I did this ride today with my boyfriend. The horses seemed like they were well taken care of. I loved the fact that we could ride alone. I felt safe and the views were great. All of the male workers seemed friendly and happy to be there. On the downside, the ride didn't take quite an hour even with us stopping several times to take pictures, and there was a blonde lady working there who seemed very high strung, picky, and not very friendly. Overall, I liked it and feel like it was not a waste of money like many of the attractions in the area.
