Such a kind man! The trail ride group waited for us to arrive (with permission from the other riders) after traffic held us up for over an hour! Willie took his time with us on the trail. Interesting chats while exploring and uses his business as a ministry! 100% recommend!

We took the tour and it was our best desition ever. Most important is the way Willie treats and takes care of the horses. The horses are well trained and are easy to handle, for begginer riders. My girfriend and I were the only ones on the ride, as other groups cancelled last minute, I would like to say that... More

My daughter is 12 and we wanted to find a trail ride for her that wasn't pricey but wasn't being led around on a pony. Mr. Will Stricker was fantastic. He's been a ranch hand, and on horses, all his life. The horses you ride are his - he takes good care of them, and they are gentle and "rein-broke"... More

We have now been twice to ride horses at Striker Trailrides. We live 3 hours away, we go have a wonderful time, then turn around and drive home. Willie is so enjoyable, and the horses are so tame and we'll taken care of. If you want the best trailride ever, go to Striker Trailridss. So worth it....

We visited San Antonio to get together with college friends. We couldn't have been happier with Stricker Trail Rides. Willie was so patient and put up with our shenanigans. One of us had never ridden and Willie put her behind him and on Annie, a very sweet horse. We had a great ride and the Willie attempted to teach us... More

Beautiful and Scenic Trail Ride through the Texas Hill Country! Willie is an amazing cowboy who's stories and experiences will keep you entertained. His horses are beautiful and broken in for all skill levels. It was an unforgettable and unique experience that will not be forgotten. I highly recommend Stricker Trail Rides and will be back soon!
