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.

Truman was terrific! Our group was made up of an 18 year old English school educated young man who has studied the American Civil War on his own, a 32 year old man with some knowledge about the War and a 71 year old widow of a Civil War buff. Truman was relatable to us all. Intelligent, knowledgeable, affable and generous with his time and knowledge. All three of us were very pleased and satisfied. We highly recommend his services!!

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!

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!

Great guide, Informative, friendly, made tour awesome.
