Hi! I just wanted to let you know I went on the 4 hour trail ride this morning and despite the gloomy weather, I had a great time! My guide was Lindsey and Val came along to learn the trail - I was the only customer on the ride so I had them all to myself. Both girls are wonderful, very friendly and helpful. I plan on bringing my family up there in the next few weeks (as our schedules allow) for the two hour ride - I can't wait to see the mountains that were shrouded by fog today...it must be magnificent."

Good Morning!
My husband and I just came back from a fantastic weekend with Mexico and Thumper! I wanted to make sure and send a big THANK YOU for the great horses! They were very well-tempered, got along and definitely contributed to a very relaxing, enjoyable experience. I have - however - re-named Thumper..... His new name is "Weed - Wacker". I tell you - in minutes he could chow down on 40 acres of grass and flowers and still want more!!! Ken Jett won't have to mow Ripple Creek for the rest of the Season!! Very Sweet Horse!! We might see you again this Fall! If not, we will definitely be back next year! Take Care and have a great rest of your Summer! Kind Regards."
