Visiting the Stables was an awesome experience. The people were very friendly and courteous and showed us the place. The staff shared some their experience and the place itself is very well maintained.

Took my 8yo son for a 1 hour trail ride. Good guides, great scenery and fair price. Only downside was it was hard to hear the leader talk about the history of the region as I was 4 horses back Strongly recommend for novice riders/families.
