Staff was terrific!! Knowledgeable, kind and super nice to the animals and people. Had my 3 year olds on a pony lead and the two cowgirls who took them around really were awesome (Emma & Maddie). Will go back for sure!!
We took the hour tour after a big rainstorm so there was a lot of mud. It took longer than the hour allotted but i was not complaining. I rode Boundary and he was a very sweet and well behaved boy. Be prepared for mosquitos!
Great for beginners of all ages. Staff very helpful and friendly.Very conscientious making sure all cents are safe. Gave me a chance to reacquaint myself with horseback riding. Last time I rode was almost 30 years ago!
The staff were great, the views spectacular. The only word of caution is that if you've had any horseback riding experience you will find this ride boring as there is no galloping or cantering allowed,slow walk for 2 hours. Ladies don't do your hair as it's mandatory you wear a helmet that's supplied by the barn, not the cleanest.
The tour is great and the lady guide is very thoughtful and responsible. What I'm going to complain is the rate that I got from VIATOR is the exactly same that we can get from their online official website. This is the first time that I get no savings via Viator!!
The staff was very friendly, helpful and provided helmets for all riders. The check-in was a bit chaotic - no verification of payment or ID was required. Although the online registration requested riding level it made no difference, most riders were inexperienced and we were all treated the same. The ride was very slow and the mosquitoes were terrible.
