My wife and I did some horseback riding here for our 2 yr anniversary and had a really great time. We showed up a little early, signed in, and then walked over to where we were to meet our guide. Ron was a really genuinely nice man who made it a point to remember everyones name that was there (I believe there were six of us). There was a short wait while Ron prepared the horses and then assessed everyone's level of experience to assign us a horse that would fit each one of us the best. We did a 6 mile ride which was very relaxed and enjoyable. We felt very safe and Ron was always in the lead but made it a point to be very attentive to make sure everyone was ok and keeping up. My horse liked to try and be in the lead so I was right behind Ron the whole time. He really tried to pair couple together with horses that "liked" each other so they could be close together.
To be honest, if you are expecting A LOT of personal attention and a lot of "tour guide" stuff then this may not be for you. I feel like you have to be ok with handling the horse a little bit on your own and be ok with moments of silence and enjoying the fact you are outside and on a horse. Enjoy it, it's not something you get to do every day!
