Please take a look, we hope we can answer some of your questions here.
Each rider must be on their own horse. The age for a trail ride is 6+. Younger kids can enjoy a Little Dude Ride or a Lesson!
Our horses are extremely gentle and kids generally are very comfortable on the trails. For our younger / nervous riders we will "pony" them. This is where your guide will lead the childs horse from their horse to help navigate through the trails.
Cash is great (and still accepted during COVID). Please try to bring exact change if possible. We can also accept Etransfer (in advance) or Visa at the ranch.
All services (trail rides, camps, cabins, lessons, etc. require a 50% deposit is required). Deposits are non refundable (rain or shine).
We ride rain or shine! Often the rain blows by us or lasts only a very short time. The trails are safe when wet. Please dress accordingly!
You are only required to wear a mask while signing in. Once you are outside & on horseback you are not required to wear a mask.
We ask you arrive 20 minutes prior to your appointment (or 30 minutes for larger groups) to get signed in. Everyone will need a waiver to ride, those under 18 must have their legal parent or guardian sign their waiver (this can be printed and brought to the ranch. We also recommend that you give yourself an additional 30 minutes leeway following your appointment as the trail ride time varies depending on the group size & ability and size.
Long pants are highly recommended (jeans, leggings or track pants are suitable).
A boot with a small heel (blundstones, timberlands, rubber boots) often work well. There are boots available at the ranch if yours aren't suitable.
Helmets required for those under 18, helmets are complimentary at the ranch.
Only certified ESTM riding helmets are suitable for horse riding. Bike, ski or other helmets are not permitted.
