Our Customer Reviews

I have been on a lot of trail rides through my life and Millbrook’s trail ride was by far the best! Typically you can expect wide open trails and you casually walk along. This was awesome! I brought my 9 and 12 year old along and they were so excited. As soon as they jumped off they asked to come back next weekend! You ride through corn fields, cow pastures, streams, dense forest preserves, you name it. Lily was our guide and kids loved her, she made sure they were always ok was so easy going. Also, a lot of trail was fairly shaded so not too bad in the hot weather. Definitely wear pants, you are riding horses after all. We will definitely be back!
