“Great way to spend a morning in the Battlefields!”

Hickory Hollow Horse Farm

Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Pam was very professional, personable and courteous - the horses were obviously well cared for and tack was clean and well fitting. The majority of the horses were draft crosses - and their demeanor of "gentle giants" prevailed. Our group was large - about 18 or so and went quite smooth - the horses were obedient and willing. Although a nose to tail trail ride - it was absolutely wonderful because our goal was to see the area as soldiers of the time did -- our guide, who was a licensed battlefield guide, provided awesome historical information. The wranglers stayed at the head and heels of our group and were always looking out for the riders and the horses. We have our own horse farm and are all riders (my husband, and two teenage sons) --- and this was exactly what we were wanting - a relaxing, enjoyable way to learn and witness some of the Gettysburg battlefield areas . Whether you are a rider or not - Pam and her horses will provide a safe, informative and memorable time. (We went on a Monday morning in June - it was unusually hot and the horse flies were a buzz due to the humidity ---- Pam made certain we all had water, the horses had fresh fly repellent, and she had informed us that the afternoon rides were cancelled due to intense heat ---- I translate that as - she CARES for her horses - they are not just vehicles to cart others around!) Excellent choice for a "to do" ------- and thanks to Trip Advisor reviews, we knew exactly what to expect!

Very nice people! We had a wonderful ride and the guide was very knowledgeable and answered questions we had regarding the battle. The horse wranglers were great as well.

Awesome to see the battlefield by horseback. As you go along old trails in the woods between the fields, you get such a powerful sense of the history. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable. Pam and Hickory Hollow Horse Farm were so accommodating of our tricky timing. They are safety conscious and take great care of the horses. Thumbs up!

This was my second time taking the guided horseback battlefield tour and it is absolutely amazing! It makes the whole Gettysburg experience more relatable to that era in time. Everyone at Hickory Hollow was very polite, professional and supportive. This is a must do at least once while visiting Gettysburg.

Trip was very informative. They added information that was not addressed on the other tours. Staff was very attentive to the group. The animals were very well behaved and easy to work with especially for a new rider. I think that it is a great way to see the battleground from the perspective of those that fought.
