Overview

With the combination of our fantastic horses, fun, knowledgeable, personable guides/wranglers, small or big groups, and the stunning beauty of the scenery, what more can one ask for? Our guests have a passion for horses, want to be out with nature, and have an adventurous side. It is the excitement of crossing a river, riding "the man from snowy river," going thru old growth, river bottoms, crossing slides and alpine meadows, just riding in the mountains and doing it with a strong animal beneath you. The views are spectacular! We also offer pack trips, cabin rentals, and fishing trips. Must call or email for directions. Do NOT drive to our house please. The map is not able to match where the rides are which are in the mountains of the St. Marys.

We booked our adventure with Val and Brad for August 6, 2016. Val was excellent with her prompt email responses and on it with answering our questions. Details were excellent, but we did find ourselves questioning on directions on a particular split in the road....More

Great place. Scenic horseback riding in the back county near Kimberly. Highly recommended for couples or families. No riding experience needed as they are they to guide you through forest and river scenery.

I was unsure about horseback riding at first having never done it before, but could not have had a more positive experience. From the moment I mounted the horse, GOT's guides made me feel extremely comfortable, and the ride was absolutely stunning in its beauty....More
