Having ridden in four continents this ranks amongst some of the best. The staff are friendly and helpful, allowing you to get to know all the horses and their stories beforehand. We arrived early and were able to feed and help at the stables. All the horses are in great condition and obviously well cared for. There were a great selection of safety helmets and regard for safety.
The ride was 1.5 hours plenty enough time for some superb scenery and the highlight, a dip in Back Bay on horseback amongst the waves and return to the shore.
Times were convenient and there was only two of us on the ride with our guide.
I would recommend.

“Awesome experience”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

My family took a trail ride at the last minute with this group and I couldn't have had a better experience! The horses are so full of personality and the staff is amazing. My family now volunteers at the ranch and are lucky to grow close to the horses and staff.

“Incredible Experience an Wonderful Staff!”
Reviewed 11 July 2013 via mobile

I recently heard about the ranch and their work with rescue horses and decided to go on their water ride down to Back Bay. The trail was private and very welcoming! The horses were great too! All of the horses on the ranch are rescue horses that are used to do trails and they have some of the best personalities with so much life in their eyes. I've been to several other places to go horseback riding and have never been so thrilled with the experience. If you want to support a great cause come experience and incredible trail with horses that were given a second chance at life!
