What you'll do
Upon arrival at the barn, you will be given a 5 minute introduction to basic horsemanship. You will learn, or if you already know how, be reminded how to securely and safely ride a horse. Once in the saddle, you will be able to enjoy the fresh air and nature as you ride up and down hills, along the rim of our overlook, stop for pictures at your request and from your guide, learn about horses, the history of the area and so much more. No experience is necessary for our ride. The horses are gentle and have been ridden on the trails many times.
