Did the evening ride which is shorter than the day rides so doesn't go as far into the mountains. Total riding time was about 1 1/2 hours on a narrow switch-back trail in the woods so not a lot as far as views and unfortunately not a lot of animal sightings. The overall experience was fine; guides and staff were friendly, horses were safe and appeared well-cared for, but the pace was excruciatingly slow for the entire ride. I understood from their website that it was a "nose-to-tail" ride, but was hoping for a bit more action (maybe some brief trotting to liven things up?) as there were a few flat sections where this could be accomplished. If you are nervous around horses or totally inexperienced this lack of speed is a good thing, but if you are an experienced rider you might want to see if you can make other arrangements with them or a different outfitter. Also, I wouldn't advise getting there 30 minutes before your ride starts as they advise--maybe 5 or 10 minutes tops--as our group waited a full hour before we were actually on our horses (we got there the requested 30 minutes early and then were the last group to be saddled up). Oh, and wear something nice--they have a photographer who takes your photo at various times throughout saddling up and early in the ride. I didn't check out the photos afterwards as we were in a hurry to get to dinner so not sure about the pricing.
