Trail Riding and MORE!
Horseback Adventures
   Trail Riding  for individuals, couples, or small family groups on well trained gentle horses.     
   Private  Horse Tours...just you and your family or friends and small groups. Never a "every ride the same, head to tail ride". 
MEADOW RIDE $50/person

The Meadow is a good starting point if you have never ridden or just want to stroll through the meadows and wood margins. These rides are appropriate for children or adults. Mostly ridden at a walk. Around 1 hour of riding with extensive instruction if needed or requested.



PARTNERING WITH YOUR HORSE LESSON $25/30min

One-on-one instruction learning to understand how to blend your personality and goals with your horse's unique "view". Gain insights into horse behavior and  expand your ability to be a safe and effective rider. This can be added to any ride and will expand your riding ability and confidence. 



FOUR SEASONS TRAIL RIDE $60/person

Enjoyable any time of the year. This trail ride is a scenic cruise through the rolling meadows and gentle wooded hillsides. No steep drops or difficult hill climbs. Perfect for all ages and experience levels, and those looking to slow down, relax, and enjoy some horse time. Approx. 1 hour of riding time, plus the mini lesson.



HILLTOPS AND HOLLERS $70/person

Great first time ride. This ride is adaptable and variable, depending on your personal choice of meadows, hilltops, or wooded hillsides.  We start out with a lesson of introduction with your horse and then go ride SUM HILLS and HOLLERS!   This ride is suitable for beginners or the experienced and lasts about 1-1/2 hours, including the mini lesson. The pace and steepness of the hillsides is up to your preference.

(What is a  Holler? A small rising valley between 2 hills, often containing a creek.)



WOODS AND MORE WOODS $85/person

This ride builds your confidence and bond with your horse as you ride. We start out in wooded hillsides, wind up and down woods of breathtaking beauty, and criss cross the high meadows to find more! We've added many new sections of woods and beautiful trails. Experience steeper hillsides and challenging trails, with less meadow time for more forest time and adventure. This ride will last a minimum 2 hrs. and will give you more time among the trees and hidden vistas. Not suitable for young children or cautious beginners, but as with all of our rides, can be adapted as we go, for your special horse time.



CAVES AND HIDDEN PLACES $99/person

This ride goes into the wooded hillsides and searches for rocks, caves, and waterfalls. We will ride into seldom seen forests and explore nature's secret places. This is not a beginners ride due to the extreme hillsides and creek crossings, and may not be available after heavy rains. This ride lasts about 1-1/2 hours, and is a beautiful winters day outing, too. 



CAVES AND SECRET PLACES II $125/person

This is an alternate Caves and Secret Places Ride that goes into steeper hillsides and covers more areas. You will experience the hidden world of breathtaking ravines and seldom seen vistas. This is a longer ride, lasting  a minimum of 2 hrs. This is a challenging ride and not suitable for beginners.



PONY RIDES/LESSONS FOR CHILDREN $30/30 min

Small children can have their own lesson and unique "horse time". Often children enjoy grooming the pony and learning how to lead, as well as ride
