We went horseback riding in August at Rainbow ranch. I have ridden since childhood -- usually a couple of times per year -- in Montana, Canada, Costa Rica and VA. LOVE Rainbow ranch -- their guide was great and the horses were well cared for. From an East Coast perspective, the ride was very inexpensive for the quality -- $45 for a 90 minute ride which included fording a river and some trotting. The guide was great with our kids (ages 6 and 9). Definitely a great place -- can't recommend highly enough.
