The ladies who handled the horses and led the trail ride were excellent. the owner was nasty and disrespectful for no reason. Beautiful horses and nice trail ride, but no reason to be nasty to experienced horse people.

I called and asked for a private lesson. When I arrived I was told that they don't differ lessons on weekends and that there were not enough guides for a private ride. I had driven 30 minutes so I stayed. The guide was nice, the trials were pleasant and the horse was gentle. But I wish I had known upfront... More

Did one hour private ride. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Beautiful trails in shade and options to trot. Horses well trained and calm. No reservation and no wait. Although my previous call did not get returned we showed up and had a great riding experience!

My daughter spoke a number of times with John and it was very clear from their conversations that I wanted to do the group ride at 10:30. When they spoke on Saturday (the day before) he told her to have me show up at 10:15... More

I chose to ride at Mt. View Ranch because we were visiting in Manchester, VT, and it's a short distance away. I spoke with John several times, and even emailed him that I was an experienced rider and wanted a private, longer trail ride with places to canter. I arrived to find one other lady waiting, and John nowhere around.... More

We looked at the website and found a few horses for sale that we thought we might be interested in. My daughter and I made the long trip to the farm after a phone call with John the owner that assured me the horse he had there would be just perfect for my daughter who barrel races. We arrived at...

I went to this place the day after I got engaged for a horseback ride. We were visiting Manchester and this is only a short drive away. The people there were very friendly, and the horse ride was great. To to it off, the scenery was spectacular and really unbeatable. We had a great time and would definitely go back... More
