Guide was great and the trip was nice, but honestly, and I am not a horse expert, I felt bad for my horse. He sneezed and wheezed the whole trip. I felt bad that he was out and having to take me around given that his lungs sounded like they were purring for the whole trip. Horses seemed cared for... More

My Husband, daughter and I had a blast. It was more fun that I expected. The trails very very nice and even saw deer on the trail. The people were very nice, they have a cute petting zoo and a nice country store. I would definitely go back for more.

Staff were friendly and patient. My horse Moonshine was the perfect match for me as a first timer. We took a beautiful long stroll through the forest and country side. Soldier was a steed in front of me that was quite frisky but still well behaved. All the horses were well trained and orderly.

We are a group of experienced riders who are just trying to ride in every state. This was one of the few places I could find that rides year around. The guides were friendly and easy going. We had a pretty ride up the mountain and the guides took pictures of us at the top with the peak of the... More

Our family's sunset ride with Mountain Trail was the highlight of our leaf-peeping trip to Canaan Valley! So glad we booked. My 7-year-old was afraid of horses and wouldn't even go on a pony ride at a petting zoo. They separated all the kids out early, put her on a small, gentle horse (Jake) up in front near the lead...

I really appreciate smart business people. And these people are very smart. They offer clean surroundings, friendly guides, a full gift shop, a clean bathroom, and extras like a petting zoo and gemstone mining. You could spend an entire morning there if you wanted. And for someone like me who is afraid of horses (but felt I should be a... More

A little hesitant about riding horses but my husband was looking forward to the ride. He is more experienced than I, so I requested a gentle horse. The ride was fantastic, slow paced which allowed us to see deer in the woods. Everyone from small kids to older riders seemed to enjoy the ride. If you get a chance to... More

Milton and his staff went above and beyond to make for a great experience for our daughter who is visually impaired and also has physical disabilities. They were patient, compassionate and kind.

Overall our trip was alright. My kids really enjoyed the petting zoo and the young workers in the zoo were extremely friendly and fun for my kids to interact with. My family has been riding for years so we choose the 1.5 hour ride, it was a nice ride through beautiful hills. The horses seemed well taken care of and... More
