The price was great for a hour-long ride, and the horses were gentle. We enjoyed a peaceful, serene ride through the property, but the guide could've been more interactive/talkative/informative/friendly. He basically just guided the horses through. I went years ago, and had a great guide...More

We had a fun ride Memorial day weekend. The staff was friendly, and the horses were beautiful. My only complaint is that our ride was supposed to be half an hour, and ibdont think it was quite that long. Would definitely go again!

The guide was awesome. He was funny, nice and experienced. The scenery was beautiful. My 8 year old daughter never rode before and did well by herself. The horses were tame and friendly.

This was a great ride through wood and meadow. Our guide gave us history on the trail in which we were riding, the old "Stagecoach Road". The horses were gentle and the ride thoroughly enjoyable.

Horses are well maintained and well mannered. Staff friendly and inviting. Beautiful scenery and country side location. Definitely recommend 1 hour or longer ride! Well worth it
