Oh how nice... Fall is finally here with cooler weather, and the horses are feeling great.  We've got 4 new ones... come and meet them.  And, of course, RIDE, REALLY RIDE!!!

My daughter, Daisy, takes a weekly lesson at Cypress Trails and the staff couldn't be nicer and more professional.  She not only trains on the grounds but on trails as well and is having the time of her life.  Cypress Trails has a beautiful area for my other daughter and I to wait...enjoying the horses, smelling the fresh air, reading books and greeting the sweet barn dogs and cats.  It's truly a wonderful experience for everyone.

I went to Cypress Trails for the first time today and had a wonderful time! I began riding when I was very small and have not ridden horses as much as I would have liked, through the years. I rode a beautiful Tennessee Walker, "Wilkie," led by Matt, (who was awesome!) and the 1 1/2 hours seemed to fly by. It was the best riding experience I have had in many years. The equestrian trail was fantastic. I was surprised to immediately be on a beautiful trail, along Cypress Creek, after we left the stables. I felt like I was in the mountains (!)...with many beautiful trees. This was truly a wonderful experience and I will become a regular rider at Cypress Trails. Thank you to Matt, my leader/wrangler and Tammy and all the nice people I met here. I HIGHLY recommend Cypress Trails if you love horses like I do. It's obvious that the horses are treated in a loving, caring manner. Thank you!! :)

My husband bought me 2 hours for today. Having not ridden for over 20 years I was a little bit nervous. My guide, I believe his name is Matt, was wonderful and very patient with me. He explained what was around me and how to do things better. Everyone I dealt with was kind and professional, from the confirmation email and phone call to the last moment I was there. I will absolutely be back.

What a fun experience for our family - my husband and I and our two children went to Cypress Trails for an hour and a half trail ride, and everyone had a great time - even me, and that was my first time on a horse! The horses were great, the folks couldn't have been nicer, and we definitely want to go back. SO much nicer than riding around in a boring dirt arena, which is all my kids had gotten to do before. Being out in nature on those beautiful trails really made this experience!

.Wow I’m impressed with the owner who responded to that one person who bad experience. That is the way to keep your business up and running by taking feedback without getting upset. As they say customers are right even if they are wrong.

I had a horrible experience here. I booked a lunch ride for two and it was our anniversary and the instructor that took us for the ride was impolite. Since the beginning the horse wasn't cooperating I think peaches was the name they couldn't catch the horse. Finally were on the ride and the horse wasn't wanting to follow direction. The instructor was very upset with me and wasnt ashamed about it. I tried to explain I don't ride horses occasionally, but this didn't seem right. The horse just wasn't wanting to cooperate. And he just kept telling us, we need to get there on time and the horses are properly instructed to be back by a certain time and if they don't they take off and then we have a bigger problem because you could get hurt since you don't look like you could control this animal. This really made me upset. What I found the most unprofessional was him making a call and telling whoever it was at the main location that this "woman doesn't understand I told her the horses understand she's just taking her time". And I told him look I understand, but this is not my problem I don't want to mistreat a horse because they are a powerful animal. I did not appreciate his attitude I don't even want to go back because of the way he was with us, and how disorganized it was.

Le Nina, sorry you had an unfortunate experience. I will definitely have a talk with your wrangler. I would like to know his name if you happen to remember. My e mail is darolyn@ swbell.net. You may send it to that e mail if you like. Peaches is a big horse, she is well trained, but horses, like children, have to be closely controlled. We try to give instruction before we leave the ranch, and most people, even novice riders, hopefully pick up the basics of how to control the horses. Once the horse realizes that you are not going to control them, they, again like children, will try to take advantage of the rider. The wrangler should have, perhaps been more patient, but they are human, and also get frustrated when riders don't seem to be taking their instruction regarding how to manage the horse. If a rider refuses to control the horse, it can become dangerous for them and the other people on the ride. And sometimes the wrangler gets more forceful in order to try to get the rider to do as told in order to keep the excursion safe for all. It doesn't sound like you have an affinity for horses or riding.... Some people don't. Taking on a 5 hr lunch ride was quite a challenging ride for a novice rider, and I admire you for tackling that in itself. Regarding that time frame, that is the other reason the wrangler was trying to keep you on schedule. If the ride doesn't keep on schedule it increases your time in the saddle to maybe 6 hrs on that 12 mile ride, and the added time in the saddle is detrimental to your comfort and overall mental state as well. In closing, once again, sorry for your angst, We will try to improve our initial instruction so all novice riders will feel more in control of their horses. Darolyn Butler

I brought my 2.5 year old grandson for his first pony ride. Tammy checked us in, but she had to re-saddle Plato with their smallest saddle since my grandson could barely reach the stirrups. He did just fine though as I walked them around the property. He had a blast!! Wonderful place and Tammy and the other staff were great!

Austin, Tammy is one of the nicest persons for sure. We are so glad you had a good experience. Hope to see you for many years to come. Darolyn/Owner

Has been several times that we had visited this nice place, we have a son in the Autism spectrum and since the first time he and us we enjoy riding in the trails and the horses are wonderful with people specially with kids. We have nice memories captured from that place. The staff is awesome. Planning to visit you all again soon, the weather is getting perfect for it. We highly recommend it specially in Spring and Fall.
