Customer Reviews

This ride may have been the highlight of my stay in the Crags. I booked an afternoon ride for the day I arrived. My arrival time was earlier than check in time at my lodge and I considered the ride to be a good way to spend that time, especially since it was close to my lodge. My guide, Cephus, was an absolute delight. I was immediately confident in his ability as a horseman and guide and quickly found him to be a cheerful, interesting conversationalist! My sweet little mount was Biscuit. I am a rather seasoned rider and was initially disappointed in Biscuit's slow, casual saunter. I couldn't have been more wrong about him. I may have never ridden a more delightful horse! Calm, responsive, and sure footed as any horse I've ridden he was full of personality and loved to run! We trotted down forest paths, crossed twinkling streams, and cantered across open fields. Biscuit can do it all. I am completely smitten with him. Two hours passed like minutes and we were all too soon back at the lovely stable. I could have easily enjoyed and entire day with Cephus and Biscuit. Don't miss a chance to ride here. If you do, please give Biscuit a hug and an extra carrot for me. - Michele

A no-frills experience, but we all had a great time and our guide made sure our 7-year-old adventurer was well taken care of. A lovely way to spend the morning. - Al

Unfortunately the second hour of our ride was through very thick mud and made it unpleasant for the horses and us. This is the second time we've ridden with Kurland and we find the experience quite professional. - Tracy

This was an absolutely brilliant experience. The instructor was nice and the scenery was so beautiful. The skilled riders were allowed to run when we reached the open fields and the horses are very calm as well as responsive. Worth every minute and penny. - Michaela

Fantastic experience, guides were amazing would highly recommend, beautiful terrain. - James
