This is our walk and trot trail. This is the best option for most of our customers. It is 1st and 2nd gear on the back of a horse. Beginner and intermediate riders should stick to this walk/trot trail until they are fully comfortable. Kids giggle and laugh while the parents do their best to forget the stress of life and enjoy the peace of the woods. Non parents will still enjoy the scenery and the great body workout that horseback riding brings.
All doubles will be included on this trail and we usually try to put you in line towards the end. Most lap kids have a great time but on occasion an adult and kid are a bit too large to ride together and that can cause a little more rubbing than a child cares for.
Folks who are 200+ lbs. should stick to this trail, instead of the running trail. Being on a running horse and trying to keep your center of gravity can be challenging at the 200+ range. The trotting ride isn’t as fast and you don’t bounce as high. Please take our word for it and follow these suggestions.
Bring the whole family! We have no age limit. Children small enough to ride with a parent can do so, but we suggest anyone over 6 yrs old ride their own gentle horse.
Rides mount at approximately 11:00, 1:00, 3:00 and 5:00. Once your horse crosses the creek, your hour ride starts. Please arrive 20 minutes early.
For 1.5 or 2 hour rides, please give us a call to discuss availability.
Please Note: As of 8/1/15 all riders 17 years old and younger who ride by themselves must wear a helmet. You can bring a bike helmet from home or use one of our helmets.
Take your riding to the next level!
If you have been on the typical slow trail rides up to this point and feel very comfortable on a trotting horse, go to the next level and try the running ride.
