This place is okay for really little children, but otherwise it is a waste of time and money. Half of the time the 'little horses' aren't even in areas where they can be viewed, and there is one ride which has about four ponies labouring all day going around in circles with children on their backs. The show is okay, but it isn't anything you haven't seen before from dinner theaters involving horses.
I've been to this place 3 times & the first 2 visits were ok. But the last time, I vowed never to return.
The animals seem neglected. On a hot day in late May, some of the animals didn't appear to have any water & many fo the enclosures don't offer shade for the animals.
Some of the animal pens really needed to be cleaned (poop everywhere). I truly felt sorry for these animals. Don't give this place your money!
If you want to see animals & support a good cause, visit the Fairfield Zoo about 15 miles away from gettysburg. They rescue animals & care for them very well.
We liked everything! We extended our stay to 3 nights and it wasn't enough! The animals were all very tame and lovable. The humans were too. We will be back, and we hope to do it very soon. (We went to see the battle reinactment, but the land of little horses is what we loved about the trip.)
I liked how the they don't just have horses, they have camels, alpacas,and big horses. I love this place! I think it's fun and not a waste of time. I would recommend it.
I think that they could host a carnival and still not complain. I like how the staff really cares for the horses. I just love the show and can't wait to go back in the spring.

We've been to the Land of Little Horses many times over the years that we've been raising our children. We always enjoy ourselves there and enjoy seeing the animals. It's a clean place and the animals are well taken care of. There is ample staff to care for the animals. It's not a huge place which makes if perfect for families with small children. There's a nice gift shop and the food at the snack bar is good and a good value. We look forward to going again when it opens in the Spring.
We had some time to kill in Gettysburg this weekend so we took our 2 year old daughter. She squealed with joy the moment she saw the little horses and laughed and giggled all whole day long. She loved giving them hugs and kisses and was fascinated by the show in the arena.
The place wasn't too crowded and every child there looked to have a wonderful time. I only wished we had more time to spend. We were there for three hours and there was so much we didn't get a chance to see.
I especially appreciated how the staff encouraged adopting strays from the SPCA. It was sweet that the dogs in the show were rescued. All the animals seemed to be well taken care of, which made a big difference.
We ate lunch at the snack bar and it wasn't too bad. There was a birthday party and the kids working the counter were having a great time laughing and joking with each other. It made for a very pleasant atmosphere.
Thanks to the entire staff for such for an awesome day!
I took my three kids ages, 11 mo., 3 1/2 and 6 1/2 plus an 11 year old friend to the Land of Little Horses. I've been there a few times before over the years. I will agree that everything was clean, the food wasn't too expensive (even though it did take a very long time) and it was a good place to enjoy a nice day. However, it was pricey to get in and then everything was extra, including food for animals, pony rides, wagon rides and gem mining. $50 just for one adult and 3 kids to get in seems like a lot, especially for what is offered. The show also didn't seem as good as I remembered it being in previous years. I understand that caring for animals is expensive, but the Maryland Zoo or Lake Tobias are much better values for what you get. If the price had included the animal food or one of the "extras" then it would have been a better value.
