“Never again!”

Indian Grove Riding Stables
Reviewed August 18, 2014

We called to book and was asked to give a deposit. When we mentioned the stables were not close and we were on vacation, the lady said if we were from out of town (um, who isn't?!) we didn't have to, but to show up by 8:30am to ensure we can get on. When we arrived (early at 8:20am) we were told they were booked up and we should have come to give a deposit. Clearly disappointed (4 sad faces from our little ones) we told her that she said we would be fine and to just show up, no deposit necessary for out of town folk. This is when she became very rude and argumentative but offered for us to wait and see if someone didn't show up and the kids could still get on. Despite my better judgement, we waited-the kids were very excited to go riding. When we noticed others going up to pay (so it appeared no deposit either), one of the kids from our group commented to us that it didn't seem fair. The lady must have overheard her and then started hassling her and continuing to be rude with her (she's 12)! I heard her mentioning to another group they would get the horse that kicks and is a bit unruly. Ok, why would you have horses like that AT ALL for the public-often inexperienced riders? One family showed up late at 8:45 and she greeted them with "You're late!". The mother in the family stated they couldn't find runners and apologized. She continued to berate them and told them they were lucky they didn't give away their horses! Further, when one guest asked about a specific horse, she pointed to a skull on the ground and laughed. Don't ask if you don't want to know she said. Disgusting! Horse lovers everywhere should stay clear of this place! NEVER AGAIN!

I have no riding experience and felt safe always, horses are in good shape and well behaved. Guides were very experienced. Great for all ages
