My friend Linda and I recently completed our one-hour horseback ride at Park Place Stable. Everything about our experience there was perfect. Park Place Stable was super clean. The horses were beautiful, well cared for, well mannered, and friendly. We rode Norwegian Fjord horses, a breed that I was not familiar with before the ride.
Our guide, Chantal, was great--a good teacher, patient, kind, and informative. She gave us some training before we headed out on our ride; we weren't just put on horses and told to follow her. That made us feel that Park Place Stable cares about its customers' safety. My friend Linda had ridden a horse within the last five years and had owned a horse as a young girl, but I had not been on a horse in more than 30 years. Therefore, Chantal selected horses for us according to our riding experience. She also put me at ease with her exercise routines that we executed in the training arena. We practiced making the horses stop, turn left, turn right, and turn in a circle--using English reins, which are different than Western reins. We were also given other safety instructions.
Chantal took us on trails up and down hills and through meadows of colorful wildflowers (at this time of year). She was always aware of where we were behind her, waited for us if necessary, informed us about the sights, and told us where we were going next. The horses responded well to our reining commands, were sure-footed, and fun. The scenery was breathtaking--a lovely place to go horseback riding. We highly recommend Chantal, a special person; the wonderful horses; and Park Place Stable for a terrific horseback-riding experience!
Thanks, Chantal, sweet horses, and Park Place Stable!
Trudy and Linda
