Photos are 100% deceiving. This place is a dump. Rides are barely ok. Staff is not friendly. The only thing that is correct, is they do not give a refund, even if one is not physically able to ride. Fine a different facility.

Tiny cabin away from the main house, meals made over a fire at the chuckwagon, guided horse rides both morning and afternoon, drinking fresh spring water from the stream, stories around a campfire by real cowboys, peace, tranquility, and fireflies. All without leaving Western NY....More

We stayed for a weekend for our honeymoon summer of 2012. We had a cabin with complimentary bottle of champagne and made memories to last an life time. Our meals were all around a fire at the Chuck wagon, wrassled up by cowboy Jim while...More
