Trail Riding

Trail rides are about an hour long. Rides follow well groomed trails across open fields and managed woodlands. There is a richness of animal and plant life. Don't be surprised by Deer standing a few feet away, 'people watching', as you ride past. Our rides are tailored to each group, with a variety of different horses and trails. We will pick the horse for you based on your ability. All rides go at the speed of the least comfortable rider to keep it safe and enjoyable for everyone. Most rides will trot and canter.

Day Camps

Day camps are either full day or half day. The day is tailored to the day campers, and include trail rides, lessons, and horse care time. You will meet lots of young riders like yourself, prepare to have fun and leave tired.


Our instructors' goal is to help young riders become comfortable on their horse, ride safely and have a good time. Each lesson is tailored to the students' level, starting at the beginning and moving up to basic jumping.

What to bring?

Picking appropriate clothing will make the ride much more comfortable. We suggest wearing full length pants. Boots with a small heel are best, sneakers are ok.

Helmets are manditory and are supplied. You may bring your own approved riding helmet. Bicycle and hockey helmets are designed for those sports and are not suitable for riding.
