We had the most perfect weather for our 9am mountain ride - horses were very well behaved and it was gentle enough for even the most inexperienced rider - would recommend but definitely book in advance as it's quite busy. Added bonus was a ticket...More

People need to call and ensure they have availability, not just show up like those people did for 25 minutes left before closing and were upset because they couldn't take an hour's ride. Doesn't make sense. They have no right to quibble. What if it's...More

We had two teenag teenagers and a 7yr old. At 25$ a person it was kind of expensive but a good experience for the kids. It's a good ways off of the beaten path but worth the drive.

Nice ride in a beautiful canyon along a stream. Our three year old rode with Mom. If you go in a winter snow four wheel drive is a big plus as you get near the stables.
