Welcome! We are Ed and Jenny Specht along with our children Jagger, Elliana, and Sydni. We have been riding quads, dirt bikes, ATVs…anything with wheels since we were kids. My husband Ed is an avid fisherman and our family shares a love of being outside together. Our son Jagger served in the United States Navy. I am a homeschool Mom, 4H club leader and enjoy helping my daughters pursue their love of animals and the outdoors.
It all started when when Ed, a Michigan native, came down to Arkansas for work about a year ago. He took our family on an ATV trail ride and the kids asked to go again and again. We were hooked and fell in love with the beauty of Fairfield Bay. He met a wonderful family, Larry and Wendy Harmon, that took him in and treated him like family when we were not there….and they just happen to be ATV trail riding guides! After a year of planning, we finally decided to pursue our dream and open ATV Excursions together.
Our goal is to enjoy this life everyday with you as our guest! We hope you love the experience as much as we do. Our family looks forward to creating special memories for you and your family! We have an ATV trail riding experience for beginners to advanced, so whether it is your first time riding ATV s or you have been several times before, we hope you choose us to take you for a ride!

They are both eager and enthusiastic about providing excellent service and committed to guests and their community. Their aim is to make every ride exciting and memorable, in hopes to make new friends and bring people back to the Bay.
