13 year old and mom enjoyed this ride ALOT! If you don’t like to ride (I don’t) there is not much to do at the corral, so consider leaving and coming back while the family rides.

Not your typical 'head for the barn' line walking horses who are oblivious to the rider on their back's instruction. Wife and daughter had a nice ride in a group of only 6. Reservations needed. Friendly and well staffed. Riders must be over 6 years...More
