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.

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

The best value I have seen for horseback riding. We took the 45 minute ride which was just enough. The horses were well trained and looked well cared for. The trail was nice. Crossing streams and going deep into woods. We even saw a bear...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.
