5-star because it is first time and great fun. The old couple who received our fee seemed to have no expression on their face and talked slow. That is ok. Pros: - $90 for two for 1 hour horse riding - same price for early...More

We went on a Monday, and got a private trail ride because there were no crowds. Weekends are busy! My son has no riding experience at all, and I am an intermediate rider. They did a great job of pairing us with the proper horses,...More
