Group Size

2-4 riders

At this time we do small private groups only.  We keep a small number of horses and do a limited number of rides. We downsized our horses for the pasture we have available. We specialize in personalized rides with professional horse trainers as guides.

 

Both trails are scenic and travel through the boreal forests and grassland areas. The longer ride is recommended for more experienced riders. The trails do require riders be comfortable navigating their horses on their own. The trails in the park we use are not manicured and we can encounter wet areas, down trees, hills, wildlife etc. 

Do you run the horses on the rides?

We do not. Our horses are 15+ and in order to keep them happy and healthiest we keep our rides to a relaxed pace. Typically riders we see daily are beginner riders and not yet balanced, this means more concussion is put on the horse at higher speeds. For our guys, the relaxed pace means they have less risk of being body sore or getting an injury.

 

If you are looking for a faster paced ride, please check out other outfitters in the area. At this time, we don't feel its in the best interest of our horses.

 

 

 

Options for Kids?

Check out the interactive horse experience. Although  it does not involve riding, it does get everyone up close and personal to several of our horses. For any horse crazy people, this is an experience focused on connection & partnership with the horse.
