Trail Rides

 Certified Riding Helmets Required

We offer three different levels of trail riding.  Because of this, it is critical that you be honest with us about your riding experience.  Riding a horse is a specialized skill that takes time to learn.  If you book a trail with a pace faster than your skill level allows, the Guide will be forced to slow the pace to accommodate your skill level.  This is unfair to the other riders in your group who have booked a ride appropriate to their own skill level.  So for the courtesy, comfort and safety of all, please be honest when booking.  Minimum age is 8 (flexible for young riders with serious lesson experience).  Pony rides can be scheduled for younger riders.

Beginner Trails - Suitable for any level of riding skill, beginner trails are walk only.  Maximum number of riders on one trail is 10.

Intermediate Trails - Suitable for riders who are very comfortable at the trot.  There is a lot of trotting in this trail and can be a challenge for those just learning.  Maximum number of riders on one trail (including Guide) is 6.

Advanced Trails - Suitable for riders who are very comfortable at the trot and canter.  This trail combines walk, trot and canter to move further into the park and enjoy a wide range of scenery.  There is absolutely no galloping.  Maximum number of riders on one trail (including Guide) is 4. 


Riding is a dangerous sport and while our horses are well trained and know their jobs, you will be riding through woods and fields with other wildlife, hikers and cyclists.  It is always best to protect the only brain we are given. Certified riding helmets are provided or you may wear your own.  There are no exceptions to this rule.  If you ride our horse, you wear a helmet.
