Absolutely the best horse trail guide I have ever taken. The cowboys are incredible and they assign you to a horse. They actually let you Gallup the horses which is extremely special!!! Will go back!!

The last response is correct. Lunch after the morning and before the afternoon ride. Actually, lunch is served at the same time, so morning and afternoon riders can mingle. If you are afternoon rider, you need to think about... More
