Basics of Riding
The most important thing to do when riding is to relax. 😊 Just like people, every horse is different. Learn about your horse and their personality as you ride.
Hold the rein in each hand.
Keep a loose rein when riding on the trails.
To turn right, pull with your right hand towards your hip.
To turn left, pull with your left hand towards your hip.
To get the horse moving, nudge their belly with your heels.
Keep your heels down and your toes up in the stirrups.
Do not squeeze your legs together while riding as this asks the horse to trot.
To stop the horse, pull back on the reins gently towards your hips and say "Whoa." When the horse is stopped, don't keep pulling back on the reins because that will cause them to back up.
Please feel free to call if you have any questions! 😊 We'd love to chat!
Please Be Kind
Our horses are rescues! Please be gentle and kind as they have graciously allowed us to ride them.
All of our experiences must be booked in advanced. Our calendar fills quickly, so be sure to plan ahead!
Tips are not required, however, our guides work very hard to make your horse experience safe and enjoyable.
Please consider letting our guides know that you appreciate them!
Helmets are always recommended. Bring your own or rent one of our sanitized, ASTM/SEI certified equine helmets on site.
Our horses are very gentle and our guides are focused on the safety of your group. We match you with the right horse based on your riding experience.
