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.

Took my husband who is a novice rider. I am an experienced rider and we both had an excellent day. Make sure you pack a lunch as it is a long day and you'll stop half way to eat and let the horses rest. You...More

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
