Went horse back riding with my husband and kids (kids' age 10 and 12). None of us had any experience at all so we were all kind of excited about it. Nothing to be nervous about at all. I forgot the name of the guy...More

We chose this barn because of its proximity to our rental and smaller size. We were not disappointed! The setting is beautiful and family lovely. Myself (a beginner) and my 10yr old daughter (an experienced rider) took a 1hr ride. We both had a great...More

The hospitality of this family owned stable makes it highly recommendable! We are not very experienced horse riders, and even so they definitely made the 2 hour tour a good experience. The stable is placed in a beautiful area. They also offer accommodation in nice...More

Hello, My sister and I are going to be in the neighborhood on Saturday or Sunday May13 and 14. We live in the United States, Minnesota for my sister and Florida for me. We would really like to go riding while there. I've always wanted to experience the "tolt" gait on an Icelandic pony. I noticed your tour in Trip Advisor and am very excited to be able to ask you if we can ride with you when we are there. If so, what are the times available for the weekend? We would like to go out early in the morning, if possible. We ride occasionally--meaning on vacations and are both comfortable on a horse. Thank you very much. Hoping to hear from you soon.
