Looking for a “trail ride” on unresponsive horses? That’s not quite what we do! While we have AMAZING trails with beautiful scenery in which we frequently see great blue herons, white cranes, deer and song birds, the experience is a lesson. It’s perfect for seasoned riders or total beginners who want to know what riding a horse is really like. The industry standard of trail riding does not give public riders a real equestrian experience. Trail horses poke along on a trail that’s all they know and it actually requires more skill to get the horse OFF the trail than to stay on it. Our horses are responsive, but understanding of beginner over-cuing, under-cuing and mis-cuing. Our guides will provide patient instruction to individuals with different learning styles by offering a variety of explanations to make sure that horseback riders feel confident that they have the right tools to handle the horses.
