I did the evening t bone steak ride with my boyfriend, and we had a great time! The night started with a 1.5 hour horseback ride led by a volunteer guide to a steak house where we had a wonderful dinner before riding back after sunset. Great night. You will not find a better price for 3 hours of horseback... More

Our guide was informative and took the time to make sure we were safe and hydrated. We went on a 2 hr ride but a 1 hr ride would have been better for myself because it was pretty darn warm even at 8 am. By the next day I could feel the butt and shoulder soreness. It was a wonderful... More

We had a great time. The staff is friendly and very personable. It was my sons first time on a horse, and they eased his fears.

I love this place 1st of all, because they have no weight limit, they have horses big enough for anyone. The price was extra affordable, excellent for beginners.

Called and got in for one hour ride the same morning. Staff were all friendly and helpful. They seem very well organized and got us going on our horses pretty quickly. There were 4 of us and unfortunately the second horse decided it was going to take its sweet time and not be rushed or else we could have all... More

I had a great time. I'm pretty sure I was the only person there going solo but that's okay. A lot of families were there with little kids and they all were having a great time as well. The staff made me feel super comfortable from the time I checked in. Their prices are reasonable and better than the other... More
