“Family Sleigh Ride”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

Our family just spent weekend in Leavenworth, Wa. We had the most wonderful family sleigh ride. The trees were covered with snow and there was even a light snow fall. The driver was great, he explained the ranch activities, the horses and was interested in what the kids knew about Belgium horses. The ride was a good 35 minutes or more and the kids loved the cider after the ride.

“SLEIGH RIDE that movies show”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

We went as a couple. We enjoyed it immensely. Sweet staff. Wish it was longer ride and that we could have gone minus the other groups. Overall though I highly recommend this group for your sleigh ride experience. I agree with another customer that it wasn't as scenic as I would have hoped and as a child from another group quipped, "not fast enough". The horses take a leisurely pace.

“Great winter sleigh ride”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

We loved every bit of our winter sleigh ride. The big horses were gentle and the little grand children got to pet them afterwards. There was a nice warm tent where we went for hot chocolate and coffee afterwards to get nice and warm. Lots of blankets were provided for our comfort. The ride was about 40 minutes long, along the river and through the woods. It was beautiful, and we will do it again.

“Great Great trail riding”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

My family - 2 adults, 11 and 13 yr olds went for a 1.5 hr trail ride the first week of August. The owner (Mike) and his staff were amazing and the horses were wonderful. They weren't the typical trail ride horses. They could be directed with commands and each had their own personality. The ride is so nice on a hot day as you wind through the trees up the mountain and back again. The view from the top is great and the guide is well versed on the area. The staff took pictures of our family on the horses at the end and were very comfortable letting the kids pet the horses.
The farm dogs and chickens were also a highlight for the kids.
Thanks to the staff and the horses, this was a highlight of our holiday!

“Excellent horse rides”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

The horse rides are really cheap (less than $30 for more than an hour) and very well conducted. You ride up a mountain trail and then back to the ranch; this is a nice route even if not very scenic. The horses are well behaved and the guide is a funny guy (don't believe him when he tells you that your horse's name is Psycho or Terminator...) 8)
