My fiance and I came here for Valentine's Day and loved it! He had only ridden a horse once, and I've been riding since I was nine, but none of that had anything to do with our experience.

What did? The healthy, happy, well-trained horses with their still-furry winter coats... The chatty, personable trail leader (Dixie, maybe?)... The VIEWS... the drive around the area... the sunny, warm morning weather.... the feeling of being in the saddle after a year of sitting at desks in grad school... the friendly people and private owners at the stable...

We can't wait to go back, especially for one of their last-sunday-of-the-months trail rides with champagne brunch and wine tasting. Trail rides are $45, these special events are $80; worth every penny for every sniff of horsey smells and every ache I'll have tomorrow!

Me and my friend went up there this weekend and had a good time. The staff was really friendly and super nice. The horses that you ride were super friendly a d had no problems with them. And the views were stunning :) Definitely will be going back there!

Garrods Farm is located in the Saratoga hills next to an open space preserve, with breathtaking views of the South Bay area and Santa Cruz mountains. The farm is quite old, having a stable from 1903 still standing, however modern riding ranks have been added since. There has to be more than 200 horses on the farm, both privately boarded as well as those used for rental and classes.
Generally the staff is welcoming and attentive, however we have also been greeted in a somewhat unengaged or even rude manner a couple of times.
I would however recommend the place for anyone who wish to see the open space preserve from a horseback - the nature is absolutely stunning.

My daughter and I take an annual treck to Garrod Farms, early in the morning, when the air and the horses are fresh. The people, trail guides, horses and atmosphere is friendly, clean, welcoming and professional.
