We had a great day riding along the Kachemak Bay. Mark was a very knowledgeable and a competent guide. We had the opportunity to "wrangle" some stray cows which was a hoot. 2 deep stream crossings were something we have never done before. Highly recommended.

This was absouletly the best trail ride I have been on. I have been on several including 3 in Hawaii, but Mark makes it so special. His knowledge and skill as a story teller make it very special. Make sure you ask him how a city boy from Minnesota got to be a cowboy in Alaska and be prepared for... More

First thing...this is not a short ride for those who have leg, back or knee problems. You don't need to be an experienced rider but you will very likely be sore. But this was so much fun! Mark is very entertaining, with lots of great Alaskan cowboy stories. Be prepared for rain and cold though, when we were there in... More

Mark's place was easy to find and he had everything set up when we got to there. We drove about 10 miles away and he got the horses out and we headed down a 700 foot cliff road path, which was intense on such big horses. I was impressed with his level of knowledge of the area, his calm demeanor,... More

Ok this trail ride is great because it's truly a trail ride and not some pumped petting zoo walk around the park. And it's not some dude ranch out in Arizona. Mark was our guide and he took us down a cliff and into the Fox River area. If you enjoy horses and truly enjoy riding them then this is... More

So here's the thing. For a novice rider, or one that hasn't ridden in a long time, four hours will leave you sore for days afterward. For an experienced rider like me, the duration didn't bother me, but the lack of variety did. From a description I read somewhere, I thought it would be mostly mountain trails, trailering to a...

When I say "experience", I mean this is something that affects you in the most positive and beautiful way!! My family of 8 (ages 5 thru 50+, and some of which were visiting from Hawaii) went on a beautiful ride down a switchback and through the tidal flats at the mouth of katchemak bay! It was breathtaking! Mark is very... More

I have been on a few different trail rides from Hawaii to Arizona and this was by far my favorite. As other reviews have mentioned Mark is very knowledgeable and shares stories about the history of Homer on the ride. The trail ride starts at the top of a hill and drops down to the beach and it takes you... More
