I decided to do a trail ride and found Widowmaker Trail Rides online. I called Jeff up to set up a date and he was very kind and made it very easy to get the processgoing. We started on time. Jeff is very good at instructing for all experience levels so dont be afraid if you arent that experienced. It was very relaxing and beautiful. 2 hours was the length and thats about right with horse riding. Its an awesome experience and would recommend Jeff to anyone who wants an enjoyable horse ride. A++++++

Dave was a generous host and an entertaining guide. My horse, Chip, was safe and steady, yet responsive to a light touch. The countryside was lovely and there were a few opportunities to trot or go slightly faster if you wanted. All round a good introduction to Texas and Western riding, especially for novice riders. Good value at USD 80 for two hours, especially when compared to what you can pay in the UK for riding

This was such an enjoyable ride for some novice horse back riders. Dave took his time training us on everything we needed to know. He fit us each with a beautiful horse. We forgot our water and Dave was quick to point us to his fridge to each grab one. He knows the trails very well (as do the horses), was very sociable and knowledgeable about the area. He was even our photographer for part of the ride! Highly recommended.

For a couple of relaxing hours, even for those who have never been on a horse, try a trail ride around Lake Grapevine with David and Jeff. They know how to make all the riders comfortable in the saddle while providing riding hints and dialogues about the area. My hotel [Richardson Hilton Garden Inn] "found" Widowmaker Trail Rides for me ~ only a 40 minute drive ~ and it couldn't have been a better experience! Widowmaker Trail Rides have MY stamp of approval for a fun time.

My entire experience was perfect. From making reservations to brushing down the horses. David made sure that everything went smoothly and it did. His horses are very well trained and obedient. The location of the stable is very convenient. It was only a 10 minute drive from the hotel at Southlake. I could not ask for a better horseback riding experience. David is very courteous and accommodating. It was a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend Widowmaker to anyone.
