Absolute horse beginner seeks carefully supervised riding experience for him & his little brother, somewhere in the Seattle area.

My 8 year old little brother has asked me to take him horseback riding and I'd like to indulge him. But I know nothing about horses except that they are very big whinnying herbivores that you nail shoes onto. I don't know where to start at all.
So: what kind of riding can a pair like us get up to? Ideally I'd like to get out for 2-3 hours on a weekend afternoon, see a little bit of scenery, and remain safe and supervised at all times.
Is this realistic? If so, can anyone recommend an establishment in the Seattle area that can do something like this?
