“winter sleigh ride”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

The ride was amazing, just enough snow, not freezing, we called and they accommodated our time for the ride. The woman and girl were very friendly, spent some time telling us about the farm and the horses. We learned the history of the place. The horses are VERY well cared for, we walked through the stables and met a few while the staff got the sleigh ready. The property is beautiful, evergreens and open fields and mountain views. Breathtaking. So quiet you can hear a pin drop. Very New England picture postcard. Off the path but easy to find once you know where it is in Conway. Land borders Saco river. Bob our horse is big beautiful and well tempered. We plan to go back again as we spend some time in Conway area and had such a great time

“Sleigh Ride”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

Just returned from an amazing sleigh ride given by Farm by the River. It was a picture perfect day in that the day was cold with light flurries. The property is beautiful. The owners were very welcoming as were the other staff we met there today. Sarah was our guide and was very friendly and knowledgable. Our horse was Robert(Bob) and he gave a great ride. We will definitely come back in the summer to horseback ride.

“Perfect ending to a perfect weekend”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

My husband and I booked a private sleigh ride. We weren't sure if the ride was going to take place as the wether was quite windy, however, the owners went out to check the trails to make sure they were safe for the ride! We were excited to find out that everything was A-OK. Our horse, Bob, was a big boy, but very gentle and well behaved! We were given blankets to keep extra warm! Such beautiful scenery from the mountains, Sacco River and even a view of our hotel while on the ride! Everyone that we came in contact with was super friendly and accommodating. This was a perfect ending to the first perfect Valentine's Day Weekend getaway as a married couple! Thank you for making our weekend a memorable one!

“Dreamy carriage tour”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

My husband and I booked a "Private Carriage Ride" . Our horse was bob and driver was Sarah and the were both fantastic. The ride is full of breath taking scenery as if from a Thomas Kincaid painting. We sipped on hot chocolate and sat back under the down blanket warm and dreamy. They also offer a very affordable group sleigh ride which I think is more budget friendly for families. Can't go wrong here.... This Is a memory you will take home with you.....~MaryAnn
