Trail Rides

About the Rides

Where are they?

Stretching over 45 acres, our scenic riding trails wind through quiet woodlands, a shallow creek, and open fields and hills. Every ride is unique, following a slightly different route to provide variety and spontaneity for horses and riders. Tired of walking-only rides? We can pick up the pace occasionally based on the experience and comfort of the riders. All trail rides are guided.

Who can come?
All ages and ranges of experience are welcome. We will match you with a well-trained horse who knows the trails and responds to your commands. Not comfortable on horseback? No problem—beginners are provided with a few minutes of instruction in a training ring before we start on the trail. We emphasize a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable experience for horse and rider.

What do I wear?

There’s no specific dress requirement, but here are a few suggestions:

  • Dress comfortably.
  • Wear long pants or jeans.
  • Wear riding boots or closed-toed shoes. Sneakers are fine.
  • Safety helmets are not provided or required but are encouraged.
