We reserved the 2 hour ride and it was completely full. I highly recommend reservations. The wranglers were very knowledgeable but we were in the center of the pack of horses and could not hear the history and other information very well. The wrangler in the back shared some of the information but not all. The ride was actually 2.5 hours and the horses were perfect for beginners. Both kids did really well. Loved the rock climbing with horses!!
