Review of Dutch Creek Trails

Dutch Creek Trails
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Could title this the Travis and Charlie show! They showed us a great time on a trip with spectacular views. VERY friendly, they made for a relaxing ride. Our party consisted of three and they made it very personal for us. The horses were smooth and responsive and looked well taken care of. I've rode other trail horses that go from point "A" to "B" and do not deviate, the Dutch Creek Trail horses do what you ask.

Overall, this was a very positive experience and we'd go back again.

Keith is extremely friendly and makes everyone feel like family. He can demonstrate the proper way to use the rope swing by the office and you're in for a treat! Ryan & Charlie were our trail guides and excellent the whole way. Being inexperienced and nervous, they provided reassurance and made me feel comfortable with the horses. Beautiful ride and best rates in the area!. Definitely take a ride with this family and you'll right at home. - B Barbour

We took our 2 grandkids - both boys 6 & 9 to ride on 10-5-13 along with their parents. The kids had not been horseback riding before - the 6 year old had a small melt down when his horse moved. Travis pulled him aside away from the others and talked to him that there was nothinbg to be afaid of - the 9 year old took to horse back riding like a champ. Travis arranged for the 6 year old horse to be guided by one of the trail hands - at the end both boys loved the ride and were now thinking of taking them to a dude ranch. Great ride into the mountains with great overlooks - without Travis and his staff's help with our 6 year old - one of us would have to have stayed behind. They are true professionals and know how to handle life's little set backs.

The horses are the attraction here. Everyone with a different personality. The people will treat you like family. Over all it was an amazing ride. Can't wait to go back!

Keith and family are super nice folks. The ride was a bit disappointing but probably because I expected to see some views. We went up and down trails which was okay but it was challenging riding and no views.
