My new wife and I recently honeymooned at Crystal Springs Resort. Food and ambiance were quite good. Our suite was also above average. The highlight of our stay however, was our horseback ride. The cost was modest. Shuttle service provided free door to door transportation. The horses we rode, Montana and Murph were so beautiful and well behaved, it's hard to do them justice with a few sentences. To be sure, these are not the "hacks" you so often get on a trail ride. I think Montana is about seven years old and full of spirit. As we rode, the director's dog, a fire cracker of a Jack Russell named Cody, scouted the trail before us and was a pleasure to have around. The director of the ride was very capable and a true pleasure to spend time with. Her horse, Blue, is named for his beautiful blue eyes.
I've never felt compelled to write a review before but our experience with the horses at this resort needed to be shared. Don't miss this opportunity!!!
