My wife and I spent several hours riding horses for her birthday. I couldn't recommend it more! Kristen did a great job and we thoroughly enjoyed riding on their property, as well as the adjoining National Forest Service property.

Our family had the best experience with Lynn and Kristen at our guided ride this week. They made us feel welcome and taught us more in 1 hour than any other horse rides we’ve done in the past. The kids cannot stop talking about it!...More
