Romantic Sleigh Ride
My husband and I selected the Stables for a romantic 2-person Valentine Days sleigh ride. The Stables staff was very friendly and accommodating. You can tell by the staff’s interaction with the horses, that they are loved and well cared for. Many of the horse are rescues and are very friendly. The sleigh ride winds you through the property with nice views (great photo ops). Blankets, champagne and chocolates were provided. Nancy (our driver) was very knowledgeable about the property and welcomed any questions we asked.

Thanks Bob (our horse) and Nancy for a great ride!

While I was visiting Stables at the Farm by the River, I was taken for a tour of the farm and saw all of their horses. This place is located on the West Side Road. I was very impressed by their location and the choice of the horses to ride.

My boyfriend and I took a two-person sleigh ride while visiting the area. Our driver, Walter, was informative and friendly. Our horse, Bob, was adorable. All around a great experience.

The Stables at Farm by the River is a great place to stop on your trip or vacation to North Conway. My girlfriend and I went on the horseback riding trail for the hour tour, it was a very scenic trail with great views of the surrounding mountains as well as the river that runs through the property. The horses were great, and they even pick a horse that you would work with best. Highly recommended for those with no experience at all to those that are very experienced riders. They also offer sleigh rides in addition to horseback riding.
