Dustin & Greg are great. The horses are well cared for and well trained. The ranch and ride was BEAUTIFUL. Unfortunately, we did not see the sunset for the fog. BUT. the atmosphere reminded me of beautiful Scotland. I would do this all over again!

We had a great ride through beautiful landscapes and then literally watched the sunset. My daughter who is an avid rider was able to canter and trot and it was not your usual nose to tail tour. I highly highly recommend!

What a lovely experience! The horses are beautiful and pretty calm, although they still have personality and spunk. Staff are professional and knowledgeable and safe. They have a sense of humour and made the ride interesting. It was nice to be able to ride the...More
