Amazing riding experience
Aug 2019 • Family
This was an amazing experience. The horses are lovely, the trail ride was amazing , but the best part was riding a beautiful horse on the beach with the ocean beside you!!!

Do NOT let any reviews dissuade you from this experience. The owner Andrew was amazing despite what has been written here. As long as you respect what you’re doing there will not be an issue. He was friendly and entertaining. He clearly loves these horses and is concerned about your safety and theirs.

The experience was more than worth the very reasonable cost.

Amazing trail rides
Sep 2018 • Couples
My girlfriend and I have the opportunity to visit the Circle T trail rides yesterday and I have to to say they have the most amazing riding experience I have ever been on. The owner/guide Rueben took us through the back fields and pointed out all sorts of interesting things while leading us. We eventually made our way to a gorgeous beach and rode on that for a while until we turned around and headed back. We even took the horses out to a sandbar and rode along that for a bit. It was absolutely beautiful.
Rueben was very knowledgeable about his horses and you could tell he cared for them very much. He was able to give us instructions as to how to handle our horses; my girlfriend's horse need to have the reigns tighter while my horse was a bit more relaxed but I had to make sure to keep an eye on her getting out of the line.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to experience beautiful scenery from the back of a well taken care of horse.
Thank you Rueben, we will be sure to come back again.

Great beach, great horses, great guide!
Sep 2018 • Couples
Just finished an excellent horseback ride along the beach. Well behaved horses. Guided by the 5th generation on the land. Very knowledgeable. Fun ride. A definite plus to our vacation. They were quite amenable to helping me get the excursion planned from Phoenix, AZ. I highly suggest taking a ride through Circle T!

Wonderful beach ride for four

Not sure what some of these other reviews expect. Andrew is a cowboy. He's been doing this his entire life. Was he rugged? Yes. Was he professional? You bet. Was he a firm up front about precisely how to handle each individual horse? Yes. The guy cares for your safety and part of your safety involves handling the horse appropriately!

Tiffany was wonderful from start to finish. I did not reach them on the phone as they were on a ride, but she was responsive on Facebook and we were able to book the trail ride and even add folks at a later date to fill up slots. Please note, before you get upset, we were told they only take 4 out at a time. We rented a car, given that we were coming into Charlottetown on the cruise ship. It was very easy to find and there was even a sign on the main highway at the turn. Once there, we checked in and made payment (cash only). Tiffany got all of us set up with clean and fitting helmets. Then we went over near the horses. Andrew was putting on the final touches but they were ready for us. He paired us individually with each horse based on size and experience. Each horse has a different personality and a different method that they respond to so he made sure we were all comfortable handling the reigns. Two of us were complete rookies, and he didn't do anything to make us feel uncomfortable. He stressed the importance of keeping the horses in a line (as some others have pointed out they didn't like but come on, his points are valid. If you let them wander then you are encouraging bad behavior and the horse will take advantage to eat anything they want.). He helped us up on each horse, then Tiffany untied us and off we went. It was a nice ride down their trail to the beach. Andrew was sharing a bit about the land, history of their generations, etc. It was so peaceful! Then we got to the beach. It is a BEAUTIFUL private stretch of beach. That's right, no roads, no paths. The only access is via their land. The sand was beautiful and they walked us for almost 3/4 of a mile before turning around. Little did we know, Tiffany was taking photos the entire time. Then we started back along the same path. By the time we got back, it was about 1 hour on the dot riding, exactly what was advertised.

All in all, it was a wonderful experience. Tiffany and Andrew were so helpful and informative. The horses were sweet and extremely well trained. This is the trail ride to do. Even without the beach, this would be an incredible experience with great staff.

Amazing ride
Aug 2018 • Family
This place is terrific for horseback riding. My husband, myself, and our 15 year old daughter had a blast and the scenery is beautiful. The horses follow the trail extremely well and the ranch was very good to their horses. I will definitely go back if I ever make it back to PEI

disappointed
Aug 2018 • Solo
despite reading some poor reviews with regards to the owner and his demeanor, I decided to call and make a reservation for a trail ride in the near future. The first time I called the phone was answered by a male who advised he was currently on a horse and could not book a reservation and could I call back later....no big deal and understandable. I called back later and while the male was taking the booking information the call was interrupted by loud screaming- a male party yelling that he would be calling the rcmp- instead of getting an apology for the interruption I was hung up on...I will not be calling back

So Relaxing and Peaceful!
Jun 2018 • Couples
If you love horses then this is the place to go. Last year we vacationed in PEI for the first time and went to Circle T Trail Rides. We had the most wonderful experience, so we went back again this year! The trail ride was so beautiful and relaxing, then we continued to the beach. This was the icing on the cupcake for me, especially if you love the water. The view was spectular!! Andrew and Tiffany were kind and helpful as it was my second time on a horse. We love this place and will be returning next year! Thanks Scooter and Max (the horses) for the great riding experience.
