My daughter wanted to try out a horseback tour. We did not call in advance. We just showed up and were in a saddle within fifteen minutes of our arrival. Our guide Ryan was friendly. Horses were calm and seemed well cared for.

The staff were very helpful and accommodating to our large group of family members ages 9-64. The one-hour trail ride was a great activity that everyone enjoyed.

The hours listed on the website are not correct. We showed up after calling multiple times and leaving numerous messages to find out that no one works there regularly. The farm itself is run down and needs some definite attention. There was a woman there...More
