Arrived at the ranch. Filled out a disclaimer quickly. Chose not to have helmets.
Quickly we were organised and assigned to our horses.
My husband is a novice where I’m experienced rider. I’m unsure why we have to declare our ability though if we are only steadily walking? Maybe someone could explain that.
Anyway set off with our wrangler who was funny, full of information and a very competent horse man. Felt safe on my horse. He was responsive and stopped when I asked him to. My husbands horse (Moonlight)? Did look a few times like he was going to go down.. I shouted at my husband to kick him on as he looked like he wanted to roll. On saying that my husband said he felt safe and was happy with him and gave him lots of pats. It might of just been the type of horse he was.
Some good views from the top of the trail.
It’s a shame we couldn’t of been split into those who could ride and those who couldn’t so we could of gone a little faster but I suppose the terrain makes it difficult to work the horses at speed.
Had a great time thanks and it was nice to ride USA style compared to English. I do prefer my saddle though
I’ve read the poor reviews on this site and I think they’re a little unfair. Horses are animals and are unpredictable. Sometimes the shoot off unexpectedly and occasionally people fall off. It is to be expected. Don’t let those reviews put you off. These people do a good job with these horses and work hard to ensure that novices have an enjoyable experience along with the more competent riders.
