What you'll do

You will discover our beautiful Appalachian mountain range during a jaunt in the saddle of a calm and well trained horse.First, each client will be matched with a horse according to their size and experience. You will lead your horse by foot to the stable, and will be able to establish mutual confidence through brushing and other preparations. Once everyone is helmeted-up, we leave the stable for the paddocks. There, mounted and with stirrups adjusted, we give a short lesson on riding techniques. The enclosed paddock is the ideal place for each rider to test what they've learned about horseback riding. After the initiation, we leave for an excursion on the magnificent mountain trails with their splendid view over the Appalachian range. At the halfway point, we will stop on the mountain top to take in the beautiful view. The activity ends by showing appreciation to our horse for the lovely ride.

If you would like to spend more time with a horse, we also offer 2-hour and day trailrides.
Consider trying our other animal experiences with alpacas, dogs and the other inhabitants of our educational farm.
Other things to note
This activity is offered throughout the year, in all weather.
Only children 14 years and over are accepted.
For younger children, reserve in our 'equestrian initiation' activity.
The trail ride happens principally at a walking pace, with some trotting if possible, but generally not galloping.

Great experience thank you for a terrific time. The only issue was the Airbnb app not translating the French to English so made communication challenging but the host was very friendly and accommodating. Thank you Jurg 😊

L'endroit est tout simplement magnifique! J'ai adoré mon expérience. Les chevaux sont calmes et ont l'air heureux :) Mon seul regret est de ne pas avoir pris la randonnée plus longue ;) Merci encore pour ce bon moment!!

J'aurais aimé avoir plus de temps pour apprendre les bases étant donné que j'avais aucune expérience avec les chevaux. Sinon, la monitrice Anna était super.
