The stable hands were very nice and accommodating. The corrals can accommodate large parties of 12 on one ride. The length of the ride and scenery were perfect. You could tell the horses were well taken care of. Great place to stop for a trail ride.

We did the 1.5 hr trail ride . It was the perfect amount of time and still proved challenging. I think the 3 hour trip would have been a little much for them. My husband and I have rode before, but not for quite some time. Our 4 children, aged 9-12, had not ridden for any length of time and... More

My husband and I have both ridden many times but the kids-never. So we were a little nervous about a 90 minute ride into the mountains. Cowboy Brady (this is how he's come to be known) was a fantastic leader/guide. He put the three kids behind him in size and age order (ages 11,12,13) and they all had very sweet,... More

Our three boys enjoyed their first horseback riding experience at Galena. I think that Amos, our guide, had a lot to do with it. He talked and joked with the boys as he lead our 1 1/2 hour ride. It was a beautiful ride, the horses were well behaved and the staff was friendly and personable. I highly recommend them.

My husband, son and I took at 90 minute ride. Definitely superior to other similar trail rides we have taken. The terrain is more interesting and even if you are far from an expert rider, you are not treated like a child. The staff was fun and friendly and the horses were well behaved. The price of $58 per person... More

My boyfriend and I were in the Sun Valley area for a wedding this past weekend and I insisted we do some horseback riding since I hadn't been in a while.

The horses were well behaved & our guide friendly. We went out for one hour on roads trails and into the creek a couple of times. The scenery is beautiful and helps remind the rider of the old west. I had one 17, 16, & 12 year old. The rider was a good time for each of us. Nobody was... More

I'm a city slicker and haven't been on a horse in 50 years, but my husband, who used to own several horses many years ago, wanted to go riding while we were vacationing in the Sun Valley area.

As a family of first time riders, we chose the 1-hour ride. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by friendly staff. They helped fit us with authentic cowboy boots, hats, and chinks (knee-length chaps for the summer). They took several family pictures for us before giving us simple instructions and commands for how to control our horses. We then saddled up... More
