Felt Very Safe on These Sure-Footed Horses

Took a one-hour trail ride last week. They seem to keep to small groups which was ideal for us. We were a party of four. The horses were so well-behaved and well-cared for. The trail looped over/through the Snake River and crossing the river was a highlight for us. We are novice riders and felt very safe on these sure-footed horses. Would highly recommend this trip for a group of all ages!
