“Don't miss”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

I loved this ride. The certified guide was wonderful. You can really understand what was happening when you are out on the ground where the battle was fought. They give you a radio headset so you don't miss anything. He does answer questions. The ride was safe if you are a beginner or an experienced horseman. All riders are mounted from a mounting block which makes it easy for amateurs. The intersperse experienced riders with the less experienced to ensure control. I did get a guide to ride around in my car later, but I learned so much more here.

“Great and enjoyable tour”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

This was a fabulous tour and ride! Not only was it informative, but safety was a foremost issue. The horses were very easy going and knew the way, but did not make a mad dash for the barn on the return. We had a party of five, two of which were teen age girls. The comments from them was that it was such an enjoyable and peaceful ride they wished it were longer. We only did the 1 hour ride as we didn't know how the young teens would have taken to two or more hours, but next time it will definitely be the longer tour.

The guide, (we did the audio) was very informative and the grounds were easily identifiable from horseback.

The ride was actually about a half hour longer than we had expected, and we could have gone for more.

Thank you all at Artillery Ridge! This was a wonderful Gettysburg experience.

“Things you will not see or experience in a vehicle!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Take some time from your heroic trip and make an appt to ride through the battlefield on horseback. The people are skilled and make your trip pleasant and safe. You will hear the sounds of the war in your ears and your eyes will see what the soldiers saw as you ride.

“GREAT exeperience......”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

On a horse you travel thru the same places that the union and confederate soldiers were. You get the full impact of the feeling for the battlefield. This is a must experience, and you will not get the same feel from a car or a bus as you do when your actually riding the same trails that they rode back then. The guides were very knowledgeable and the horses were the best.
