The horses are well taking of and trained. The staff was super friendly and patient. David was our guide, he was awesome. So patient with a family with children who never rode horses before. I definitely recommend!

Having hiked in the mountains we thought we’d take it easy and let the horses do the walking. The horses were beautiful and well trained. The staff were friendly and seemed to know each horse by name, and there are a lot of horses. The...More

$26.50 for a 45 minute ride, $52.50 for a 1 1/2 hour ride, and $70 for a 2 hour ride. The rates are per person. This information is straight from their website.
