Great horses, great tour guide for our half hour tour. Only thing we wish we would've gone, it to go again before our trip ended!

He was entertaining ,laid back but still had his watchful eye on everyone on tour. He took care to be sure everyone was safe. We were just two,people together... More

We did a half hour horseback ride. My children are 5, 9, and 11. The horses were very calm and gentle. My son wanted his to gallop, but he didn't, and I was kind of glad because we are not experienced riders. Our guide was nice and fun. He did a back flip off his horse when our ride was... More

My husband and I were first attracted to the park for their low cost horse back riding. We arrived, only to find an even greater offer! They allow all active duty military members free EVERYTHING in the park! My husband got on all the attractions for free, family has to pay but it's a small cost to support such a... More

A ran down place with very fast bumper cars. We got the bracelet that allows you to do everything over and over again and the kids had a blast. They have these awesome cars that run down a big hill and was awesome.

Brought our kids 3-6 to the stables for our first ever horse back rides. We all had a very nice ride with a great instructor. The kids loved it and left smiling.

We were in town visiting Mammoth Caves and stayed a few nights at Jellystone. We saw Jesse James Riding Stables on the way to the caves and decided to stop after our tour to get information.
