FOR EXPERIENCED RIDERS ONLY
For one to fly...
One needs only to
take the reins
To fly through the trees while listening to the thunder of hooves striking the earth is one of the most liberating experiences one can have. Take in the beautiful landscape of west Michigan as we walk, trot, and canter our way down sandy roads and forested trails.

We love having fun and connecting with people on these rides! However, our horses' well-being will ALWAYS come first. Before the endurance ride, we assess the riders' abilities on their horses at all gaits. Riders who are bouncing, slapping, swaying, or other similar patterns will only be allowed to ride at a walk in order to prevent our horses from being hurt. Rough hands and/or poor horsemanship will absolutely NOT be tolerated.
Riders MUST agree to accept a walk-only ride if any member of their party does not pass the assessment.
NOTICE: The horses we use for endurance are not all trained to walk in a relaxed dude-line like a typical trail horse. We prefer them to be lively, curious, and eager to explore. They are not known to rear or buck, but they are more "go" than "whoa" and like giddying up on these rides. 😊 For there to be a partnership, you must be confident in your seat and cues when riding these energetic horses.
$90 per rider - one and a half hour
$120 per rider - two hour
