What people are saying about Gettysburg

First of all, if you’re planning on doing this, you MUST understand that horses- as beautiful and intelligent as they are- are still animals that want to do their own thing. That being said, it was wonderful. Michael was very knowledgeable about the Battle and pointing out the monuments. They showed extensive patience with our questions on handling the horses (and fixing my foot every time it fell out of the stirrup). I’m so glad we had our first experience riding horses with this small, intimate group. It definitely took the pressure off of us.

We were first time riders. The guide team was amazing at helping us learn how to control the horses and we were riding in just a few minutes! Tour guides were very knowledgable of both the history and the horses. They also got a ton of fantastic pictures for us. I highly recommend!

This is THE way to see the battlefield. Being on horseback allows you to understand exactly what the Union and Confederate soldiers could actually see from their positions. This perspective is not available from the tarmac.

It’s was a great experience! The guides were so knowledgeable and friendly. It felt like you were riding horses with long time friends! Their hospitality was unbeatable!

Very helpful staff. Great way to see the battlefield for riders of any skill level.
