My boyfriend and I went for the trail ride and had a great time. David was very knowledgeable on the history of the surrounding land. The horses were great (Cricket and Lily). He took photos of us as well. Nice time!

Nice, friendly staff. Informed us on the demeanor of the horses. My 12 yr old had never ridden so he enjoyed the low key experience. We would do again and recommend for a nice family experience.
