About your horseback ride . . .

The friendly well-mannered horses: Nicholas, Tripoli, Windy, Bunny and Shamrock are waiting to take you for your privately guided trail ride down beautiful mountain trails, along scenic mountain valley roads, and past our lake and stream. All of our horses are very gentle, they know they're loved, and perfectly suited for beginners to experienced riders.

(A maximum of 4 riders per ride only)
Equus Meadow is quite different from other riding stables. Each rider is treated with individual attention. When you ride with us, we take only you and the other persons in your party. Private Guided Horseback Riding by appointment. NO strangers riding with you!

If you've never ridden a horse before, this is the place for you, because each rider is given personal attention and horsemanship guidance by your trail guide Ken, which makes for a safe and wonderful riding experience. That is why we limit the number of riders per ride :0)

If you are a more experienced rider, you'll see our horses are very responsive to your commands. Beginners and experienced riders are allowed to ride at their own ability level (trotting and cantering is always allowed). But if you  wish to just go for a walk, that's fine too!

"Whatever your experience level may be, by the end of your ride, you'll know you had one of the most fun horseback riding experiences ever!"
