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.

We stayed nearby and decided to go for a trail ride while in WI. This was a nice option - it gave the kids a chance to get on a horse for a while and spend some time in the woods. It was a nice slow walk on a path behind the Timber Ridge resort. Great way to get some... More
