Took my son here as part of his class field trip for the pumpkin patch. The hayride was decent enough for the 4-5 year olds, but it was obviously a short circuit compared to what they sell as the adult rides. While we waited for the hay ride, the kids petted the animals. It is accurate to say it is... More

This event was a joke, and the $12 fee was outrageous. There was no one around to explain where things were or what to expect. The "petting zoo" consisted of three old chain link fenced pens with a pig, a pony that bites, and some chickens and turkeys. The "pumpkin patch" was pumpkins spaced around in a dilapidated field of... More

We had an excellent 2 hours guided trail ride. I had my hip replaced and was worried but the place me on a great horse and the ride was beautiful. Mike, Dillon, Noah and the rest of the folks were very friendly and listened to my concerns. Check them out, you won't regret it!

We came during shoulder-season on a cool, rainy morning, so it was just us and our guide. Horses were well-trained, strong, and were comfortable with occasional equestrians like us and our guide was patient, instructive and not overly talkative.
