Fun horseback ride with friends. We booked a 2 hour ride. Our receptionist, Stevie and guide Bobby were great! The horses were well behaved and well cared for. Great way to spend a few hours in the woods!

I'm definitely one of the few who thought this trail was terrifying. From the beginning your horse is walking 2 feet from the ledge. I thought once we got out of the main area it would be just a walk through the forest but it...More
