Our family really enjoyed this place. A friendly staff, mild mannered horses, and well maintained stables and trails made for an memorable experience. We were able to see three bears during the trail ride. Well worth the visit.

Had a nice time taking the 45-minute ride. Prices were definitely reasonable (I think I recall $25 + tax/pp in October 2017). Fun tour guide, and the horses always got a good drink of water before taking people out on the trail. The personalities of...More

The trail ride itself was relaxing. However, we were in the back and could not hear a single word the "guide" at the front was saying. The interactions I had with the old man helping to mount and dismount riders was awful. At the beginning...More

Wasn't crowded when we were there, so we walked right up, paid and were sitting on horses five minutes later. Staff helped us mount and gave us instructions. My kids are young, so staff suggested the 45 minute tour. They said the longer ones are...More

Did two beautiful 45 minute rides while at a family reunion. Guides were friendly and were looking out for wildlife to show us, gentle horses, beautiful scenery. I would have liked to do a 2-hour ride but you need at least two customers and no...More

I saw small children riding alone, I'm not certain if I saw little ones on the same horse as a parent. I would advise to call the stable direct. It is a great, beautiful country, streams, forest, etc, very safe and easy.
