The owner and ride master, Eileen, was excellent. We had a group of five with various experience from novice to having riding lessons. Each of us was matched with a suitable horse. I got one with a touch of spirit and was quite satisfied. The novice got a very placid horse and was very comfortable. The 45 minute trail ride was very good, up and down some grades with a chance for a bit of jogging if desired. The trail was stony and the scenery was nil - the only negatives.
