Really nice tour with interesting info about the history of the area. Ally was great at talking to everyone and making them feel comfortable and matching them with a horse. There were 4 in our group: one had never been on a horse, one had only ridden twice, and the last two of us had a little bit of experience. Ally gave great instructions and made everyone feel comfortable and confident. We had a nice ride up into the hills with her giving us some interesting details about the area and history. The stop at the historic hotel was a nice break the cider was very refreshing, and then we finished with a canter back to the stables.

Tip: There isn't any shade along the ride, so make sure to put on sun lotion!
