Trail Rides & Lessons

We offer a variety of option for folks just looking to come out and spend some time horsing around on the ranch, or wanting to add a horse experience to another program here.  However, since this isn’t our primary focus, scheduling is subject to other programs happening at the ranch and staff availability. 

 
Trail rides, including a brief lesson and about 2 hours on the trail through our beautiful woods, past the wilderness cemetery, and along Rock Creek Canyon.  Depending on staff availability, we can accommodate up to 6 riders aged 10 or older.  For more than 2 riders at a time, some of the riders must have experience, and in all cases safety will be assessed before taking riders on the trail.  Riders not ready for the trail may be given a lesson instead of a trail ride.  $75 guide fee plus $40/person

Group lesson and arena riding for adults and/or children, with riders taking turns, learning from several horses, and spending a total of about 30 minutes astride.  $30/person

Pony ride for children, a great first experience with horses for young or nervous children.  We’ll bring out one or two of our gentlest, most steady horses, teach kids to approach and brush them safely, and boost them up for a safe and memorable walk around the yard or arena.  $15/person

We can not accommodate riders over 220 pounds.  

We may be able to offer your group a lunch at the ranch, guided hike or other tailored program, just contact us to brainstorm!
