Our guided trail rides are private with your own guide. We want to personalize your horseback riding experience! 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.

SAME DAY RESERVATIONS: You may be able to walk in at the last minute BUT calling first helps us to be better prepared for you.

Ideally, you should make your reservation no more than a week in advance, up to a day or two prior to the day you would like to ride. Since we do have other farming activities to keep us plenty busy, we do depend on the advance reservations in the Fall, Winter and Spring months for scheduling our day’s workload.  A reservation helps us to be better prepared for you.


CANCELLATION POLICY : 24 hour advance notice required for ANY cancellations. If you book for 6 and show up with 5 you are billed for the 6th person unless you cancel that person by noon the day before. Please call us 24 hours ahead of time so we can open up slots for folks on the waiting list. We schedule adequate guides, tack up horses, and turn others away when we become fully booked. You may be required to provide a credit card to confirm your reservation.


HELMETS ~ We do require children under the age of 16 years to wear a helmet while riding with us. Helmets are optional for adult riders - there is no additional charge. Our helmets are ASTM/SEI (Equestrian standard) certified or you may choose to bring your own.
   What To Bring ~ What To Wear Horseback Riding
