Three adults went out with our guide. He pointed out things and gave us tips that helped us enjoy our ride. The horses and equipment were in good shape. Well worth the cost. Guide earned a nice tip! If only we thought to NOT take pictures into the sun..... we were blacked out by shadows.

Six of us, from expert to 1st timer had an AMAZING trail ride with Landon and Jace. The horses are well taken care of!! I loved that you could pick out cowboy boots, chaps, and a western hat right on the premises. Thank you both for making my birthday weekend memorable! Highly recommend this place.
