“Staff training session gone bad!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

It seemed like a trip with a lot of potential as the area has beautiful views. The owner spent too much time training his staff and we spent over an hour getting ready and very little time on the trails. There was an unforeseen issue with shooting targets being set up along the trail and the fake animals scared the horses. It was a very unenjoyable ride and when it came time to pay we were unhappy with how the owner handled feedback. The rates should have been adjusted more for the training and shortened ride.

“what a fun time!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2011

it was mine and my girlfriends first time riding horses and it was an incredible time. peter the owner was fantastic and really knew how to make our visit memorable. we probably spent a half hour or so just getting to know all the horses... feeding them, petting them, and then after everyone was comforable we were taught how to ride them. not just how to sit on the horse but actually ride the horse by giving it directions. we spent at least 20 minutes just riding and learning before we actually hit the trail. i cant say enough. the view and experience will last a lifetime!
