This place has stood the test of time. The stables are clean, VERY friendly staff (owners) and nice, calm horses. It's best for an early morning summer ride due to heat or a springtime or autumn visit. Love the smell of the horses!!

The horses are well-cared for and well-trained which makes the experience more enjoyable for those of us who care about animals. The trail is pleasant, wooded and with at least one view of the lake. The grounds are fenced. The operators are very willing to...More
