I went there with my boyfriend for our anniversery for a private trail ride. He had grown up around horses and he was missing being around them so I thought this would be perfect. I on the other hand have only seen a horse up close twice in my life let alone ride one. I picked A Step Above Stables because the other reviews I read about this place said they were excellent with kids and they all had an excellent tour guide (and they did not disappoint!). I called ahead to schedule my appointment (make sure its a couple of days in advance, they tend to book up pretty quickly) and I informed them that I had never ridden a horse in my life. When we arrived I was very nervous but they put me at ease. They gave me the biggest horse to ride, but he was also the most clam horse, not to say the others weren't. I asked one of the people working there to walk with me ridding the horse down the driveway because I was still very nervous and she was more then willing to help me out. Throughout the trail ride our tour guide kept on talking about the horses and he was more then willing to answer any questions we had (don't be fooled by his young age or youthful appearence, he knows what he's talking about). The hour that I had booked flew by very quickly and I really enjoyed my time there. I will be going back hopefully soon! The only thing that bothered me was that there was horse feces everywhere, on the trail I can understand but it was also on the driveway and the road. But other then that I could tell that these guys take really good care of the animals there and they are the primary concern which was really impressive.
