This place is amazing... seriously. The drive there is a little tough, but the destination is worth it. Because it's relatively remote, you really do feel like you're in an old mining town in another time. The staff and guides were excellent and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area, and the horses were in great shape. The ride was scenic... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time on the two hour horse back ride! Our guide was phenomenal..very kind, helpful, and knowledgable. We were able to see some really cool things, including a waterfall, old gold mine, and some wildlife! Getting to the stables is an adventure in itself, but the trip is worth it! We highly recommend Old... More

We had four in our group and took the 2 hour ride. I can't describe how beautiful the scenery was. Dennis our guide was very friendly and full of knowledge! The horses were well behaved. We definitely would go back. The drive up the mountain took longer then the drive down, lol.

Would definitely go back but would ride longer. The staff was very knowledgeable of the area too. The drive up the mountain was an adventure in itself and the views were... More

This is a fantastic place to ride, especially for kids and beginners! Sue was our guide and absolutely amazing with my kids, especially my daughter who was not completely sure about the ride! Casey was also amazing and helped us get on our way. Great ride, beautiful scenery, I would highly recommend this!

This was only the 2nd time my son had ridden. We ended up having a private ride with Sara as our guide. She was very knowledgeable and filled us... More
