We offer several trail ride options for all levels of riders. Please note that we do not take children under 7 years of age out for trail rides and we have a 200lbs weight limit. All riders regardless of previous experience, must prove sufficient balance and control on a horse in an arena before going out on the trails. Appropriate riding attire is recommended. Riding Helmets, boots with a heel and long pants are required. As a safety precaution we do not allow handheld electronics to be used during trail rides. All trail rides must be scheduled in advance and require a deposit at the time of scheduling. To schedule a trail ride call us at (717) 669-9439 or email at email@example.com
