When we made the reservations to ride, our appointment was at 11 but we were told to arrive at 10:30 to fill out liability forms. We got there around 10:20 but we weren't called for our ride until 11:15. All the horses had to be pulled from the barn and riders had to mount so we didn't leave the barn until a little after 11:40 . The men working at the barn were all smoking in and around the barn as well as around those of us that paid for the ride. A mom from another family joked to her kid that it must be a requirement that you smoke in order to get a job here because we saw almost every single employee with a cigarette in their hand/mouth at some point while we were there. Everyone was assigned a horse I'm guessing based on their weight because they never asked anyone about their riding abilities. All of the horses were filthy. They had mud caked on them and had matted manes and tails. It was obvious that it had been a while since any of them had been brushed or had their hooves picked. It had rained the morning before and this created some mud but if the horses had been brushed the morning that we road, they wouldn't have had mud on their backs and necks. I did enjoy the ride since it involved going up and down small hills and wasn't just a flat ride. We had a very large group (15 horses, 17 riders) so we had to stop quite frequently for those that were starting to lag behind. The horse I was given wasn't the typical push button horse that you can sometimes get on these rides but still knew what his job was. We paid for an hour ride but really only rode for 45 minutes. There are signs all over the place telling you to tip the guide while waiting for the ride, we were told during the pre-ride lecture to tip the guide, and there was also a sign at the end of the ride telling you to tip the guide. I do feel like this is slightly over priced and that should help to cover the guides fees but there are coupons available that you can get at lots of hotels. Overall it was a fun experience but there are definitely things that the barn and its workers could do to improve. There are other options to ride at and we'll probably try another option before returning here.
She tried to stop and eat alot and lagged behind. But my daughter didn't mind not going fast. Nice and funny guides. Bring your coupon
we got the one hour ride. Michael our guide was so nice and friendly. talked to us like he knew us. very genuine. I purchased the combo ticket that gave me the ride and other activities...WELL WORTH the money...next time me and "mustang sally" (my horse I got on my ride) agreed to do 2 hours lol. be back again soon!!
We went riding with our daughters age 6 and 8. They each got to ride their own horse and did great. The horses were gorgeous and big but were a bit slow which was great for beginners. We rode up and down small mountains for an hour. It started to rain during our ride but we continued riding with no problem. My family really enjoyed it and the staff was great and friendly and waited for us (we ran 5 mins late). I appreciated that. Thanks
