Reviewed June 15, 2012

A most enjoyable experience. I hadn't been on a horse in 46 years. Fun doing it again, and the guides were great.

“Great for the kids”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

Not a huge stable, but great side activity for the kids, with a petting zoo of typical farm animals, and pony rides, very nice to have near a luxury destination like Grand Geneva.

I was the only horseback rider during this tour which was nice. My guide Jessica was very friendly as well as my horse Sierra. It was a nice and relaxing tour. Highly recommend it.

“Bring Cash or Check”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

The day was booked by 1pm. $30 a ride for 7 or older - no double riders. $8 pony rides for 6 and younger. We couldn't do it since we had a mixed age group.
