I did the one hour trek with my family recently and it was fantastic. I was nervous at the start but the awesome guides darren and Lorraine put me at ease and the horses were so calm and well trained. Definitely something I'll do again.

Communing with nature and all the deer and beautiful countryside, that was the hallmarks of the ride. Staff very nice and horses know your personality right away! A great experience!
