“Will go again and again”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

I had not been horse back riding in years, what a pleasant surprise. The horses were well cared for, and the stables were immaculate. Rob our guide was a real "host"! I can't wait to bring my grandchildren there.

“Awesome time!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Took wife and daughter for a trail ride and had fabulous experience! Owner - Rob was attentive and very courteous. We rode with another family. We had only ridden once before elswhere and our daughter had never rode all by herself, but Rob was very patient and diligently sized everyone up and paired each with a lovely horse. The horses all liked to stop and grab a bit of greens to munch on during the ride, but it was all good. It was fairly hot out in the sun that day - maybe 88 degrees or so, but much cooler and very comfortable in the wooded trails. We were accompanied by his two dogs who scouted the trails ahead and behind us and were fun to watch as they explored and were playing during the ride. Rob took us by a waterfall and we crossed a couple of streams with the horses. Be sure to secure your sunglasses and hats - as some of ours fell off during the ride. No problems though of any kind and reasonably piced. A great way to clear your head and just enjoy nature and check out our ancestors mode of transportation! Highly recommend and will definitely be back when in the area.

Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Definitely check out this clean and professional stable! Rob the owner was so kind and gave great instructions. Paige, our guide was really fun and took great care of us on the ride. We went on the 1.5 hour morning ride and it was a wonderful time.

“Good times!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Nice scenery and well kept stables. The day we went it had been raining for days and the ground was very muddy. The horses tried to avoid the mud which made it a challenging ride at times. Otherwise all the horses were well mannered and the guides very pleasant. The waterfall is very pretty too.

“Gitty up, cowgirl”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

My family and I have horseback rode in Las Vegas and I have to say our 1 1/2 hour trip on horseback here was 100 times better! The guided tour was very informational about the surroundings and beautiful at that! I would HIGHLY recommend Chunky Gal Stables and the staff was just as amazing. Thank you for your better than best service.
