A friend and I went on a ride today. I have never ridden before and my friend is an experienced rider. The staff were very friendly,helpful and reassurring to me. The horses were gentle and knew exactly where to walk on the trail through the national park. I started ride with trepidation and by the end wanted to stay on the horse for the rest of the day. A breathtaking view inside the park in places inaccessable by car or by foot.

We would highly recommend this stables as a must do thing to do.

Overall, this was a nice relaxing ride. We had to wait about 1 hour after we checked in, for our ride, so we went to lunch and came back. It was in the woods the entire time, so you don't see any scenery on this ride. It was relaxing, but not exciting.

We had a great experience with our (3) kids (14,11,7). The one hour ride was plenty and a really neat ride up/down hills, across streams, etc. highly recommend.
