It could have been more fun. We felt rushed and the ride felt short -45 minutes all together and half of it was walking by the hotel. The horses were sleepy (I guess that means not dangerous for beginners) and the guides were bored. I was bored! Mosquitoes were very bad--wear long pants and bring bug spray. It was expensive for what it was.

Very dangerous place. I was severely injured here. They do not offer any safety equipment. Would never take my family here again.

My 5yr old daughter had a nice (but brief) pony ride for $8...plus a $5 tip. (there's a sign saying tips are welcome) My 8yr old would've loved a pony ride, but he was too old for that....so he only had the option of a trail ride, which he was too nervous to do (having never been on horses). Would be nice if there were some mid-level options. The petting zoo is pathetic. One sheep, one goat, one donkey, and two pigs. Big let-down there.

I think the trail rides are probably fun, although they sounded a bit pricey. I believe it was $32/person for a 45 minute ride. We purchased a pony ride for our 4 yr old. He had fun, but they just lead the ponies around a pretty small circle 4 times. $2 a lap.....well, ok.

We just stopped here for a quick pony ride. Kids thought it was fun, but not that impressive. We've been on much better rides before. This one just went in a small circle 3 times.
