Beautiful barn with well kept, well behaved horses. The owner first spent 5-10 minutes assessing our girls ability, and then designed a trail ride and set of challenges that matched their ability. The highlight of the week!

It’s not very close to any wineries that i saw. They have trails and back roads that they take the horses on. Plus we also had the dog and goats follow us on our ride!
