Testimonials

  • Mariah Guillen

    My husband and I had such an amazing time. The views were very beautiful and so were the horses. Tim and Vanessa were so welcoming and great, we will be returning!
  • Jet Chang

    We had a GREAT Time. My little one missed Vanessa, Timmy and the their grandson more than the horses. That’s saying a lot because she absolutely loved Star. We will be back. They make you feel like family. I loved everything about this experience even stubborn April. Can’t wait to go back.
  • Chris Covlin

    Wonderful trail ride with amazing people. We will most definitely be back to do this again! Very informative and helpful. The horses had such great personalities and were very loving. Highly recommend taking the time to go out and enjoy!
  • Jennifer Blume

    Highly recommend Bit & Bridle! We took our 3-yr old for the hour lesson and she LOVED it! Star is the sweetest horse and Vanessa made it such a memorable experience. Can not recommend enough! Thank you for the great time!
  • ay Bandeau

    Great experience!! We will definitely be back with the rest of the family!!
  • Miranda Villarreal

    Today was just amazing. The entire experience from beginning to end was perfect. The owners were extremely knowledgeable, patient and very experienced. My daughters went from knowing nothing to galloping by the end of our time. The smiles and sheer joy has lead them to begging to go back....which we will. I can not recommend enough.
  • Kelli Palmer

    What an absolutely memorable family experience. Thank you for such a fun evening. We can’t wait to come back!!
  • Marcy Reynolds McKibbin

    We had an amazing lesson today for my 6 and 8 yr old horse crazy girls! They were able to accommodate us very last minute after another place canceled on us. They saved the day. We were treated like family and we had a wonderful time. Definitely 5 stars
  • Lisa Steinbrenner Ashley

    We celebrated my daughters 12th birthday with a trail ride. It was an incredible experience from start to finish! Such patience from Vanessa and Tim, and such great horses! Super helpful, understanding, responsive, and professional. Thanks again! Can’t wait till our next visit!
  • Olivia Escamilla

    Amazing experience! Friendly, patient, and great company to ride with! I was nervous and they really made me feel so comfortable and calm. We most definitely enjoyed our ride and will continue to visit when in the area!

“Farm work doesn’t make you stronger.”
It doesn’t make you anything.
It reveals you.
There’s gym strong and then there’s farm strong.
They are not mutually exclusive.

The toughest women you’ll ever meet spend their days on a farm.

There are more uses for twine than you can possibly imagine.

“Well that certainly didn’t go as planned,” is one thing you’ll say quite a bit.

Control is a mere illusion… The thought that you have any, at any given time, is utterly false.

Sometimes sleep is a luxury…So are lunch and dinner. And brushing your hair.
Trust me, you’ll find muscles that you never knew existed on the human skeleton to prevent this from happening.

When one of the animals is ill, you’ll go to heroic lengths to minimize their discomfort.

Their needs come first.

In summer heat and coldest winter days. Clean water, clean bed, and plenty of feed. Before you have your first meal, they all eat.

When you lose one of them, even though you know that day is inevitable, you still feel sadness, angst and emotional pain from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. And it’s a heaviness that lingers even though you must regroup and press on.

You’ll cry a lot. But you’ll never live more fully.

You’ll remain present no matter what because you must. There is no other option.
You’ll ask for so many miracles and hold out hope until the very last.

You’ll find yourself saying things like, “we have maybe twenty minutes of daylight left to git ‘er done” whilst gazing up at a nonspecific place in the sky.

You’ll become weirdly obsessive about the weather.

You’ll go out in public wearing filthy clothes and smelling of dirt, sweat and poop.

People will look at you sideways and crinkle their noses but you won’t care.

Your entire day can derail within ten seconds of the rising sun.

You can wash your coveralls. They won’t look any cleaner, but they will smell much nicer.

Farm work is difficult in its simplicity.

You’ll always notice just how beautiful sunrises and sunsets really are.

Should you ever have the opportunity to work on a farm, take the chance!

You will never do anything more satisfying in your entire life.”

Destin and I went and rode some horse obviously while in Fredericksburg at a place called Bit and Bridle horse stables. The experience was unforgettable, but even more so than the horse riding was the conversation. Everyone knows that Destin and I married early (6 months) and Lord be willing in April we’ll celebrate our 6 year anniversary. Tim and Vanessa married only after 3 months and will be celebrating 37 years of marriage! How awesome is that?! But I say that to say this. You can date a while and decide I like everything this person has to offer and think about marriage. OR, Maybe jump into marriage and find things along the journey of your new life that you don’t like or whatever the shortcoming may be (on both sides) and work through them together, hand in hand. And become a better person, or couple because of it. I hope the memories of horse back riding will never fade, but I know two things are certain, the talks with Tim and Vanessa will stay with me, and I know we will definitely be back to bit and bridle stables.. Yea we could go somewhere else to ride horses but you’re not going to find conversation like that anywhere.. We feel so Blessed to have met Tim and Vanessa. And nothing being planned yet but it’s definitely in the conversations of our next trip out west. See MoreSee Less
