Our guide/instructor was very friendly, she was informed and had a great attitude
Carissa who was our guide made us feel very comfortable. Was great with my daughter who had never been on a horse before and I loved that she continuously helped her throughout the ride. She was friendly and sociable. We had a blast. Will definitely return
I was expecting more pictures to be taken. I think only saw/received one picture for me and my friend.
My 11-year old daughter and I had a great ride! The staff made the ride pleasant and memorable, and the horses were friendly. I highly recommend S&D Horseback Riding. Thank you!
Thought this led to the water
I'm glad my nephew had a fantastic time. However I think the assembly line of how things are setup was off-putting. I have a lot of anxiety and I made this clear when I got there and I feel they should have spent more time with me trying to ease me into riding the horse. I know the guides are not therapist but not everyone is the same and a little empathy goes a long way. Being told to keep up when you're holding on for dear life because you are afraid of the horse isn't the most comforting thing to hear. I'm glad the guide eventually took the red rope and started guiding my horse that helped a little. I think if someone shows up a half-hour early spending two minutes explaining how riding a horse works and the rest of the time being condescendingly chastised for not following the exact orders isn't great. It didn't help that the people in our group had ridden before and were fear free so in essence causing more anxiety because you don't want them to have a bad time waiting up for you. So in all I'm happy my nephew had a great time but I think it will be a long while before I attempt to ride a horse again.
