It is peaceful and relaxing. Plus the views of... More

Fantastic facility! The owner, Mark, was very welcoming and friendly. All the horses were clean, healthy and ready to go. It is obvious that their care is top priority! We all received a briefing on how to control our horses and what to expect on the trails. The trails were beautiful, complete with ocean and valley views. The horses responded... More

I was not able to take my ride on the original date because of rain but was able to reschedule. Small business, very personal. Nice ride with three others. Not a lot of great views but the horses are well behaved.

I rode with my 10 year old horse-crazed daughter. Great ride through the woods. Muddy, but the horses were lovely and well behaved.

Beautiful ride. Great scenery. I honestly am tired of boring nose to tail rides but this does not feel like that with such gorgeous scenery and such a kind staff. Very laid back environment but I felt like my 6 & 9 yr old were very safe. We all had a terrific time. I was good with the 1.5 Hr... More

We went there with our two kids (11 and 6) and had a blast! None of us have a lot of riding experience (the kids have none!) but the horses were so good and well trained we didn't have to worry. Mark and Patty were super nice and really made us feel welcome. They were great with our kids, especially... More

Creating and sharing a horseback ride that most families are able enjoy was a key focus when we opened our stables 24 years ago! It is heartwarming to see we hit the spot, and that your daughter is "chomping at the bit" to come back! Make sure you let us know, as our repeat guests are offered a loyalty discount!... More

Join the ride on Oct. 4, 2016, we had a very enjoyable ride through the woods and then along the ridge with beautiful view of the ocean. Horses were very well behaved and the guides were very chatty.

Brought my granddaughter here a few weeks back. We both enjoyed the ride threw the backwoods and countryside and beautiful ocean view. The horses are very mild mannered and are pretty much on cruise control which makes it great for kids and adults of any age. A north shore must do!
