The staff was polite and informative about how to ride. Actually, they gave our group of four a very cool response when we arrived but they warmed up. Our trail guide was helpful along the ride. The facility and pasture where the horses appear to spend their time wasn't impressive - the horses looked okay but I didn't feel great... More

I think the staff is tired of what they do...not the friendliest. The trails are ok, some steep. The equipment is very well worn. The biggest disappointment is the condition of the horses. They are obviously over used, and in my opinion they are underweight! This coming from someone whose father has a 100 acre farm and raises horses. I'm... More

The trail ride was amazing. Only two of us knew how to ride and the other two of us did not know. There was a man who had helped us get on the horse and gave us instructions on how to ride. The guide, or the leader, lead us up and down the trails with two places to take pictures... More

I have ridden all over the country at various stables. It is something I do when on vacation. We had a group of four adults, two who have never ridden before. The facilities were very dilapitated, the horses appeared underweight, and the riding equipment was well used. That being said, the guide was very good at his job, and made... More

As my youngest niece described it, it was not just a pony ride like at a fair...its a real horse ride. The folks at Queens stable are local folks, easy to communicate with and very helpful.

We were a large group with children ranging from 3 to 11. The 3 year old rode with me and the rest of the kids rode on their own. This was their first time riding and had an incredible time. The horses were sweet and gentle and the guide and everyone was helpful and knowledgeable. We had a great experience!

Hmm, I read the other reviews after our horseback adventure here. We were fortunate and had an excellent experience. While the grounds and the barn are dilapidated, the people were very friendly and extremely helpful. In fact our guide talked to us through much of the tour and gave my son, a first-time rider, lots of instruction. I was very... More

Not much help when starting. Took my wife and the two kids (8 and 10) they did not have helmets (we used bicycle ones) Saddle did not fit my son well. Once half way up mountain, one of the riders fell off his horse with a medical condition. No first aid kit or way to communicate with office (there was... More
