I couldn't say more about this awesome company. We had a lot of first time riders in our group, and some that were a little scared to ride a horse. The caretakers and operators made sure that everyone was comfortable on the horse, and made mounting and dismounting a breeze. They went over safety directions very thoroughly, and I could tell that their horses were extremely loved and well maintained. They skillfully matched every horse personality up to each rider, and took into consideration the needs of every rider, including one party member in her 70s with an iffy knee. I would 100% recommend this horseback riding tour for any family. It is absolutely worth the cost, and you can tell the expertise all of the individuals involved in this operation. Where else will you get historical tour on horseback? It is clear that they have been in this business for 40 years and know and love their horses and their craft.
Took my daughter for her 7th birthday, and we couldn't have had a better time. They chose the right horse for her being a beginner, and encouraged her the whole time riding. The tour guide talking about Gettysburg was great and very knowledgeable. They even made sure we could ride with rain in the forecast by moving our time up an hour, and the weather participated nicely. We would recommend this trail ride to anyone!
