My family had such fun learning about the war while riding those beautiful, gentle horses. Staff was attentive and friendly...any initial anxiety drifted away. The guide was well informed and spoke the entire 2 hours....no problem hearing, because you have an earpiece on. Loved it!

This is the second year in a row we took our grandkids horseback riding here and they enjoyed it so much. Hickory Hollow Horse Farm is a great experience. They are friendly, fun, knowledgeable and make it a great experience. We would highly recommend them.

I cannot say enough about this tour! We have done other battlefield horse back tours at Gettysburg. This was simply the best. It begins from the Confederate lines, which, historically makes sense since they were on the move in the weeks leading up to July....More

The ride to the battlefield was very scenic. Our two kids, 10 and 12, had never ridden a horse before. Our hosts were extra careful to help them with the horses and used great caution so that we could all have a great time without...More
