get the horse back and they just let it keep wandering. At this point I called it and asked for a refund and for us to go back as there was no way we would enjoy this ride. I think most of these problems could have been avoided with a second guide on the ride and better safety protocols, but they seem to feed on tourists who do not know better and are just happy to find a cheap place to ride last minute. I feel bad leaving this review as I know they are small and family owned, but I seriously feel like it’s only a matter of time before someone gets hurt. As far as positives go, their horses looked well cared for and I think they could have a good operation if they enforced some basic safety rules and had 2 guides on rides with beginners, even if that meant they had to charge more. Finally, even though they gave me a receipt for the refund it never went through and I had to dispute it with my credit card company, but I’m not sure if that was intentional or not on their end.

We had a great experience with the trail ride from A OK Corral. I chose this outfitter primarily because the online reviews made it clear they had helmets available for kids. We took our 7 and 9 year olds, neither of which had ever been on a horse. For beginners, it was a great ride. We only did a 1 hour ride, and it was just about right for our family.

The real stand out here was our guide, Rebekah. She was engaging and entertaining, especially for the kids. The initial part of the ride (along the road and Snake River isn’t particularly interesting), but she made it fun for everyone. Our kids are looking forward to watching for her later in the week at the rodeo.

More experienced riders might find it a little boring (although the longer rides might be significantly more interesting and challenging), but for our family of beginners, it was great.

While our trip to Jackson was during a very busy time, the folks at AOK Corral were very helpful and accommodating to our schedule. When we arrived, the guide and the horses were ready to go. Aside from one person in our party, we were complete novices when it came to anything horses! The horses were delightfully well-trained.
We wound through the trees and up a mountain. The scenery was lovely! When we began our ride the weather was fine, but as we approached the top of the mountain a storm arose. Teresa (We adored her!), our guide was so calm, upbeat and reassuring as we continued our ride back to the corral. She kept checking with us to make sure we were okay to continue; that we felt safe and secure. When we arrived back at the corral, all of the young guides were there to help us dismount and get us out of the rain. What a great team! This experience is one we will remember for years to come! Teresa, you've found your calling!

We went on the one hour trail ride with Morgan. She was fantastic at engaging our 6 and 8 year old daughters and making them feel like they were part of the experience. We enjoyed the views and all four of our horses were calm and steady. Great for our family! The girls wanted to do it again the next day!

We did the two hour ride with my older sons (11 and 13). We are all pretty new to riding horses, but also wanted to actually see something. This fit that bill. As in most things like this the horses are slow and follow a predictable path, but this one felt a little bit adventurous with some steep up and down going through woods and getting some up high views. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and the staff was very accommodating.

Highlight of our family vacation. We had a 2 hour riding lesson on 23 May 2022 and Cassie and Noah were our instructors. They are both incredibly skillful on their horses and have such warm and friendly personalities. They made us feel at ease on our horses even though it was our very FIRST time on a horse. I got to ride Little Jake, my husband rode Bruster and our son rode Batman. Exceptional views, fantastic experience! 5 out of 5 stars. If you are ever in this area and looking for a fun activity - this would be it!
