On the day we visited, there was a major downpour (in their local area not ours), the courteous and thoughtful staff texted us with the news and offered to reschedule. We decided to come anyway and we were happy we did. The youngest (7 yr old) enjoyed watching the pigs, and chickens as well as the horse ride. Our group... More

My 12 y.o. daughter and I rode there twice last week, with different guides. Both times were great - we both ride (a little) and are comfortable around horse. The taught us about caring for the horses and taught technique for more effective riding. We brushed and groomed the horses, cleaned their feet, saddled, and bridled as well. Safety was... More

Angie is a wonderful woman whom I have met personally. She is very considerate and she knows how to run a horse and animal farm. My younger sister works and rides there, and whenever I am in VA, that is one of the places I go often. Angie never minds and she is very accommodating to riders skills. The trails... More

As expected this ride was the usual trail ride basically thru a circular trail. The tour guide and hands were very nice and very real. The views were nice and there were no issues. As a side adventure from camp, my 16, 12 n 11 year Olds enjoyed the ride. Would love to see some distractions while riding, maybe fauna... More

Our family took the trail ride today (July 14 2015). Our guide was great and we all had a fantastic time. The horses were great and they are well taken care of. If you are somewhat of an experience rider you get to have your horse trot at somewhat of a fast pace. Had a blast!

On May 30, 2015 I celebrated my birthday by starting the day with a 9am trail ride with my husband, 5 year old daughter and 10 year old niece.

My daughter and I went for a spur of the moment trail ride with Pfeiffer Riding Stables while in Cape Charles. The hour long trail ride winds through fields and wooded areas and is a "must do" when visiting or passing through the Cape Charles area. Our guides were two friendly young ladies who where eager to offer riding suggestions... More
