It was so awesome to ride in a wagon being pulled by big beautiful horses. They take you up to your property, feed you, have entertainment and see the beautiful mountains. So fun for the whole family.

Yes. they usually have to have a full wagon. However, you can call them to make arrangements. They are very accommodating.
