“Great Views on Trail Ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

We went on 30 min horseback ride which was very enjoyable. They allow doubling with children 4 and under which is great and they are one of the cheapest places around.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Great experience! Our visit here started with the 45 minute trail ride at the stable. It was beautiful. Be prepared to hold on the trails are steep and windy but gorgeous. Our young son who was 4 at the time was with us and he was safely tied to our guide on his own horse. After the ride we headed over to the petting zoo. Don't expect some glorious beautifully maintained petting zoo. It was rural but the perfect size for our son. We were able to go into the goat pen and to my sons amazement were allowed to pick up the baby goats. We were able to feed all of the animals. They had a zebra, a giant horse, camels, bulls, italian donkeys, reindeer, miniature horses and more. The horses would bang on the doors with their hooves for food. It was a great time. We stayed there for about and hour and a half. We are definitely going again in 2012.

“Fun!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

We have been here several times and always love it! It is small, but we are animal lovers so it always makes us smile. The camels are my most fave as they are so very gentle and sweet. The baby goats are simply adorable! You might want to bring some hand wipes as you will get slimey - but it is so worth it!

“More a feeding farm than petting farm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

My kids love animals and they were wild about feeding the animals here! Lots of interaction for the kids. Lots of variety of animals to pet and feed. Not very expensive either :-)
