Had the very best time on this horseback riding session. My wife and 8 year old rode together and they were a bit nervous at first but we’re put at ease by the instructors and we’re able to relax and enjoy themselves the entire time. Sunset was amazing and we would totally recommend!!

This was a super fun experience. Lem and Brayden were amazing in guiding us through everything, and the storytelling and jokes added to the fun. The horses are very well trained which made the ride very smooth. The landscape is great and the sunset with the s’mores and hot chocolate was a perfect highlight to the whole experience.
