Loved riding with Jacques Robidas. I have only done western style riding prior to this experience and found I really liked the "one with the horse" technique (very zen) that Jacques teaches here. Much more comfortable and intuitive than western. I see a few reviews...More

Please do not visit this place to ride. Sleight rides are good, but not horseback riding. Owner is very brisk, impatient and its his way or no way when it comes to riding the horses. My friend and I payed 80$ each for a "riding...More

There is nothing more magical than a sleigh ride in the woods after a fresh snowfall. Even the horses seem to love it. Mr. Robidas is a wonderful, bilingual, kind and informative man and he obviously cares a great deal about his horses. The horses...More
