Exceeded Expectations !!
by Ron Bertram
RHR was recomended by a friend at work.. Checked out the website and booked our trip. My 2 yr old had the time of her life, our late Feb trip was packed full of activities. We will be back, next time in the summer so she can also enjoy ... more all the outdoor water slides and games. The staff was incredible, 2 yrs and 1 month and she skied for the first time... also went on the water slide 3,700 times !

group get together
by BPingree
My 8 year old son and I met up with an adoptive family group and had an incredibly wonderful time. The food was abundant and very good, the staff is excellent, the activities were plentiful and we enjoyed a wonderful trail ride. We were ... more very sad when it was time to leave!

luv it! luv it! luv It! luv it! luv ! luv it

enough said?

seriously though- found it when my younger 2 were 6 mo old and my oldest was 4- they will be 5 and 8 later this month. The staff- is amazing!! They remember ... more our family when we come back. - When we get there my kids have a hard time waiting for us to check in before they can go to the kids areas. ( many of the staff recognized them and remembered their names after the 2nd or 3rd visit).

My oldest and I have learned how to ride here. There is always something going on- no matter the weather. We have been here for several different holidays and they always have fun with it- to the extent that I've thought about making a list and trying to cross off holidays over the coming years.

In the time we have been going we have seen a lot of facility improvements and have met a lot of people of all ages that have been going since they were young. It is clearly more than just a job to many of the people who work here.

Top Notch Place
by William1976
Just got back from RHR and it was a great trip. Total value for dollar.
Staff was ever so friendly, and the place was very clean.
Our 3 and 5 year old were never at a loss of things to do as this place was exceptionally well run, ... more we'll organized and magnificent all around.

You can nit-pick at any resort regardless of how pricey or posh the place is, but I tell you, this place was overall the best time place we could have chosen. Not a single bad thing to report.

We will be back again next year in hopes they change nothing.

Missed on key activities
by mynewheart60
The two activities that motivated my returning to Rocking Horse after 15-25 years (water skiing and horseback riding) were a grave disappointment. On my third horseback ride, I was told I had to take whatever horse I was given. As an advanced ... more rider, I wound up with a horse that was more intermediate and thus I struggled with a lot of bouncing resulting in a pretty severe saddle burn. This prevented me from continuing and I had to give up about 5 more rides.

Regarding water skiing, I was not able to sign up daily and only got one chance on Wednesday at 2:00 PM, as my next opportunity would have been after the time we were scheduled to leave on Friday, 8/17. On my scheduled attempt, I was not able to get up after 3 tries. It seems the boat driver was going to full throttle instead of gradually taking it from slow to fast, allowing me to ease into a standing position. Having water-skied many times in the past (getting up on the first try), I left without having gone around the lake not even once. Needless to say, I was very frustrated as this was one of the activities I was looking forward to.

While I discussed both of these incidents with the Office and Night Managers, it was disappointing that this vacation yielded less than what I expected. Despite the aforesaid disappointments the shows were very entertaining, the food was abundant and of good quality and my daughter Kerri, her fiancé Brian and his two boys had a great time. This rating is based on my disappointment and may not necessarily reflect my daughter's evaluation.

Rocking Horse Rocks
by mrtarge
RHR rocks. Went last year. Going back this year. And because my daughters are 7 & 4, I can see going back for many years. So much better than Disney. No flying. No lines. No huge crowds. Kids can wander freely. Tons of activities for both ... more adults and children. AND, its improved since my last visit!! Indoor water park and bungee jumping? my goodness! wow. The food is excellent. The accomodations are suffice. And I can relax. Love this place.
