We had a great ride! They provide headphones so you are able to hear what the tour guide is saying. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and didn't have any trouble with the horses besides them wanting to stop and eat grass.

We did a Saturday morning tour through the battlefield with Andie. She was a great tour guide and we all had the best time. We would definitely sign up to do this tour again and would certainly recommend it!
