Great time. You ride the horses out into a shallow bay, then serpentine back through deep water, where they literally float. This was a first for me, an experienced rider, and a blast for my non-riding cousins. Gypsy Vanners, well groomed and healthy. Tack neat...More

Yes! Absolutely! My group of 4 were 61, 57, 37, and 39...none of us had any riding experience at all and it was a great experience. They are very helpful with the horses and you do not go fast at all.
