We took one of our grandkids here for her birthday to ride a horse for the first time ever. The great folks at Shadow Glen took excellent care of her, put her on the perfect animal, and the girl had the time of her life. The staff makes every effort to match the rider to the horse for the type... More

Lots of open space, chickens, goats and more. Also its very clean. The trail is nothing fancy... after all its Sacramento- so theres... More

Within 15 minutes of starting out, I heard, "I want to do this again for my birthday!", from the girls. After a brief instruction while in the saddle, we were given the reins.We were in total control of our own... More

I've been boarding at Shadow Glen for over a year now & I love it! The immediate access to the American River trails is great. But that's not the best part, the facility owners take OUTSTANDING care of all the horses. It's great to know my horse is watched over all the time (even during middle of the night thunderstorms)!...

The paddocks had no shelters and they keep them locked, which would be unsafe for the horses in an emergency. For those reasons, I decided not to board my horses there.

Took my 8yo son for a 1 hour trail ride. Good guides, great scenery and fair price. Only downside was it was hard to hear the leader talk about the history of the region as I was 4 horses back Strongly recommend for novice riders/families.
