First the good part. My Grandgirls enjoyed their 30 minute ride on the trails and the horses looked as though they were well fed, that's about it for the positive. The place is aptly named. There's no sign that they could or would afford a...More

Yes, that's correct. They do offer 1 hour and 2 hour trail rides, but the child must be 6 years old to ride alone for the trail rides, so that's how my 4 year old ended up on the pony ride since she wanted her own horse.
