13 year old and mom enjoyed this ride ALOT! If you don’t like to ride (I don’t) there is not much to do at the corral, so consider leaving and coming back while the family rides.

My 13 year old daughter and I took an extended ride ( less than 2 hours). Making reservations was easy. Check in easy. This is the most pricey horse riding place in the Lake Tahoe area. Helmets are not required ( even for my daughter)....More
