True trail ride
MichaelA_Q
, Oct 2021
The Azalea Trail ride will be challenging to first time riders, if unfamiliar with horses and uneven terrain. That said, our guide CJ was ever vigilant as to the needs and status of his riders. He ensured that for every step that you were in control and also aware of what you were seeing around you. This was a true trail ride, with one small window vista; the majority of the ride was in the woods.
