I don't normally do trail rides - this wasn't my choice - my horse just came back from a ride and wanted water (they were working on it as it was broke and they wouldn't let my horse get water) - then we were to go on an hour ride in the 93F heat. also they had a lot of... More

The trails could of been better but I can't complain. I had a good time. It was my first time riding a horse and I had no problems at all. the horse followed my lead very well. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. It's right off the interstate and decently priced. I'd recommend this place.

These riding stables are actually located in the Kentucky Action Park, which is also top rated for things to do in Cave City. It is not included in the K.A.P. day pass. We paid $14 per rider (for 30 minute ride) and an additional $2 for adult rider since she was so young. Helmets are available The ride got started... More

The stables are part of the Ky Action Park. I've separately rated the park. The zip lining was great, the park was okay. From the time we bought the tickets to the end of the trip it just wasn't the same experience as the zip lining. There was an older lady that assisted us. She wasn't very friendly and spoke... More

Affordable, nice ride through the woods. It is a walking ride, no cantering or trotting. They only have western saddles and they do provide helmets. Horses appear to be well cared for.

The cabin was large and clean. Quite out-dated but adequate. The remote for the TV never worked. We reported it and followed instructions given but it just didn't work. The rides were shut down due to rain so we didn't get to experience them. They looked like fun. The horse back riding was a hit. The price was great and... More

We stopped here on 06/16/15 on our way to Kentucky Kingdom. Three of our party of five took the 1 hour horseback riding tour. The lady behind the counter who sells the tickets did seem a little grouchy (as others have noted here) but I guess thats just her "way". After we bought the tickets we all 5 walked down... More

My parents, husband, and I just took a weekend trip to Cave City, mainly to tour Mammoth Cave. Aside from the cave, though, there isn't a ton to do in the vicinity that isn't specifically kid-oriented and/or super cheesy. So, we decided to play a round of putt-putt on Saturday evening, and Jesse James' course looked good from the road.... More
