Went for a 2 hour ride on Friday January 26. So nice and pleasant. Just a smooth horseback ride out in the woods. Our guide Rob was excellent and his knowledge about the horses was outstanding. We will return. Thanks Dawn & Laura

Cactus jacks is an awesome place. The horses are well kept, the place is clean. Steph was my guide, she was fun, personable, and a great guide. It was a little chilly, but they were very accomadating. Check out the place you will enjoy it.
