Add this experience to your must do list while in Waco! We had a great evening despite the light rain and lack of an actual sunset! Even overcast the view was amazing! We enjoyed the fire, hot chocolate and s’mores! I’ll definitely do this experience again next time I return to Waco!

Cowboy Ricky was an excellent host. He engaged with my youngest and made sure she had a great time and felt safe. We all enjoyed and will be back.

This was a great experience. I do not ride horses at all, so I didn't know what to expect, but our guide Ricky gave us great instructions and the horses were very mellow and responsive to instructions. The ride up and down the mountain was a lot of fun, and Ricky was a great storyteller and full of knowledge about the area. The smores and hot chocolate at the top of the mountain were a great touch, especially on a chilly evening - and the view/sunset were beautiful. Great trip and would recommend to everyone!

This is an amazing experience. I was a first time rider, and the hosts are gracious and professional. They will give you a quick run-through and get you settled on your horse. The trails were beautiful and I really connected with my horse...it was the most amazing feeling. Everyone should try this at least once.
