“A Great Time !”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

While staying at the Couples Resort we decided to do the horseback rides. This was arranged by Couples Resort and we really appreciated that they chose to do an extra ride as the day was booked. Allison, owner of the horses...was awesome. Her horses were gentle and we had no problems during our hour long ride. Will definately do again...thank you very much!

“Autumn trail ride”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

A short distance from the resort, the resort booked the trail ride and part of our final tab. The guide was the owner and very knowledgable. The ride took us in the surrounding countryside.

“Novices riding off into the rain”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Our guide Allison was very understanding as neither of us had ridden before yet this is something i had wanted to do for a while. My wife reluctantly came as well as she had a troublesome experience with a pony at a young age. We arrived in the rain and found out we were the only appointment for the day. Allison greeted us and introduced us to the horses in the stables. Each of them had names and it was so fun to see how each had their own personalities in such a short time.

After going through the safety and mechanics on how to direct our horse we saddled up, my wife using a nearby ramp to get on easier and I managed to mount without. Allison was very good in matching up our horses, as my wife had a larger softy of a horse named Rebel who seemed to be good with someone new to the whole scene. Though I had never rode a horse before either I was matched with a little more eager horse named Megan. We rode down the local street and onto the trail and was gone for a hour. It was just enough as we had a minor spook on one of the horses which in turn jolted each one and having never ridden it became a bit painful trying to stay in the saddle.

Allison answered all of our questions about the horses giving their ages and some of their personality quirks. We also found out that the stables operates dog sledding during the winter which we would love to do sometime. Though I would definitely go for another horseback ride as it was a memorable experience and we both had a fantastic time despite our lack of previous experience.

“Excellent customer service.”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

The customer service was outstanding. The owner is delightful and so is her father who took us out. The horses are well cared for and have excellent personalities. Only complaint is the trails are not exactly scenic for the most part.
