"The ride was really enjoyable! The guide was easy going and nice, and we loved the horses. The trail was beautiful and somewhat challenging, but safe. I recommend this place to anyone staying in the area!" - Troy Capehart

Such a wonderful experience. The staff was excellent. The horses were great, and the farm had horses for every age and experience level. The scenery (mountains, streams, pastures) were beautiful, especially this time of year with the leaves changing. I was a first time trail rider, and I am so thankful I chose this farm for my first experience.

Couldn't have met a kinder bunch of folks. The farm was a bit to be desired, although it may be because it had been raining off and on for about a month. The house you pull up to and enter to pay etc... is not the nicest place you'd think a business was ran out of, but Travis and his father are probably two of the greatest people you'd ever meet, and the horses are very much taken care of and loved, that's obvious. They are true horse lovers. Travis took great care of us and was consistently monitoring our safety. The price is a bit high, but was worth the trip to Dutch Creek!
