We had an incredible time meeting Mark and riding down the switchbacks and around more of the backcountry of Homer. It was certainly interesting to hear about Mark's stories and the hardships he endures from just existing out there. He's a cool dude.

Great Ride! We all enjoyed it so much. We are all pretty novice riders but we had no problems and I’m not even sore. Thank you Mark!

We took a horseback ride to the head of Kachemak Bay with 6 of our family members, which included a 3 year old. It was worth so much more than the $100 a person! The views were spectacular. We saw some wildlife including bald eagles,...More

Mark will take great care of you! The ride was several hours and we were definitely sore the next day though. The horses could handle themselves and didn't require any special skill to ride.
