My nephew came for a visit from KY and had never been on a horse. It was a great time. We went to a beautiful park and the horses were so sweet. We rode Joey and JR. The stables are very nice and Sandy, our guide, was informative, attentive and safe. Will definitely go again!

I treated my nephew and his new bride to horseback riding during their visit from NYC. Unfortunately, we weren't privy to the same experiences as others. Sandy appeared to be friendly; she was never rude. However, as we awaited Sandy to feed the horses, we were directed outside so that she could bring each of us a horse; this took... More

The horses are wonderful, and the restroom doubles as a tack room. There is a resident cat named Bozo, and a resident chicken named Cluck. The whole experience... More

Sandy takes you on a 1 hour ride on very calm horses. I have never really been riding before but was ready and able to do so after only 30 seconds of instructions. The part of the ride around a lake/pond in a park under the 200 year old oak trees is like out of a fairy tale. So beautiful.... More

We had a great time at the ranch. Everyone was so friendly and inviting. Thank you too to Sandy, for so much fun! The girls enjoyed riding and selfies with the horses! It was a great experience and very memorable. The river was close too.

We had the best stay in the ranch, everything was great, the cottage was wonderful, all clean and nice and we had the horse right behind us, we really enjoy our stay there and the ride in the morning! Is the best place to stay if you want to go to Rainbow Spring Park

While vacationing at Rainbow River we took a day to go horseback riding. Sandy was took our reservation even with only one days notice. The horses were in great shape and the grounds were well kept. The trails were in the neighborhood and nearby park. Was a nice experience. Would visit again

Great place to ride the trails. The horses are all well trained and well taken care of. If you need lessons, you will be very happy with Sandy Grenz who is an experienced and excellent instructor.
