Bobbie Houston, owner and her staff are the very best! We rode Sterling and Remington, two beautiful, well cared for horses on a desert trail ride. This is the place to go for a trail ride. Fantastic!

Fun time. A few things I would have added was a time for photos. And maybe a little history on the area in which we were touring thru.

It is typically not recommended to ride a horse while pregnant, especially beyond the first trimester.
