While visiting my in-laws for Thanksgiving five of us saddled up at Dead Broke. We received thorough instructions- and many good tips for those of us who've rode before. Hunter demonstrated tips for a safe and enjoyable ride including some of the "why's" of how a horse responds to commands. Very interesting for a beginning rider. It's clear they care for their horses and know how to help the casual rider treat them well. It was a cool, sunny day (in the 40's) so we rugged up a bit and were perfectly comfortable. Ashley and Kristin were our guides for the ride and they led us through the most lovely sun-dappled wooded trails. The horses know the way which left me able to take in the beautiful leaf-covered rolling hills, fern-lined creeks and docile deer we encountered. I was near the front of the line (my horse Tammy Faye wouldn't have it any other way) and noticed Ashley was good at reminding us of and reinforcing the tips Hunter gave us during our ride. My brother-in-law had never been on a horse before and Ashley went back and gave him a bit of extra help when he had trouble giving commands. I felt safe and the terrain was varied so I was fascinated at every turn. We rode for an hour which was sufficient for me since I only ride once every few years. Hunter described a service in which they serve a picnic lunch to break up a 2-hour ride- that sounds lovely and I would have like to try that too- maybe next time! Our whole group (ages 40 to 65) enjoyed our ride and highly recommend these fine folks.
