The ride was very nice through several creeks, the woods, and a pasture. But the best part was that one of the guides followed on foot and used my cell phone to take pictures. I’m not talking about one picture, like most places will do,...More

Trail ride was great. Took you through a wooded area and across a creek a couple times and up and down some hills. Not just a loop in a corn field somewhere. Horses were perfect, not total trail ride zombies, but still very well behaved,...More

Soooo, went there cause the guy said we could do the petting zoo even though it was too muddy to ride. However, when we got there, the petting zoo was not “open” and we were met with objection to even being there. Oh well, we...More

We enjoyed the trail ride through the woods, and even across a small stream. Our guides actually walked near us and took lots of great photos.

My husband and I were in the Starved Rock area and wanted to go horseback riding and I'm glad we decided to go to Cedar Creek. It's a super cute property with horses and a restaurant called Gunsmoke Grill which was also wonderful! We went...More

Not worth the $$. Nothing special, basically doing a circle around the owners ranch on very slow horses for about 45 minutes. I've been on many wonderful horse trails in many parts of the world and this just did not compare!

The horses and people were nice, the colors were beautiful.... But the place is a bit unprofessional. The guides didn't ride horses!? They walked the entire trail with us!?!? All those miles talking to us while we all road our horses? Weird.
