My daughter and I stayed at Timber Ridge Lodge for her birthday and she was excited to visit Dan Patch Stables down the road. She loved the trail ride and watching all the horses during our visit. The staff was very friendly and nice. We will definitely be back again!

Had a sleigh ride scheduled for 12/11/16 and it had just snowed 8-9 inches so it was perfect. Unfortunately, when we called to confirm some things shortly before our ride we were told our ride had been cancelled. When were you going to let us know? They said they hadn't taken the time to prepare the course and there was... More

We went on the trail ride through the property, it was just ok. My son was bored with it all, nothing to see on the ride other than trees. The horses are beautiful & well kept, the other animals are in outdoor pens, mostly just laying around. Not much else to see or do here.

Went to Dan Patch Stables for a fun horseback ride with a friend. We had a fun time and our guide was very nice. The horses are beautiful and trail was very scenic. Nice break from the city, definitely coming back again.

Did the haunted hay ride with young children ages 5 and 1. They both made it through unscathed. During the day it is a great place to go and see farm animals up close. The donkey is awesome.

We took 5 girls, age ranging from 13 - 16 to the Haunted Hayride. It was a beautiful Fall evening; full moon with a slight chill in the air. The girls had a blast on the hayride. Not too scary, but the 20 minute ride into the woods was...as they described as "a blast." Meanwhile, my husband and I waited... More

This place is definitely worth a visit if you're in Lake Geneva with kids. The horses are gorgeous. The petting zoo is small but my 6 year old didn't care. Very fun.

Horses are so pretty. People running it and the guides were very nice and informative. Very helpful for us amateurs. Trail a little rough in some spots for the horses. Definitely recommend it.

The guides were really good with those people who had limited riding experience. The horses were well-behaved for everyone.
