Horseback Trail Rides
We offer hourly Trail Rides for beginners and advanced riders, guided or unguided.
Riders do not have to follow a set route, you can choose your own way.
You may trot and gallop your horses if you wish.
If you book for two hours, you get a 3rd Hour FREE.
Our all-day rate is $80. We do not accept credit cards, debit cards, or checks: CASH ONLY.
Our Hours are:
We recommend, but do not require that you call before you come out…..
We will answer the phone outside of our business hours, so do feel free to call with questions, or reservations…..
Please Tip your Guide.
Guides are volunteers, NOT paid by us.
$20 per group is a fair tip for an hour’s worth of guide service….
For rides longer than an hour, tips average about $15/hour….
For more experienced riders, for just $10 more, gaited horses are available on request.
They are a smoother ride than any of our regular horses.
They are not beginner horses, so if you are a beginner and you want to rent one, we suggest you either take a lesson, or go out with a guide.
It costs $40 to rent a gaited horse for an hour.
Rent for two hours, and get an hour for free.
PLEASE CALL, AND WE CAN MAKE ARRANGEMENTS.
Full Board is $300/month.
Leases are done at $400/month on a month-to-month basis, renewable at our discretion.
$60 an hour. Customized lesson includes communication ground work and basic natural horsemanship using a combination of techniques from different riding disciplines.
Available weekdays only, by appointment.
Horse Training – Actually, there’s very little “Yee-hah!” to our training. It’s a question of persistence, consistence, confidence, tenacity and gentleness, combined with a knowledge of equine physiology and psychology.
Only a horse that knows its boundaries and feels secure is capable of achieving its potential.
A well-trained horse is a joy.
We strive continually to learn more about these wonderful animals, and we love to help others understand, appreciate and enjoy their equine companion(s). But, then again, a little bit of “Yee-hah!” is a LOT of fun!!!

If you fall in love with one of our horses, and want to provide a forever home, we do sell them.
We are sometimes willing take payments, on a case-by-case basis, just ask.
