We booked an hour trail ride with these beautiful and interesting horses. The Icelandic horses are smaller than a typical horse and to my uneducated eye, just a little bit furrier. Icelandic horses are known for a specific gait called "tolting" which is sort of...More

We came upon this horse farm by chance. The owners were very welcoming since we were there not to ride but to photograph the horses. They let us walk around to take pictures and answered all our questions about the horses. While none of us...More

We reserved a 2 hour ride a day ahead. I appreciated the flexibility of timing, but then we were told we could have a 1.5 hour ride when we got there. There were family events happening at the farm, so I shrugged it off. But...More

Ok - for me, the two hour ride was a bit pricey (about $95) and my boyfriend wouldn't spend that much so I went alone. I have been thinking about going there for a week of vacation sometime so wanted to check it out and...More

I spent a week riding with Karen. I can't say enough about the way she cares for her horses and for riders. She gives each rider individual attention and takes great care matching horse and rider. The trails were beautiful!
