The people and the horses here are the best. Its a great location also. Lots of trails to ride on by Beaver Pond or up in the higher hills. This ride is great for beginners and advanced riders. Its a beautiful area.

We went on the trail ride to the Cowboy Dinner. I rate this event as a MUST DO if you are there during that time of year, hey, if there is snow, do the sleigh ride. You can't beat it!
