Great time! It is definitely a stress reliever. I really like the fact they are also a horse sanctuary. My sons loved it as did I. I plan to return to ride again as well as volunteer.

We're so glad you enjoyed riding at our farm. And with so many horses, we can always use an extra hand, so we'd love for you to join our Volunteer Program.

Your choices will be determined by your granddaughter's age. How old is she?

So your daughter took a 30 min pony ride not a 2 hour trail ride correct?

Response from mdarch | Reviewed this property |
Yes, that's correct. They do offer 1 hour and 2 hour trail rides, but the child must be 6 years old to ride alone for the trail rides, so that's how my 4 year old ended up on the pony ride since she wanted her own horse.
