We had the most amazing 1 hour ride, led by Emily. Our horses were great, and the view was so amazing I thought I was in a movie. This was the highlight of our vacation because it was even better than hoped.

You don't have to have any experience, she will take you riding around her farm which is big. You'll have to call for the price, but it's not very much.
