The scenery is amazing and for the views during the ride I would definitely recommend it! Staff is friendly and the horses are well trained. However, I’ve been on a number of trail rides this year and this was the first time that I felt more like a customer than like a guest. They send out groups of 8 with one wrangler and when you’re the last rider in line you can barely hear what he is saying. As far as I can tell, the main talking points were the safety rules, not too much information about the ranch or the area in general. Then they have a professional photographer who is selling your picture for $10 like on an amusement park ride and they strongly recommend a tip. Other places charge you the same for a 2 h ride, send 2 wranglers with a group of 6 and do not expect a tip beyond what you already paid. As for the riding itself, it is all nose to tail (the trails don’t allow anything else) and the horses find their way on their own, you don’t get to do anything, you’re just a passenger. What makes it at least a little exciting is that you’re going up and down the hills all the time.
