This was a fabulous horseback ride through the vineyards. What a nice way to celebrate our anniversary. This tour is appropriate for first time riders as well as those with more experience. Ashton was a great guide as well as riding instructor.

My husband planned this trip for my bday and it was so much fun! The guide was so relaxed and made it so easy to book and even reschedule when the weather was not so good. We will definitely go back!

We went riding with Ashton and Craig in late July 2016. They were exceptionally professional, and clearly competent cowboys. Their horses were well loved, and obviously cared for. We met the guys at King Family Vineyards, and rode horseback through the vineyards and surrounding countryside...More
