Horseback Riding in the Appalachians
You begin your equine experience with a visit into our sizeable herd of 40 horses, where you will be able to approach and observe the horses in their natural environment, and learn interesting facts about them. Next, 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. At the end, we invite you to stay a while longer and take advantage of the surroundings and our picnic area, in the event that you packed a snack. 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.

I can create a tour on demand if I'm available, or can change the time if you'd like it at a different time of the day (for example I can move a tour scheduled at noon to 12:30 as long as no one booked a spot yet). Not having a date in the calendar doesn't always mean i'm not available. Also if I'm available I can usually start a tour within 1.5 to 2 hours of you messaging me. Pricing: Private tours for up to 2 people are available for $150 CAD during the week. Private tours for larger groups are $45 per adult.
