My family had such fun learning about the war while riding those beautiful, gentle horses. Staff was attentive and friendly...any initial anxiety drifted away. The guide was well informed and spoke the entire 2 hours....no problem hearing, because you have an earpiece on. Loved it!

This is the second year in a row we took our grandkids horseback riding here and they enjoyed it so much. Hickory Hollow Horse Farm is a great experience. They are friendly, fun, knowledgeable and make it a great experience. We would highly recommend them.

Hi there is there a possibility of booking a longer ride for two with a licensed battlefield guide on Sunday July 9th? 3-4 hours of riding starting around 4 pm? Thanks for considering!
