The people and the horses here are the best. Its a great location also. Lots of trails to ride on by Beaver Pond or up in the higher hills. This ride is great for beginners and advanced riders. Its a beautiful area.

We went on the trail ride to the Cowboy Dinner. I rate this event as a MUST DO if you are there during that time of year, hey, if there is snow, do the sleigh ride. You can't beat it!

We loved our chuck wagon supper. Our 4 year old daughter got to "drive" the wagon under Cowboy Bob's encouraging and patient tutelage. Her 8 year old brother rode his own horse with guidance from Red and her very kind team of wranglers. Dinner was...More
