Overworked and under tended horses. Please consider bicycles or another activity that doesn't cause suffering to another creature.

We rented saddle horses and a drive your own carriage. The staff was great. All their horses were well cared for. We got great horses to ride (Casper and Dan) and Rocket was a blast to drive. Will definitely be back.

We had such a great time! Our horse Ace was wonderful. Very helpful staff. You could tell each person who worked there truly cared about your experience.

Our dog Daisy relaxed in the back seat with my husband while I drove the buggy. Walking and trotting in peaceful surroundings. Will be back on the next visit !!!!

Imagine getting to drive your own surry with a black Percheron pulling you. Jack's offers this. If you would rather ride, you can also rent a saddle horse by the hour, too. The buggy horses go on a paved road along the lake and then...More
