The entire experience was exceptional. Our host was so gracious and caring. He even took the time to enrich us about all of his horses after the trail. The extra mile made it even more of a bonus. We have done a few horseback riding in the past but never felt so taken care of. The scene, host, horses and family spirit is alive! We’ll be back for more next year!
An experience we’ll never forget

What a great experience! Our tour guide Jules was both incredibly funny but also knowledgeable and kind. He toured our group through the private equestrian property. The horses were well behaved (and loved to eat every chance they could sneak!) and the views of the country side were magnificent. I highly recommend this experience for others.

My 9 year old daughter and I spent a wonderful afternoon horseback riding with Jules and his horses. The setting is stunning and the ride appropriate for beginners and up. At the start of the ride, Jules hands out brushes and you spend a little time brushing and getting acquainted with the horses! Jules and his family were very welcoming and warm. Jules takes his time to get to know his riders…it didn’t feel like we were “on the clock” but more like a bunch of friends going out for a ride. I appreciated that!
