What you'll do

You will discover our beautiful Appalachian mountain range during a jaunt in the saddle of a calm and well trained horse.First, 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.

If you would like to spend more time with a horse, we also offer 2-hour and day trailrides.
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.

Nous avons adoré la visite pédagogique (beaucoup plus intéressante que ce à quoi je m'attendais!) et la randonnée à cheval et nous allons les recommander autour de nous! C'est un excellent rapport qualité-prix et tout le personnel est très attentionné. L'endroit est superbe aussi pour la randonnée.

Had the most friendly, beautiful, peaceful, and exciting time at this farm and on our trail ride. The ranch is filled with beautiful animals that are clearly being given a great life. The trail ride was picturesque, informative, and fun, and engaging for anyone from beginner to expert. I would recommend it to anyone!

This was such a wonderful experience. As someone who had never ridden a horse, Sandra and Jurg made us feel so comfortable and so welcome. The horses were very gentle and we had a wonderful time. I highly recommend the Fall season, the leaves were beautiful along the trail!

What a nice experience! My horse, Hidalgo, and I really hit it off. It was my fiancé’s first time riding a horse and he felt comfortable and had a great time. We recommend!
