    Wow! What a great place for a child to spend a summer. A safe environment for them to learn not only the pleasure of riding a horse but what all it entails on their care. My two girls spent two summers here and made so many memories that they will take with them for a lifetime. Staff was courteous, knowledgeable and most importantly have respect for their animals. Will surely send my children back if the opportunity arises.

      Hidden Pines Farm is a great place. I have boarded my horse here for years. The owner is the nicest, outgoing, caring, loving person in the world. She will go out of her way to help others and take care of your horse. I have never had a problem. As for the hay, they have amazing hay. They just switched their hay people and i couldn’t love it more! My horse is very well taken care of at Hidden Pines. To the person above who is complaining about bonfires, they DO NOT have big fires, AT ALL!!! Defiantly not big enough to reach the loft. THE DOORS ARE ALWAYS CLOSED. I know that because I close them. They would never have flames that high for that reason. I have seen numerous firefighters every time there is a fire. Actually one of my good friends is a firefighter and he is there ever time we have a fire. Hidden pines farm wouldn’t do anything to hurt the animals or the barn. All horses that come onto the property need to have proof of vaccinations and coggins. So no horse has any parasites/ diseases. They do switch some of the horses around but about twice a week they go and pick out the paddocks. I personally wouldn’t want my horse in the same place every day. She would get bored. Hidden Pines is very clean. They have always kept the water clean and filled to the top. Outside boarders are welcome, and if you board outside you are responsible for cleaning your shed. I keep my horse in the barn and they clean the stalls and all the details and do a great job. My horse always has a clean stall and good hay. Hidden Pines feeds there horses very well. For the comment above I don’t know who you are but there was a very strong reason why they buried their horse there. That horse belonged to the owner and the horse has been on the property for many, many years and that was her favorite place to graze and be turned out in. there is nothing wrong with doing that. And you shouldn’t have a problem with it. I LOVE HIDDEN PINES FARM!! They are really great people and as I said I have never had a problem with my horse here. I highly recommend this farm to anyone who likes to have a quiet place to keep there horse. There is never drama, actually the only barn that barley has drama!

        I went to Gold Rush Farmswith my fiance to take a lesson and trail ride. During my lesson the instructor was not only extremely knowledgable, but also made me feel at ease seeing as I don't have much riding experience. And the trail ride was just the icing on the cake!! It was so beautiful and Roy, the horse I was riding, was just so sweet. Not to mention the gorgeous Spring views! My fiance ans I had such a wonderful time. I was also pleased to learn that all the trail rides are private, meaning besides the guide, you don't go out with a group of people that ypu don't know. It was also awesome how they had their own private trails on property. We will definitely be visiting Gold Rush Farms on a regular basis!
