Trail Riding

Join us for a beautiful day in the saddle!

Hand-led Pony Ride - $30/pony
This is the perfect option for the little ones. This will be the best half hour of their day as they get to ride a horse or pony through our obstacle course. This is a 30 minute ride and may be shared between riders 6 and under.

NOTE: Our Trail Ride packages are changing! Please call (386) 848-7953 for current rates and packages.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

Saddle-Up Stroll - $45/rider
    This ride is for those who have never ridden or would like a refresher before hitting the wide open wilderness! You will get to help groom and saddle your horse and then it's off to the riding ring for a short introductory or refresher riding lesson. After that, we will head out to take a stroll around the block through the neighborhood.

    Since this ride is geared for beginners, please expect to walk only. Small children are "ponied" behind the leader but will have to know how to "whoa!" their horse and steer to keep a safe distance.

        Please allow 1 to 1 1/2 hours for this option.
        
Actual riding time is 30-40 minutes.
        Ages 4+

    This ride is for those who want to keep their butt in the saddle just a little while longer. You will help groom and saddle your horse, just like our Saddle Up stroll, but after a quick refresher, we will take you out on the trails to explore for a good while.

          Please allow 2 to 3 hours for this ride.
          Actual riding time is 60 minutes.

Day Long Trail Rides

        All day affair.
        Actual riding time is approximately 4-5 hours.
