Best. Trail. Ride. Ever. I hardly know what else to say! As an intermediate rider, I look for something more in a trail ride than a dozen push-button horses walking nose-to-tail up a path. I booked a ride with Susie after reading rave reviews on yelp.com, and I wasn't disappointed. The ride was everything I hoped for and more.
I arrived early thinking I would get a chance to help with grooming, but wound up mostly brushing horses and talking to one of the assistants as I enjoyed the beautiful morning. The horses were all Arab mixes of various sorts, in terrific physical condition, obviously well cared for, and very well mannered.
We ended up being a group of 7, including Susie and one of her friends who served as co-leader. We had booked a 2-hour ride and Susie picked a perfect trail for one of the first hot days in a while - up through a beautiful stretch of redwood forest, topping out on a knob with a view to die for. We were able to trot and had some awesome canters - something I've not done on other trail rides. It was exhilarating! I didn't even mind the sore legs the next day :)
If you are looking for a riding experience tailored to your riding style and ability, in a small group through gorgeous country, with a courteous, professional, and very reasonably-priced leader, this is your place.
