I have no idea why others did not have a good greeting experience. They promptly greeted us. We had great conversation because we made conversation. The owner (male) was very friendly and answered any questions we had about the farm, the horses, the area etc. The ride was great. The horses were groomed before we went on them and it... More

My husband & I got to plan a mini vacation in early Aug 2015. On our list was to go horseback riding. Brace's Stables provided us with a great experience and a enjoyable afternoon! The creek walk trail was beautiful and our guide was very nice. We look forward to visiting this stable with our family next summer.

We went on a one-hour ride. They hadn't given much thought to the route -- most of it was on paved roads, with passing cars -- and there weren't many sights to behold. The guide did not provide explanations of anything we saw or passed, and didn't give much guidance for novice riders. I'm just thankful we only did one... More

We have never had a bad time here. The staff is very accommodating and will line you up with a horse close to your abilities and skill level.

Like others have said, the customer service needs work here. We had the same experience others have mentioned upon arrival: no greeting, left standing there feeling uncomfortable. It almost seemed like we were a bother. The ride was nice and the horses seemed mild and were responsive, however, our guide didn't help much at all - at one point leaving... More
