Reviews from Customers after Horseback Riding with us on the Gettysburg Battlefield.
Caroline and I wanted to tell you that we had an absolutely wonderful time today. By far, this was one of best things we've ever done on vacation. I loved Viggo. At first I thought I was too scared to go but then I saw that little boy crying.... In 10 minutes I was in love with my horse. Terry was wonderful too! Poor thing- I talked her ear off. What an amazing way to see the battlefields. Let me know where I should leave a review. I'm happy to do it!
The staff of Hickory Hollow Farms, our Certified Battlefield Guide, and the well behaved horses provided an excellent way to immerse our children in the historical events of the Gettysburg Battlefield. I need to mention that the weather was perfect too! The horseback riding tour along with our battlefield guide’s vast history knowledge made it the best of all of the tours we took over our four day vacation in Gettysburg. In fact, we have never seen our teens so attentive to a history lesson. Our 17 year old was so captivated by the guide’s portrayal of the events that he forgot he was afraid of horses! It is our opinion that this was the best way one can really envision the field of Pickett's Charge as the soldier's eye viewed it atop a horse as they made their way from Seminary Ridge to their meeting with destiny. We will highly recommend Hickory Hollow Farms Battlefield tour to our family, friends, and acquaintances!
We will return for another tour with you!!
Thank you, thank you, and THANK YOU!

A rave review with video from the lady with the alligator purse.
Kate and I wanted to say thank you very much for the tour on SundayOctober 23. It was an amazing time and one of the best things I have done in my life! Absolutely amazing! Great sights and great horses! What an excellent way to end a weekend!
We plan to come back and take the longer tour some time! Also, thank you for the good luck wishes on my path to the olympics.
It's much appreciated! Thanks!!
Pam, This is Heather Obadina.
My parents and I were on your horseback tour yesterday. I just wanted to say that I am so glad we booked with you! We really enjoyed your personality and felt you added much to the experience. We plan to make it to Gettysburgh every year or two, and we will certainly book with you.
Thanks for the nice time!
Pam, Just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful ride with you and guide Andi the last week in August. We had a great time and learned a lot of battlefield history… experiencing the battlefield from horseback is an amazing experience. I’ve ridden in many places and this was one ride that I will never forget. I could feel the history.
Thank you for a great experience.

I did not get to tell you how much I enjoyed the ride and tour today .When I was going to tell you were already busy helping the others dismount and taking care of them .You all were great. I was impressed how you built and kept the business growing.
In the future I hope to return with my son or my family and if we do will certainly do this again
I left some gratitude with Terry to be shared...and am sure she did for the 3 of you.
Best of luck in the future..and keep the professional and friendly atmosphere going and I am sure you will do fabulous.
Thanks for a nice afternoon..and nice timing on the rain! :).
My husband and I were on the Battlefield horseback riding tour on Sept. 15. We both loved it and found everyone to be very professional. I would recommend this to everyone. I tried to get on your review page but my computer wouldn’t let me so if you want to cut and paste this comment, please do so.
Thank you again
My husband and I rode with your company on Saturday October 13 and I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed it. My husband works in the IT department at a major hospital. He's understaffed, over worked and under a lot of stress. The first thing he said in the car after our two hour battlefield tour was how relaxed he was. He loved that Ragedy Ann did most of the work, and he was somewhere he didn't have to worry about his cell phone or pager going off. I was a history major at college and loved our licensed battle field guide. Was it Terry? I'm awful with names. My husband and I both noticed when you had Tasha get off her horse so that little boy by the canons could sit on her and get his picture taken. We were both really touched by that gesture. There are a lot of business owners who wouldn't have bothered doing that. It pretty much cemented our future business for you. We really hope to get back down sometime in the next year to do a longer ride. We're raving about you guys to any of our friends and family who will listen to us. I'll also be posting a 5 star review on Trip Advisor.
Thanks for the great experience and we hope to ride with you again soon.

Pam. I know you see lots of people every week, so if you don’t
remember me I understand. My husband and I just came to Gettysburg for
our first anniversary / honeymoon and
did a battlefield tour on the 9th of October. I wanted to
send an email and tell you what a great time I had. I was excited to go
on a horse before we got there, but once I saw the size of them, I got
scared. You completely put me at ease and
put me on Spirit…. What a wonderful darling she is. It was nice to
have something in common with you, our boys being nearly the same age
and all. Seeing the battlefield from the perspective we did on the
horseback tour really helped us view the battle
better when we did the auto tour. We definitely enjoyed our stay in
Gettysburg and will Definitely be back again. And when we do, you can
bet we will be getting ahold of you for another tour. Many people we
know are interested in traveling to Gettysburg
and I can only keep telling them to make sure they take your tour.
I wanted to say thank you to you and "Tasha". The ride was pleasant, beautiful and a great first experience with horses for our children. Tasha's daughter (only 4)! was a TRIP! She had no problem keeping her horse in line and that really helped our daughter. You were all so helpful, patient and your horses were simply fun. Before our ride was done, we were thinking of when we could return for another, longer ride.
We went to TripAdvisor and posted there as well.
Bless you guys!
Just a quick email to let you know how great the horseback
battlefield tour was yesterday. You and your whole team did a fantastic
job of matching the right people with the right horses (no easy task
since there were five in my little family unit), and I wanted to
especially thank you for taking the time to make my VERY NERVOUS 14 year
old daughter comfortable and at ease on her horse (Spirit). She had an
awesome time---we all did. Also, please let Terry know that her
expertise and detailed knowledge of the battle and events gave all of us
new insight into the way the battle evolved, as well as the personal
stories of the soldiers who fought there. I've been to the battlefield
on many occassions, but had never experienced it like this. We will
definitely be back, and will highly recommend you to our family and
friends. Thanks again.
