We drove up to the stables and was greeted by a really nice man. We had a really good hour ride. We most likely will go back there for another ride. The horses are really gentle and sweet

We had a great family outing with Ms.Amanda. Mr. David was very flexible in accommodating our large last minute group. We had several small children ranging from 3-9, he ensured safety was first. Definitely recommend this stable.
