Unless you are a jockey dressed in racing silks we are not going to gallop. There may be an opportunity to trot or canter on certain trails (booked privately) if everyone is safe and secure in the saddle. Safety is our first priority!
No double riding is permitted at any time. Riding double is difficult and can be dangerous. Children 6 years old and older ride their own horse, a trail guide can lead the kiddo if they are not able to ride on their own. We have well behaved, kid safe, beginner safe horses and great guides!
We are a western trail stable! We do not have english saddle. Our horses are fitted to their saddle for their comfort. We can not permit different saddles to be used on our horses.
Helmet are required for riders under 18 years old. Riders 16 years old and older can have a parent approve the denial of a helmet. We do provide helmets however you are welcome to bring a helmet (including bicycle helmets) from home as well. Riders over 18 years old are not required to wear helmets.
We do not have a hard rule on weight limit. Please call or email and let us know the height and weight of the rider(s) you are worried about. We do have heavier horses and can usually accommodate.
We are near the coast so the weather can vary. Dress is layers (no matter what the weather report says).
Group rides are walking only trail rides. They are made up of your group joined by other group riders that want to enjoy the same trail.
Private rides are exclusive to your group with a trail guide. Private rides are good for riders that would like a more focused ride . If all riders are safe and secure in the saddle, a private ride opens up an opportunity to trot (jog) or canter (lope) the horses. There may be trail restrictions for riding faster than a walk. Safety is our first priority.
Yes please! We are a busy stable and reservations are highly recommended. Same day reservations are welcome. Advanced reservations are the best way for us to best take care of our guests!
