The horses was all very tame and easy for a beginner to ride. The staff was great ,especially our guide Raven. The price was average and the one hour tour was excellent and very scenic with a combination of woods trails and open fields

This place is absolutely amazing. It is the only place in Cave City where u can ride the Alpine Slide, visit a cave, get on bumper boats, go karts, bumper cars, play miniature golf and just have a good time.
