Since I was on the front horse right behind our guide, I was able to enjoy conversation with him the whole way. My wife and kids were kinda on their own in that department. I thought they were having a great time because of all the laughter I heard coming from back there. But I found out that it was because my son's horse, Murdock, was passing gas the WHOLE way!! The horses were beautiful, but the ride was way too slow for me. Some of the views were absolutely beautiful. We saw a few coyotes out there too (I love seeing any kind of wildlife). I was very disappointed with the "stunning view" of Lake Tahoe. From where we were, we could BARELY see Lake Tahoe, and from what we could see, it really wasn't all that stunning. All in all, it was a good experience -- especially since none of us had ridden horses before. But I think I'll have to try a different place next time. In the end, I just didn't feel that we got our money's worth. We did tip our guide well, as you ALWAYS should, but next time I think we'll go with Zephyr Cove Corral. I don't think their horses will go any faster, but I just wouldn't do the same [kinda boring] trail ride twice.
