This is a great alternative to Holiday World and was a relaxing part of our trip. My daughters loved it so much we did it twice. The staff was friendly, I honestly think the whole town is, and very knowledgeable. The horses are well cared for and loved. I would highly recommend this for riders of all levels.

We had 6 people in our group, ages 8-48. It was great for beginners, this was our 8 year old first time horse back riding. It was a nice leisurely ride on calm horses. The staff was very nice, we went through the forest for most of the ride. I would do it again.

My 6 year old daughter has been begging to get a horse for months. This was her first trail ride. We took a 45 minute trail ride and she loved every minute. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. the staff put her at ease while trying something new. We did this 2 months ago and she still talks about it regularly. We will definitely do it again when we are in the area. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Grandpa was going to take granddaughter on her first horse ride. Grandpa got bit by his sister in laws dog and hand was in a splint. Not only did they completely understand the situation, refunded his horseback ride costs immediately, they took extra special care of the granddaughter who had to go on ride without family member. They made a note on the PayPal refund that they hoped he healed fast and that they had a horse waiting for him when he was ready to go!! Great experince overall!!
