  • This is an awesome place to visit if you have an Old MacDonald obsessed toddler like I do. Both of my boys (2 & 4 years old) loved it here. The petting zoo is fun and pony rides were the highlight. Our 16 year old also went on a horseback ride and loved it. All the people that work here are very nice. This is now something we will do on a regular basis.
  • Staff is awesome! I went with my daughter and we both have very little experience riding, but the staff was very patient with us. Very reasonably priced. Can't wait to do it again.
  • We rode with our family. The desert was beautiful. The guide was very knowledgeable and good at her job. My 8 year old had a blast!!!
  • Great ride for kids and beginners. Our ride did not have any trot or canter, just walking. But was great. Took my 7 year old and she LOVED it!!! Horses are well cared for and staff was great. Will definitely go back!
  • Always look forward to seeing this farm every October. Horse rides, games, mazes, petting zoo area and much more! This place has its all. Thank you!!
