What people are saying about Pennsylvania

The staff of Confederate Trails Horseback Ride was terrific -especially Kate and Rachel. They were very upbeat and personable as well as very thorough in reviewing safety guidelines. Licensed battlefield guide Tim Bassit (I hope I spelled his last name correctly) was excellent. He gave a cohesive, coherent, interesting running history lesson over the 2-hour ride. Last but not least, my horse "Grace" was awesome. It is very obvious the horses are well cared for. I highly recommend this experience!
