When we got there they said they didn't have a reservation for us. Come to find out, their software was 20 years old. We lucked out because we were the only ones there so it was like a private ride. Our guides name was Nole. He was very friendly and very chatty which made a fun ride for us. The best part of our experience was the way he talked to the horses. I was able to see their personalities and relationships with each other and with Nole which was incredible to witness. This Travel Zoo deal was 45 minutes away from where we stayed (also a Travel Zoo deal) but it was well worth the scenic drive. Nole also recommended a restaurant to eat at when we left which was also a great experience.

Out tour guide, Veda, was so informational and enjoyable to be around! The horses were obviously very well taken care of and the environment was stunning!
