Arrived at meet up location to find horses saddled up and ready to be distributed to riders. Sign in was efficient and informative. Be prepared with riders liability waivers filled out and signed in your email communication with vendor (Inadvertently, I completely missed this step through email communication, but was able to complete the on-line forms and submit on the spot). You are in charge of properly sizing the provided helmet, so make adequate time for this step. Bring along a water bottle (2-hour ride without stops); your horse is outfitted with a bottle holder. Also, since there are no potty-stops on this excursion, think about taking care of those needs ahead of time at the Campground port-a-potty. Members of my group had never before been on a horse. The instructions and supervision given by the staff were very good for these first-time riders (ages 8 and 10). The day was perfect for a trail ride. The guide was amazing in his monologue of battlefield events.
Kevin Bryant was the best and most knowledgeable guide I've ever met. He was engaging and brought the battle to life for us. My daughter was mesmerized! I would highly recommend this tour. It's cost effective, enjoyable, and educational - all wrapped up in one!
Loved this so much! It was my first time on a horse, but I did not feel scared because the guide/trainers were very good at what they do. It was beautiful, and the tour guide was very informative and funny. I would highly recommend this experience!
The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Gettysburg, The carriage was comfortable and well maintained. The horses were beautiful and friendly.
Loved horseback riding through the battlegrounds... the hide guide was super knowledgeable and did a great job while on horseback. I can't wait to do it again.
