I'm giving Jacks a good rating because their service was great. Very friendly and helpful and we got what we paid for.
With that being said here are some pluses, minuses and things to know.
Friendly staff ( even discounted price a little due to slower horse)
Very peaceful time and very relaxing.
On a warm day, I would b nice and cool with all the shade.
Very slow (we were passed by walkers). We had Maggie, great horse and got her due to us being new to horses. Don't go with Maggie...we watched some other buggies and the speed was great. ( don't forget you will pay per hour)
Not much to see...we did this because we didn't want to miss the rest of the island. Took a 2 hr trip on west side of island and back down thru the center. Lots and lots of trees. Nothing really new to see that you couldn't see by main street, arch rock and ,ission point area.
Cold....we went in sept. couldn't believe how cold it got back in the state park. ( felt 15 degrees colder). Wear a coat. Again a lot of shade.
People on here say slow...Im Ok with that. I wanted relaxing and slow. If you want o go fast rent a bike. If you want to be lazy...get a horse and buggy. Just know Maggie is über slow. Also don't feel like you will miss much if you don't get to back part of island.
So the final question...would I recommend, absolutely but hopefully you are now better armed.
