I haven't been on a horse in quite some time and the crew at Seahorse were great. Registering was easy and quick. The instructions were detailed and well thought out. The guide was talkative and knowledgable and concerned for his riders. All round great experience.

If it is a rain out, or other weather-related cancellation, full refunds are available, as well as the option to reschedule--your choice. Thanks for your question. Hope to see you at the ranch soon.
