Honestly one of the better horseback riding places to go. Me and my friend went had a great time. The girl that took us on our ride was a little shy I guess didn't really interact with us much. Also the guy was a little grumpy but it happens. Other than that it's totally worth it. Loved the view and the horses. I'll definitely be returning!
Always Apleasure to go here. The staff is friendly and helpful. They take wonderful care of their horses and animals.
We were here yesterday and it was a beautiful trail. The horses were so well behaved and our guides, Kirstin and Sierra, were so friendly. They were very knowledgeable on both the horses and the trails and Sierra in the back helped me with my eating horse multiple times. She checked on us often kept us laughing and made sure we were having a blast. I'm sure the other guide was just as fun in the front. The blonde checking us in was also friendly but quiet. The reason I give it four stars is because of the older man, Milton. He could be heard making comments about squishing the horse and he sighed at my stature. I am 160ish pounds, way under their weight limit. He was also extremely rude to his employees. I hope for their sake he was just having a bad day because the way he treats not only his customers but his employees is unacceptable.
Nice place. Nice staff. Good experience.
The older man leading the trail ride was extremely rude, as noted by reviewers on this site and others. Awful. For example, he told my ten year old son that he'd had blind kids ride the horse better than he could. He said similar, totally unnecessary ugly comments to myself and my daughter. He was quite nasty with the very nice woman in the shop as well. Ruined our experience. Go somewhere else for your horseback riding in Canaan.
