Wonderful 2 hour ride on the battlefield. Guide is very thorough. Horses are typical trail horses, extremely gentle and easy to ride. Would do this again!

This place looks a little run down but the two hour horseback tour was wonderful! They take the time to make sure you are comfortable and safe on the horses and the tour guide was very knowledgeable.
