The staff here are friendly, laid back, and welcoming. They make you feel at home. We did the small petting zoo, which is $3. All of the animals are friendly and look well cared for. Would definitely recommend.

It lasts only one hour, but it's simply unforgettable! The horses are amazing, and Canaan Valley looks absolutely beautiful! And it's my first ride when my horse didn't stop to eat...I thought wow, they must feed them very well! :)

I'm grinning just reading this! Watching the kids explore the Adventure Cave is such a fun time. We're so glad you and your family enjoyed this! If you're out there again this summer, please stop by! We'll have a horse waiting on you!
