“Outstanding with children...exceptional!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

The staff was excellent. The entire staff was great with the kids. "Slim" was our guide and was over the top. He was very patient with our kids as one of them was a little scared and nervous. We did the hour tour. Great scenery and beautiful horses. Can't say enough about five oaks!!!

“Highlight of the trip, ask for Slim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

We decided to go horseback riding to do something different. I have only ridden a handful of times and my kids have never ridden. My 11 year old was very nervous and scared and we almost called it off. But after reassurance from the staff and our guide Slim, she put on a brave face. Slim had her ride right behind him and after going down the first hill, she relaxed. We did the hour ride and if was very fun. The views are amazing. The horses did well considering the trail was pretty muddy. I would definitely recommend!

We had a large (7 adults 2 child) group and were accomodated from beginning to end. Nicole was nice, patient, and helpful. Jerry was a great guide as well. Must do when in town.

“Time well spent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

I am on vacation from Charleston, SC this week, and my family stopped here. I was uneasy at first because horses aren't my favorite thing, but I had a great time and really enjoyed the trail. It was a little expensive for the hour ride, but worth the memories made. And the staff is very friendly. Thanks y'all!

“Good time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

My 17 year old daughter and I went on the 1 hour trail ride. It had rained all week to the trail was very wet and muddy. We had no issues at all with the horses. Mine was a bit stubborn, but if I had that kind of weight on my back, I would not be happy either. :)
Staff was very friendly and helpful. They seem very concerned about the safety and enjoyment of their guests.
