"Sooo much fun!! Our hotel recommended this ranch and we had a great time. We went on the ATVs and then horseback riding. The staff were excellent. Really great with us and the kids. We felt like we were at a dude ranch in Arizona!!! If you are in the area I would highly recommend visiting the ranch. Very reasonable prices and great for families."canadianey65
"Fantastic horse trekking We had a great time trekking. The horses were sublime, even tempered and responsive and Denis our guide made sure we all had a good time. For lunch we had the most amazing barbecue of traditional Abruzzo fare with wine and beer and drank water from a natural spring. The highlight of the trek was in the afternoon when we cantered across the plains amongst hundreds of wild horses with their foals. Highly recommended and we will certainly return"Sevengables

The scenery of the area is gorgeous! I highly recommend it. Dennis was very accommodating and pleasant. We didn't ride the horses but plan on it next time.".saturnia57
