I had a wonderful experience at the Martin family ranch, and when I say experience that is exactly what it was. First we were given a delicious home cooked meal outside in the beautiful yard, they have options for allergy restrictions or vegetarian which I think is wonderful! Next we got to meet our horses and do everything to get them ready to ride. We got to brush them, clean their hooves, and really get up close and personal with them so they trusted you and both him and I would feel comfortable with each other. The stables where the horses were kept was so clean it was surprising, I mean you would never know a farm animal lived there looking at it. Everything was well taken care for and in great condition. We spent a great deal of time walking and riding the horses in the arena before we went out on the trail to make sure everyone was comfortable and ready. This is not your ordinary trail ride (I pictured a flat walk through the woods). This was an adventure and a heart pumping ride. It is not for the faint of heart! Overall I would return again and highly recommend David and Jessica to my friends and family, not only did I have fun but I learned a lot. They are extremely nice people and want to show everyone why horses are so great!

This was one of the best horseback riding experiences! My partner and I received and very personalized full day experience from David and Jess. They are a pleasure to speak with and they are knowledgable in their instruction. Both the ranch and trails were beautiful too. We learned a lot as beginners - we were able to trot within a few hours. Another perk was their homemade food was super yummy! They also take very good care of their beautiful horses and look out for our safety. Definitely will want to return again - thanks for hosting us!

Horse riding experience with David & Jess Martin was amazing, and one of my favorite experiences. They bring a personal touch and attentiveness that you won’t find anywhere else. The horses are gentle and friendly, and I was able to ride one in less than 45 mins of training (1st time rider). The food was homemade fresh and amazing - what a pleasant surprise! Would highly recommend the Martin Family Ranch to anyone who wants to try something new and get a real cowgirl/cowboy experience! I look forward to returning.

Martin Family Ranch is amazing! I brought my son as a birthday gift just him and I. Jess and David made him feel so special. He is still talking about our visit there saying how it was the best day and he can't wait to go back. I highly recommend! Amazing people, amazing food and beautiful sweet horses. It really was the best day. Thank you David, Jess and Kenny!

We had a wonderful family day with the Martin family. Their facility is top notch and they are wonderful hosts. It is clear they love what they do and take the time to really work with the riders. We purchased the full day package and am glad we did. We could take our time really learning the ins and outs of horsemanship. David, Jess and Ozzy were a pleasure to spend the day with!
