Wonderful Horseback Riding Experiences

Awesome business

I went for their 1 hour ride. The horses were well trained and very gentle. The guides were excellent. I lost my hat during the ride. Staff recovered it on the next ride and the owner sent it back to me. I highly recommend Uncle Buck's. I plan on returning for their 2 hour ride.

Our Tradition

We love visiting Uncle Buck's. Despite it's remote location, we always make it a point to take a ride here. No matter what your ability, they will be able to accommodate you. The path is great through the state forest and horses are very cooperative. We've never been disappointed here.

Very nice

Very nice. Love going to Uncle Bucks for almost 20 years. Took my first ride there, my daughters first there, and now my granddaughter's first ride. Trails are great for beginners, intermediate, and advanced riders. Guides are extremely knowledgeable about the horses and provide a safe experience.

A great way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

My Girlfriend and I booked the Moonville Trail Ride last weekend and had a really enjoyable time. We had never rode horses before, but the staff did a great job of teaching us the basics and providing us with well tempered and experienced horses. Our guide, Meghan, was very knowledgeable and friendly.

The ride was amazing, the horse was amazing, the trail was amazing. I'll definitely be back more times in the near future. Definitely recommend this place for beginners.
