Ron, was awesome. Not an easy ride as I have not been on a horse in 7 years but worth the time and money. My friend and I had a great time. Ron and his wife are the best.

You'll have to call the stables. You can find their phone number on their website. Or you can also make a booking on line. That's what I did the last time we rode.
