We took the little one there as he loves horseback riding, they took out a horsey and took him to walk in the forest for about 20 minutes, and the whole experience was so comfortable and easy going. It was great we would love to come back again. They really have experience teaching, including kids.

Beautiful fall day, great area to go horseback riding!! Arrived early and was shown around by the niece. Lots of beautiful horses! We experienced getting our own horses ready to ride which was a fun experience but by the time it was all done, there was only about 20-30 minutes left to actually ride. It is overpriced for what you... More

My family booked a trail ride here. My daughter and I are experienced riders, as we own and show horses. My husband and son are not. The owner, yelled at my husband and son, making them post the trot which they could not do, also their stirrups were positioned way too long. It was not fun, expensive, and we saw... More

Save your money for a place that will take the time to make sure you enjoy your ride. If you want a 'cowboy chase' type experience then by all means go for this place, but don't expect to have a relaxing and pleasurable time. The owner is dry and somewhat pushy and made me feel like I was a burden... More

Please do not visit this place to ride. Sleight rides are good, but not horseback riding. Owner is very brisk, impatient and its his way or no way when it comes to riding the horses. My friend and I payed 80$ each for a "riding lesson" then 10 minute very difficult trail ride, when the trail ride was suppose to... More

My partner and I went on a sleigh ride at Equitation Jacques Robidas through Manoir Hovey, the hotel that we were staying out for the weekend. I take it that a sleigh ride is the smallest of the services they provide – most people were there to learn how to ride horseback at a very elementary level. Even though this... More

Incredible sleigh rides through the woods in the snow ❤️ We were toasty warm under the blankets, and enjoyed the scenery

There is nothing more magical than a sleigh ride in the woods after a fresh snowfall. Even the horses seem to love it. Mr. Robidas is a wonderful, bilingual, kind and informative man and he obviously cares a great deal about his horses. The horses are real characters. They know the sleigh ride "routine" so well that they stop automatically... More

Our thirteen year old granddaughter loves riding, but does not have the opportunity to go very often. She spent two mornings with Jacques, and his instruction and guidance were unlike any she has experienced in the past. He gave her a sense of what it is to be one with the horse, and I believe she saw that riding can... More
