Our family group of 10 enjoyed our trip to Dutch Creek Trails. Our group ages ranged from 7 - 70. Don't expect a nice flat country trail ride, after all, this is in the mountains. The trail was rocky and wet because it had been raining but the horses handled it well. None of us were experienced riders so it... More

The owner was very friendly and informative. The trails were a bit rocky in areas which made it a little rough on the horses but they still did great, not as many good views as I expected but a very nice relaxing ride as we were the only couple riding that day. Will definitely go back next time we are... More

We had a last minute cancellation elsewhere and called Dutch Creek last minute based on reviews. They were able to get us in for a ride the same day. Nice horses, nice people, nice quiet ride through the woods, and a nice casual atmosphere.

Beautiful place! super friendly family run! Horses in great shape and well cared for. Trail ride was nice, some steep inclines no vistas or views but the horses were so nice as well as the staff would def ride here again. Very accommodating to my youngest who had never ridden before. The tractor ride over to the horses was a... More

This review is long overdue. My teen daughter and I were looking for a last-minute activity before our "boys" got into town, something close to Boone. I called the night before Columbus Day. They set up a ride just for us the next morning, even though there wasn't one scheduled. Our guide took us on an extra long ride, and,... More

Our family of 8 enjoyed this place. The owners were down to earth and very patient. We were all beginners so we required a lot of assistance. The guides were very helpful and provided a bit of comedy along the trail. The entire riding tour lasted about 2 hours and was very interesting. Make sure to wear long jeans and... More

The owner and his wife are extremely nice and funny. The trail ride itself was a good length but had no views and on other trips I've been on guides have given the history of the area, not this one. My horse was smart enough to walk over a small tree and it got spooked and knocked me off. Very... More

My ten year old grandson along with his friend and I recently visited Dutch Creek Trails for the first time (we were actually there about five years ago but he was not able to ride because he was not six years old yet). We researched the reviews for horseback riding in the Boone/Valle Cruces area and found that Dutch Creek... More
