"There is nothing so good for the outside of a man than the inside of a horse"
Accommodating all rider levels, we offer four riding categories, based on age and experience. Before your first ride, our Head Wrangler will conduct a safety orientation. After that we'll match you up with a horse that suits your riding level from first timer to advanced. Next, you'll have the opportunity to choose the riding group that best matches your skill level (a lope check for guests 12 years old and up is required before being allowed to enter an intermediate or advanced rider group). In each riding group or category, wranglers teach skills appropriate for the group. Each day's ride builds on the skills already learned. This is a low key, fun, challenging, but very safe way to ride. Trotting and loping is included in our riding program under careful guidance and supervision of our professional wrangler staff.
