Tyler was an awesome guide and didn't mind answering our questions. He showed us several things I had never seen before even as a young child. We will be back and most definitely ask for Tyler

Hi Janet! We are extremely sorry this affected your trip. Unfortunately, not everyone is as honest as you are- so a posted age limit results in dishonest people lying about their child's age. Our age guideline is around 10 years old and is in place...More

Hi Shelilah! As long as they're big and strong enough to handle steering and stopping a horse, kids 10 and up can ride their own horse by themselves. We do not require an adult to accompany children, but we strongly... More
