Literally a private horse back riding experience. Our guide took us out for an 1.5 hour sunset ride. The ride was easy for someone new to horseback riding like myself but still exciting for my more experienced boyfriend. All sorts of scenery from mountains to forest and you even cross a river. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Well, let me say first that I didn't realize private meant just me and my husband. It was awesome!!! Ben was super friendly, and had all sorts of facts and stories to tell on the trail. He was well versed in the history of the area and threw out a few celebrity stories while he was at it. He was... More

My daughter had an absolute ball as a junior counselor at Piping Rock's summer camp this year. She got to spend so much time learning about the horses, helping with ponies and younger campers, and enjoying great riding lessons. We also enjoyed a couple of beautiful trail rides through the center as well. Highly recommend for beginners and horse lovers!

Awesome ride. My guide was Samantha who took great care to choose a fun and interesting 2 hour ride with a horse that suits my inexperience. We saw wildlife, went up & down hillsides and even crossed a creek. It was so much fun!!!! Thanks

We had a delightful two-hour trail ride with guide Casey. This was our first time at Piping Rock. It was easy to find, so we arrived a bit early for our 10 AM ride. We received a warm welcome from barn staff, and a quick safety checkout. Around a dozen horses were already saddled and ready. They were obviously well... More

Another amazing ride at Piping Rock! The trail was gorgeous, the horses were sweet and obviously well cared for, and our guide Anya did a great job. Our favorite part was going through Prosser Creek. We live this stable...and we will definitely be back!

This summer was our second time attending Piping Rock summer camp and it just keeps getting better. My children (boy age 9 and girl age 6) both attended two years ago and really enjoyed it. They asked to come back several times. Finally this summer I was able to enroll them and make it happen. They loved it. They both... More
