Excellent session for first time riding. We took my daughter for her 6th birthday and they helped all of us learn the basics of how to operate our horse. They listened well to those of us who were unsure or even fearful of horses. The teachers were completely helpful and gave us a great set of basic skills. We had... More

Booked a two-hour ride. Wife and I are experienced riders and we own and train horses. We arrived 15 minutes early as requested and were forced to endure a 45 minutes "safety" lecture and wait while the staff saddled the horses. To our chagrin, they then took the 45 minutes off of our two-hour ride time. I paid $200.00 for... More

For my birthday, my husband surprised me with a horse riding package complete with lessons and a trail ride. I hadn't ridden in over 40 years (and not very often) and my husband had never been on a horse. Chelsea, our instructor, was excellent. She explained everything clearly and her riding lessons were fun and full of energy. They even... More

This is light years better than the usual trail ride companies that just stick you on a horse and go. Dream Ridge took time to introduce us to our horses and let us get to know them/feed them. They taught us how to sit in our saddles properly and guide the horse through our body movement and verbal commands. We... More

For anyone that has never been on a horse before I don't think horse back riding gets any better than this. We were greeted by two nice instructors that led us threw all the basics including bonding with the horses by first feeding them carrots . No hurrying or rushing us threw the steps. The stable and the horses all... More

I really appreciated the owner's TLC with the horses and their guests! I also loved starting the trip by hearing from the previous riders how much fun they had just had on their ride.

I first went to Dream Ridge three years ago for a birthday party and then again with my children recently. On both visits I was beyond impressed with the attention to safety, quality instruction, and really intuitive support from Karen and the staff at Dream Ridge. High caliber horses are used for instruction, the entire environment indoor and out is... More

I have been riding horses most of my life and chose to look into this place because of a friend. I was over charged the first time I went there as I was quoted thirtyfive dollars for one hour and was charged because the instructor charged me for the wasted time she was busy doing something else for someone else....

If you want to learn to ride a horse, this is a great place to come. The teacher presented a clear explanation of all areas of how to ride and made my experience very pleasant. I had a wonderful time and the horse they chose for me was the best match. I am definitely going to go riding again and... More

This stable cashed a check from my account over a year after it was written, throwing off all of the balances and overdrawing my account. There is no acceptable reason to wait this long to cast a check. I will be contacting the owner and the Better Business Bereau about this irresponsible action.
