We went horseback riding for our anniversary. It was a great experience overall and the guides were awesome and friendly. Only bit of constructive feedback I have is that for a place that's been offering horseback riding for so long, they might have a more streamlined intake approach when guests arrive for the ride. They seemed a little disorganized at... More

Our hosts were sweet and accommodating, the stable crew were wonderful, and Charlie (the Belgian) was a wonderful horse, even posing with us for pictures. Can't wait to try this ride in a carriage during foliage season!

Cool house & hosts. We very much enjoyed our stay here. First morning share breakfast with one other couple from New Jersey. Second morning they served breakfast to 9 couples as did a great job. Our room was quite comfortable and we wanted for nothing. Thanks to Rick & Charlene

We are told that it is the most popular pony ride in the area and we have seen many children return until they are old enough to go on a regular trail ride. The pony rides were $18/ each... More

We just walked around a field, down a short path by the river and then back around the field I found myself wanting it to be over. It was also a very hot day and, since you needed jeans or long pants, we were roasting. I went here about 10 years ago and it seemed nicer with more walking by... More

You are not required to wear long pants, but some people prefer to do this. It is whatever you are comfortable with. Due to the heat... More

Our family of 6 (4 children ages 11-19) all loved the leisurely ride! Our guides were wonderful. My youngest said to give a 10 star rating but we will have to settle just giving it a 5. Loved it!
