It's in Hocking Hills! Is there any place not beautiful there?? The most adventurous trail we've ever tried and we loved it!

The trail we went on was challenging, but awesome. They had the best and friendliest dogs and other farm animals. The horses were friendly and well cared for. The guide did an excellent job. We’ll be back.

Shelly and Scott were great hosts and guides. Horses were very easy rides and well trained. Quite a variety of animals at the farm, some very uncommon ones for Ohio. Fallow Deer and Water Buffalo to mention a couple! A nice early season ride!
