Grandpa bought our farm back in April of 1944 from his Uncle Will Paugh. He milked a few dairy cows and kept a couple of horses around. My Dad continued on with the farm, expanding into horses for recreation. And now my husband, three daughters and I would like to invite you to ride with us. We are third generation farmers bringing up the fourth generation, milking cows, raising a few beef and yes, still riding horses.

Our guided trail rides are private with your own guide. We want to personalize your horseback riding experience; we won't group you with other riders to fill a quota! The trail winds into the hillsides, into the woods of mature maples and oaks, around fields following streams through old apple orchards here on our family farm - the gentle Appalachian range here offers beautiful countryside views.

Our trail horses are well-trained and represent several different breeds
including American Quarter Horses, American Paint Horses, Belgians, Percherons, Clydesdales, Pintos, Arabians, and what we lovingly refer to as "Heinz 57 Variety." Of our stock we have horses for all types of riders,
from the novice to the well experienced. We saddle up with western tack.

We are a family business that answers the telephone when you call, welcomes you to the ranch when you arrive and do our best to help you and your family enjoy a safe, fun horse experience.

When was the last time you took the kids for a pony ride or you went for a horseback ride?

Come feel like a kid again.
You'll be glad you did...

Herd of Horses Running in Winter

New this Winter! We are offering one-horse open sleigh rides with our gentle giants - Percherons and Clydesdales.  Snuggle down under the warmth of the sleigh blanket with your friends and family to enjoy crossing through the snowy countryside.  What an experience!
