For a surprise for my husband on our anniversary I booked a 1 hour trail ride. It was wonderful. I have only redden a horse once before and it was not a great experience. This experience was perfect. The owner was wonderful to work with and the girls who lead our ride were knowledgeable and so encouraging and helpful. The horses were beauties and well cared for. The trail ride was not just a ride on a loop trail but an actual walk throughout the wood, through creeks and hills etc. It was beautiful, scary and wonderful. I can not wait to do it again. And my husband grinned throughout the ride and was thrilled. he wants to do an over night trail-ride this coming year. On-line booking was easy and the communications were easy as well! Can not wait to go again!
