The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about horses and gave us adequate instruction for the ride. A licensed Gettysburg Historical Guide gave us a 2 hour narrative during the entire trail ride with an excellent historical perspective. We rode on original Gettysburg battle trails that most don't get to see. Worth every penny.

Knowledgeable, informative and up beat. Very helpful. Didn’t make me feel incompetent or nervous. Experienced the battlefield the way the soldiers would have seen it. Highly recommend this event.

The guides were great. Good content about Gettysburg, great views in the trail and there were a lot of guides to make you feel comfortable if you were a beginner rider. Very enjoyable.

What a fabulous way to get an up-close tour of the Gettysburg battlefields! Andie was a phenomenal guide, and it was heartwarming to see how well taken care of the horses were!

If you love history and horses, this is the best way to experience the battle fields of Gettysburg. Professional and kind group of people make this company #1 in my book.
