Very good experience. very difficult to find though, office staff was not helpful in helping to find the location. The location you meet does not work on GPS. Make sure you leave lots of time to find the place in case you get lost

The trails of the confederate war are really pictorial and describe the trails where the men rode through their battles of the civil war. Very good and educational and really a better understanding of the war.

We had a great ride! They provide headphones so you are able to hear what the tour guide is saying. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and didn't have any trouble with the horses besides them wanting to stop and eat grass.
