Chris & Fancy (the pony) were FANTASTIC! We had a pony party for our twin daughters for their fifth birthday. Chris also did a hayride! He was GREAT with the children, Chris took individual time with all the children as they rode the pony! Fancy (the pony) was so calm and very good with all the children as well.
I would HIGHLY recommend Chris to do a party to anyone! Everyone at the party complimented on how great Chris and Fancy were! Also the prices were very reasonable. We will defiantly use him again!
The only bad thing was, no one wanted Fancy to leave!
Thank you SO much Chris and Fancy for making our daughters fifth birthday PERFECT and UNFORGETTABLE!
I am assuming that most people that go here to ride know very little to nothing about horses. I have had horses for 20 years and went with my non-horsie sister. At least 3 of the horses I saw were so skinny I was surprised they were still standing! I gave them the benefit of the doubt because one was old, and I thought maybe they were rehabbing the other 2...but as I looked around there were some others not nearly as skinny but could have used 100 pounds or so. Then my rehab theory went out the door....they put a saddle on one of the horses that I couldn't believe was still standing! I was horrified! The horse I was going to ride could have used at least 75-100 pounds. So...those of you that think these horses are calm and docile it is because they are not fed! I will have to say the 2 that were the most shocking was the mule/draft cross and what appeared to be an arabian or part arabian (bay in color). The only time I have ever seen horses that skinny were on Animal Planet and they were being rescued. On a positive note, I thought the barn and the grounds were well kept and about 1/2 of the horses looked to be healthy enough to be ridden and of a good weight. The only horse I saw that was going to be ridden in our group of healthy weight was an appy, the rest were SKINNY. I really hope these horses get some help or at least some food. It is sad they are making a profit from these animals and they can't even feed them in return. I really feel for them and you can bet when i got home I hugged my fat, healthy, and happy horses!
We were a little concerned about the place at first. The barn looks in need of upkeep, and the horses need a good grooming. But once we spoke with Chris and got in the saddle our worries were laid to rest. We had a wonderful ride, the woods were peaceful, and the horses were ready and willing to do anything we asked of them. He raises and trains several of his horses there, and can cater to almost any level of riding ability. I had a great ride and will be sure to go again.

I don't get to ride very often, but I will now be planning trips to be close to Desperado. What an awesome ride!! Chris is helpful and takes you at the pace you want to go. If you're having trouble, he helps out. I went in July, so didn't get to go on the beach, but the trails were amazing.
