Some of the nicest people you can find
Sep 2021
We spent the weekend at Eagle Ridge in Galena for a short getaway and found the Shenandoah riding center via the Eagle Ridge website. Our daughter is 5 and loves horses but had never been on one. We booked a 15 minute lead line and it was fantastic. When we arrived, two employees were tending to some animals right outside the door and were super friendly and asked us to come say hi to "Bert" and "Ernie." Everyone was so nice and helpful. The ride was amazing for our daughter and as soon as she was done she asked "can I go again?" Shenandoah Riding Center is a gem and we can't wait to come back and hopefully go on a trail ride!

Relaxing and a great time
Sep 2021 • Family
We went for the sunset ride and had such a great time. It was very relaxing and all the horses seemed so happy. I wish it was a longer ride but only because we really enjoyed it. All the employees were really friendly and really understood their animals and their behaviors. Definitely would go back!

1 hour ride in 40 minutes
Sep 2021 • Friends
The horses were great. The employees were very nice. But we paid $75.00 each for a private one hour ride. We got on our horses one at a time at 9:00 a.m. As we walked by the various outdoor paddocks we stopped as our guide told us about the horses inside. The description of a private ride was being able to trot and possibly gallop. We did neither. We were all off our horses, one at a time, and walking away at 9:40 a.m. very disappointing experience. We recommend finding something else to do.

Amazing

Shenandoah Riding Center was fantastic! They were great with us, we are not that experienced and treated us with kindness. The horses were great and the guide so was kind and sweet. We learned a lot about the horses and the local area! Couldn't ask for a better trip.

The staff is amazing and very helpful. They make you feel comfortable around the horses and with the horses, wether it’s your first time riding or if you are an experienced rider. The horses know the trail very well, which makes you feel more comfortable and more relaxed during the ride. The staff comes with during the ride to help navigate you and help you if in case you have any issues with your saddle or figuring out how to lead your horse. I highly recommend Shenandoah Riding center to a beginner rider or a experienced rider.

Gotta Go to Shenandoah
Aug 2021 • Family
The Shenandoah Riding Stables are one of the greatest horseback riding experiences we’ve had! The Galena countryside, rolling hills and scenic vistas are amazing and the staff sets the scene for a unique trail riding experience. The horses, grounds and stables are maintained with love. You gotta go!

Best experience

I went on the sunset ride and it was a wonderful experience. The staff were very knowledgeable and passionate about their horses. Me and my mom were first time riders and we were quickly made comfortable. The horses were magical, and very well trained. At the end we were given a drink of choice and since we were the last group we got to see them release all the horses to pasture and be free. Loved it. Wish I lived near by or I would go all the time! Worth every penny! Tip your guides, they deserve it :)
