At $75 a person it is one of the best values in the area. The leads give you a horse based on your riding experience and lead you to the fall with a breakfast stop on the way there. At the stop there are peacocks...More

506-2787-0541 is their number - there’s only one company - they own the land it is on. The rider doesn’t need to have any experience - the horses are really mellow and they know the way!
