“Fun ride in the rain”

D & S Alaskan Trail Rides
Reviewed 15 August 2015 via mobile

We had a variety of ages and abilities in our group and all enjoyed this ride. It was pouring which didn't seem to dampen anyone's spirits. They got us rain gear and helmets and gave lots of information about the area. Easy ride, nice to get out into the woods for a while.

Wonderful ride through some very beautiful trails. We had three guides (front, middle and back) with riders as young as 9 and as old as 65+ with everyone having no issues. The scenery was amazing as well as the entertainment from Cowboy Matt (Matthew for short!). A must do while in Talkeetna....you won't regret it!

Great ride with super friendly people. They had 2 guides, one in front and one in the back, the whole time. They narrated about the vegetation and gave us chances to stop and take pictures. They even took photos with our camera of the whole family. They were chatty and knowledgeable. My young daughter loved it. Its a great way to take in nature.

I echo the positive comments made by Amy and Gabrielle, and found the ride to be easy, beautiful, and peaceful during a rather hectic 2-week vacation to Alaska. The guides gave us a very good introduction to riding and away we went, up a gorgeous hill loaded with springtime flowers, green foliage and tall trees dripping with cool mist. My horse was perfectly calm and well-trained, so I wasn't afraid. I have a bad back but didn't feel pain, which surprised me, and later felt fine. And I didn't feel pressured to buy the photos, which I did anyway. A lovely outing with fabulous scenery and very nice people. I would certainly do it again.

Rode with this family owned outfit into the woods. Great guides, very friendly and knowledgable. They really enjoyed their "jobs". We did not see Mt. McKinley as it was clouded over however we did have a wonderful time atop our trusty steads. They take your photograph near the end and then charge you for it, which was $10 per photo I believe. Should have been included in the excursion price. The quality of the printer isn't very good either. I would rather they took it with my camera!
