It was a great horseback ride! Of course, horses will be horses. But, they're well trained and well behaved. Our guides Sondra and Jackie were wonderful guides throughout the trail. Definitely recommend it.

Great trail ride! Nice friendly staff! Daughter enjoyed being able to get out and ride horses while we were in Destin! Would definitely do it again! The donkey is about as nice as can be! He just wanders around place.
