I have done this trail ride over a dozen times with family and with international colleagues. Jeff and Dave cowboy up and give guests the authentic trail experience. My family is comfortable with horses and we have as much fun as my colleagues who have never been on a horse. This is a go to experience for new guests to... More

As complete beginners and with my wife having a fear of horses, this might have been a nightmare.... but David is a great and patient teacher and we had a great time. A trail ride with just two couples meant we got personal attention and we quickly gained confidence - we even trotted a bit, although my rear end is... More

These guys know what they're doing. We are very experienced riders (my wife and son play polo and take riding lessons weekly), so we are hard to impress. We have had two awesome outings with Jeff, and are anxious for our third. Great trails (the dried creek beds are SO much fun to traverse), wonderful horses, excellent knowledge and just... More

We had a great time on our trail ride. Daniel is a real cowboy and we learned so much about the area from him during our ride. The horses are beautiful and clearly well cared for, and very mild tempered and friendly. Highly recommended!

I scheduled a ride for my girlfriend and I on her birthday. David was extremely kind and courteous. He quickly gaged our riding skills and made the ride safe and enjoyable. I highly recommend these trail rides.

These guys are great! We were only in town two days but Jeff accommodated our schedule. This was no pony ride around a paddock. After the recent floods the regular trails were under water, so Jeff and his son Will took the time to scout out a trail that took us well off the beaten path and made this a... More

Booked a ride with David for just me and my sister (David was able to accommodate us for the very next day)...and it was great! Both of us were somewhere in between beginner and intermediate, and I felt like the ride was tailored to our skill level. Was really nice to be able to do a small private ride, and... More

We had an awesome day of riding. Widowmaker Trail rides is the best we have ever done. David was a great guide, it was a beautiful trail through the woods to the lake. The horses were great, very gentle with my 8 year old daughter. Two hour ride was about as much as we could handle. We will definitely be... More
