Horseback Riding and Lessons

Sorry, No Trail Rides

We ride on our own property, in our indoor arena and in pastures

We cater to younger or beginner riders. Kids mostly. Adults who want to ride on trails should try Shenandoah.

We try to keep things slow and controlled here. Very Slow and Safe.

Kids need to overcome their fears, we help with that.


We let paying guests borrow our two kayaks and 6 bicycles.

Liability Release

To go into horse enclosures or borrow the bikes/kayaks we require a signed liability release: Horse Activity, Boating, and Bicycling Liability Release Form

Stay in our Vacation Rentals to Enjoy the Area

If you are an animal lover this is a place you will feel comfortable. Call ahead if you have a horse you'd like to bring. We don't allow dogs or cats to come unless we pre-approve them. We won't pre-approve unless they have been introduced to our dogs and horses first.

We have seven beautiful horses. Our herd has been together for over 10 years so they all know their place and they are all very comfortable here.

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway with horses and beautiful scenery surrounded by nature you have found the right place. We have a very large indoor riding arena, an outdoor dressage area and pastures. There are wilderness areas a short distance from our facility as well. We do not currently provide trail rides on horseback. Please don't enter any horse enclosures unless liability release has been signed by all adults and guardians have signed for children, and you have express permission, each time you enter a horse enclosure, from one of the Wranglers (Roger and Sabina). You are welcome to enjoy the beauty of these majestic animals as you enjoy your stay in our comfortale apartments.
