“I can't say enough good things about the staff”
Review of Dutch Creek Trails

Dutch Creek Trails
Reviewed July 6, 2014

There were eight in our group and as we were saddling up, my 8 year old granddaughter started to freak out and not want to ride. I'm not sure why, she had been on horses before. They did a wonderful job of calming her down and getting her to agree to go on the ride. At the end, she said she was glad she went and wants to go again.

The ride was very enjoyable and the horses were great. I highly recommend Dutch Creek for a trail ride.

This trip was a wonderful experience for the whole family. From 7-65 years old...we all had fun!
Taylor was a wonderful guide. Staff made you feel like part of the family. From start to finish one of the most memorable parts of our trip!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon with the staff at Dutch Creek Trails. Our youngest (age 11) has Asperberger's and doesn't take to well to new experiences. He seemed hesitant to try horseback riding, but was willing to give it a try. Well, within minutes, he was having a meltdown and had jumped off his horse! Travis and Keith both handled the situation with humor and kindness that he decided he would get back on the horse. Travis continued to keep a close eye on him to make sure he was doing well. Our son told us that he felt much better after riding for five minutes and he was very happy he got back on the horse. Without such great staff, the day could have potentially been very disappointing for the other three in our family who never road before. Thanks Keith, Travis, and Matt! It was a great day!!

My two girls ages 8 and 10 very much enjoyed their first horseback ride! Keith was very nice, as were the rest of the family that runs this outfit. They were wonderful with kids. The location is gorgeous and our ride was actually a bit longer than promised, which was great. The girls really loved the tractor ride to and from the stables and the friendly dog Annie. The location is really convenient to Blowing Rock, Boone, and Linville, and close to Valle Crucis. A fabulous experience that we hope to do again!
