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!

Oh my gosh. This was WONDERFUL. I was very nervous to ride a horse as it’s been probably 20 years since I have done that but the guides for the horses were extremely helpful and I was not nervous due to their reassurance and assistance. The tour guide was legit AMAZING, even my 15 year old son agreed. He was SO knowledgeable and boy can he tell a story. I am SO glad I did this and would definitely do again!

I didn't realize when signing up for this tour but we traveled on the road that was taken by the soldiers back in time. Being on horseback, going through the woods, listening to our very informed guide, it was easy to recreate the events in your mind. Guides were very professional taking care to keep everyone safe while making the trip enjoyable and memorable. Highly recommend this!

Such a unique, beautiful experience!!! Andie was incredibly knowledgeable, and I walked away knowing more than I knew. The horse guides were super sweet and a joy to talk to. I can’t wait to bring my family and friends back for another ride!!

Very nice people and very willing to help if you need would highly recommend
