We've had our horses stabled at Valle Vista for several years now. The barn management knows how to take care of them, they are very happy there. Location is great, right on the trail.

My husband and I showed up with our 5 year old granddaughter. We were all beginners. Anyway when it came time to get on the pony for a 30 minute trail ride my granddaughter was frozen in fear. As this was her first time around live horses and ponies, they were a lot bigger than she had imagined and she was in a bit of shock! Terry and his crew were understanding and compassionate to our situation. Terry did not charge us for the missed 30 minute ride. I offered some compensation but Terry declined. He even suggested a Meet and Greet with the Horses were my granddaughter would get to groom, feed the horses and get familiar. Top Notch in my book! We will be back Terry!! Thank you!

The Valle Vista website includes photos that do not belong to the owner nor were taken at Valle Vista. When confronted, the owner said “you dumb bitch”. This is unacceptable behaviour and the owner does not deserve your business.

This business is now closed or operating under a different name..but is unsafe as proper guidelines of safety are not implemented and Horses are not cared for.

Just went for a trail ride a Valle Vista and had a great time! Despite there being a mix-up with our booking the staff were very nice and helpful and got us riding in a pretty short amount of time. It was my kids first time and the staff were so great with my nervous 7 year old, the ponies the kids rode were super gentle and the horses we adults rode were lovely as well. We will definitely ride there again!

I'm a special needs rider and staff and horses at Valle Vista are fantastic. They are always willing to help and assist. I wouldn't be riding without them.

Our daughter and her friend went on a trail ride for her 12th birthday. They both had an amazing time. The staff and ownership at the stable were all super friendly and amazing to deal with. They were very good with the kids and made it both a fun and educational experience. It was a day our daughter will not forget and she looks forward to her next experience at Valle Vista Stables.
