Client Reviews

We know this place by hiking the trail next to it! So we kind of observe for a while that we finally decided to give it try! And we all don’t have experience riding with horses. So the whole entire time with horse was really that you lead the horse BY YOUSELF! Which is really amazing part. They are very well trained already , very calm, and they walk very slow. If you lead well with them that you can control well with your command. My horse name is Latte. He is very personality and sensitive. In the beginning I couldn’t lead him to walk on the right track. But,Our guild Michael is very professional and patient to explain a lot of our questions . We learn from him a lot! So in the end , I got very good bonding with Latte! The trail was very peaceful in the winter and with no wind!(which is the least busy time to come) Just need to dress warm(snow outfits is necessary). We love the whole experience and like the idea that to know more about horses !! No regret!!! Love to come back for sure!

Fantastic ride! The horses were lovely. Pathways is really well organized. Nice, long ride in a beautiful setting. Michael, out guide was fun and friendly. Will definitely go back.
My sister and I went on a trail ride in the fall and it was the most amazing experience! It was our first time riding and we were able to catch on very quickly as our trail guide Amber was very friendly and knowledgeable. We loved getting to learn more about the horses. My horse Mercedes was the best! Very sweet and reliable. The trail itself was also stunning! The autumn leaves make it such a magical experience but it’s wonderful that they’re open all year. We will definitely be back!

My family and I had a private horseback riding ride on Christmas with Cass. We were visiting Canada for Christmas break and love horseback riding and horses so we wanted to give this place a try. Pathways on Pleasure Valley was an amazing place, and was even more amazing with our guide. She was incredible; so knowledgeable, so friendly, and made great conversation throughout the trail. She worked very well with the children and adults in this group, and I’m so happy that she was the one who worked with my family. We all loved learning more about our horses (and hope Latte, Dotty (and Bonus), and Yukon are doing great; tell them we miss them!). Besides Cass, the trail was beautiful as well. It was great to be in nature for an hour, just us with the horses. We also loved to see the other animals around too, like the chickens and especially Spooky the cat and the cute dogs too. If we visited Canada again we would definitely come back here. I wish we lived closer! Thank you for giving my family and me a great time.

Had a great experience with a trail ride on a lovely winter after. My girlfriend is an experienced rider but I am new and Veronica was great. She led us on a great ride and was super fun to talk with and answered many horse and mule related questions. Definitely coming back!

If you have never been on a horse this is the perfect opportunity! The guides are so friendly and they take you on a trail inside the woods and the horses are well trained.

Went with my daughter and her friend…was a fantastic experience for all 3 of us, and we’re planning to go again! The guides are excellent, the horses well cared for and trained, and the grounds are beautiful. It was the first time riding for both girls and they had a great experience, thank you!

My fiancé did our engagement here and it was just purely magical!!! Chloe was the one who took us on our private riding tour. The trail alone was absolutely beautiful. And the horses were amazing too 😍 Chloe was super fun the whole ride, chatting, mentioning fun things about the farm while riding, took lots of great photos and then brought us to our special location! I had no idea, nor did I think anything was happening so kudos to her for keeping me distracted haha!
