Trail Ride returning
Trail Ride on one of our quiet horses. Our trail rides are guided by our friendly staff. Safety is our number one concern and all of our horses are tested by experienced riders before becoming a trail string mount. We have very pretty trails that are thru the woods and across a field. You will see a pretty pond and perhaps even some wildlife. Riders have even been lucky enough to see a newborn fawn in the spring. Riders are not permitted to ride double and no running of the horses will be allowed. We train them to walk safely with beginner and inexperienced riders. Children must be age 6 and up! Helmets are required on all riders under the age of 18. We are available for trail rides by appointment only and weather permitting. So call or email ahead of time and we would be happy to accommodate your group! Prices for 2017 are $30 per rider! We can only accomodate smaller groups at this time and only by a made well in advance appointment!! We are a full service training facility and trail ride time is very limited!!
