I'm 30 years old and was surprised by my boyfriend when he took me for my very first trail ride for my birthday. I was terrified and had no idea what to expect. After all, I have never been NEAR a horse, let alone on one. When I explained my fear to the blonde woman who I met first, she assured me that she'd give me something gentle and kind. She was very patient with me. She made sure the trailguide knew my concerns as well. I have to say that by 5 minutes into the ride, I felt myself relax. They gave me an incredibly calm horse and the traiguide made certain that every one of my questions and concerns were answered with a very friendly smile. The trails are very scenic and I find myself wanting to go back very soon. I LOVE this place and I love the horses my boyfriend and I rode. I felt a little silly when I was so scared and saw so many children having a great time on horseback. I'd recommend this place to ANYONE for an amazing outdoor experience.

I have taken about a dozen riding lessons here, and plan to take many more. The instructor teaches you the proper way to brush and saddle your horse, as well as ride. So far this has been a great experience. I am definitely going to

My friends and I felt like we were in an old west movie when we went on the Echo Lake night ride! It was so much fun to hang out, roast marshmallows over an open fire and we were even line dancing. The food was really good too! I could always go for some awesome BBQ. It's really a bargain - $60 for the whole evening (that includes the horse back ride, too). The ride was an hour and a half and that was such a blast. We had a really fun evening; there is nothing like it anywhere. I would highly recommend it to all!!

My girl scout troop went to Echo Lake for badge work and trail riding. Some of us moms decided to ride along also. The instructors and guides were very good with the girls and they made sure it was informative, safe and fun for all. These gals are especially good with nervous or frightened children (we had one). I would recommend all girls scouts go there.

Thank you Echo Lake Stables!! My husband, two teenage sons, and myself attended last nights ride and bon-fire. We weren't sure what to expect, but every expectation was exceeded!! You can't beat it. For $60.00 you get one and a half

I've been riding horses since I'm a kid. The barn I used to ride at closed up years ago. I've been looking for another barn I could call home for years. I definitely found it here. The owners were great. The one in the cowboy hat had me

I went riding with my husband and children. We had a great time. The trails were beautiful, the guides were so nice and the horses were great. The kids keep asking to go back on a daily basis. We will definitely be comming back soon.

Pros: none.

Overused horses look tired and miserable, the guides seem more interested in hanging out with each other than the trail ride, and often get annoyed by large groups. The barn is nice looking enough, but it's a place I wouldn't recommend. Try Legends in Vernon instead.

Went to a third birthday party where horses were rented for the afternoon. My friend felt the prices were reasonable and the people who worked with the horses and kids were good.

We took our Girl Scout troop to Echo Lake Stables for a trail ride. The horse trail itself was pretty fun, but the guides were not very nice. However, the girls had a very fun time just because they were riding horses. I wouldn't return. If you want to go horseback riding, try the Roberto Training Center at Spring Brook Acres on Union Avenue in Bloomingdale.
