Awesome riding experience for a beginner like me. Our leader was cracking hilarious jokes and stories along the way. The trail through the lakeside forest was very scenic, and had some spectacular views of Lake Tahoe. There was easy parking (in a crowded area of Tahoe) and clean bathrooms. I checked out three horseback riding stables in Tahoe area, and this was my favorite. The dinner ride looks like a lot of fun, and heard the grub is delicious. We did a one hour ride at noon.
