We took our girls (6+8) on a two hour trail one morning. Richard the owner was delightful and put our girls straight to work brushing down the horses and saddling them. Our guides were two young girls - both riding bareback - who were extremely confident and made everyone, especially our nervous 8 year old, feel very safe. The trail... More

Some of our family had been trail riding and some had never been on a horse before. The owner of this establishment was so kind and helpful it was such a treat! Our rafting excursion right before horseback riding caused us to be late. Even though he had already unsaddled and put away the 7 horses for our trip, he... More

I took my 11 year old daughter and her friend to Lonesome Dove while vacationing in a cabin nearby. The older kids all went ziplining, but the little girls were too little to go. Horseback riding was supposed to be the consolation prize, but it ended up being THE BEST! The staff was friendly the moment we arrived. They talked... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of taking a trail ride with Lonesome Dove stables. We absolutely loved our two guides - and we liked that it was only them and us. One thing that we enjoyed was that this was not a place that said "You can only walk your horse here - nothing else." They asked us... More

This was a good experience. Richard was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our guide hopped off the school bus and started the business of guiding us. My horse, River, even decided to take a mud bath while on the trail. He could have gave me some sort of warning. Lol!! Still, he was a great horse. I would definitely return. I... More

We did the four hour ride booked through Carolina outfitters. I think the 4 hour ride is definitely unusual for them. Our guide Kathy was unsure of the route. She called Richard a couple of times because she was unsure where we were going. After about hour 2 the horses were done, two of them started getting very antsy and... More

We had so much fun horseback riding here. The guides, though in their teens, have so much experience with horses, and the horses themselves were gentle and obedient. Even our five-year-old rode!. The scenery was beautiful as we wound our way up the mountains. Best of all, all their horses are rescued from bad situations and rehabilitated by the owner.... More

The other reviewers are spot-on; I'll reinforce that these horses seem very well-kept. We did a two-hour ride. Our guide was a 13-year-old girl who rode bareback and looked like she was raised on a horse. She was inspiring! She got other riders talking as we went along and told us some stories about the areas we rode through. We... More
