OUR FEATURES

Horses and Horseback Riding

Get to Meet the Horses

Face your fears, and get to know these amazing animals, they are like big puppy dogs, who love people.

"YOUR Party"

When you book a time slot, it is your party. No one else can book that time slot. The only way other people can join, is if they come with you.

We Teach The Basics

When People ask if we give lessons, we say no, but we teach you how to ride. We go through a few exercises to teach you what you need to know so you can feel comfortable before we go onto the trails

Children Welcome

Children LOVE riding horses! When they overcome their fears (if they have fear), they love how they gain self confidence, and believe they can do anything.

You Have a Guide

You do not go out on the trails without one of our guides. The horses are trained to walk the trails, and they know what they are expected to do.

We Bring Out Smiles

In summer and in snow, smiles show up.
It is always great to see the smiles,
and to also hear the laughter of people enjoying themselves.

people talk

Lots of people who have loved their time coming out to ride with us! 
Here are a few of the things they have said, and there are more reviews online.

Heidi was very let us pick which horse we wanted to ride! Never had that choice at other places I've ridden. It meant a lot!

If you decide to go, is recommend that you plan on more than the time allotted in your schedule, because it took quite a while to decide which of the beautiful horses I wanted to ride. I was thoroughly happy with my choice.
Can't wait to go again!

Heidi was a great host - she introduced us to the horses and told us their stories and all about their personalities. We were able to help brush them before and after the ride. I did not ride, but my husband and MIL did and said it was awesome!

I definitely recommend this place if you love horses and want to spend some quality time with them in addition to the trail ride.

Q & A

Questions and Answers about Horseback Riding

We are Based in Bethlehem Township but we ride in different parks and at different campgrounds when we go camping. The location of your ride will be in the email you recieve after you make your reservation.

We opperate by appointments only, so no.
We do not always ride at the same locations, so when you schedule a ride, that is when we get the horses ready to go out.

Yes, but they need to be at least 5 yrs old, or tall enough for their feet to safely fir into the stirrups

State Law, all children 18 yrs and under are required to wear helmets.  If you do not have one, we can let you use one of ours. 

NOTE – if your child is particular about wearing helmets, please bring one that your child will be ‘ok’ wearing the whole ride, so they will feel comfortable, and you will feel comfortable.

Children 5yrs – 18yr need to wear protective Head Gear. If you do not have a helmet, we have them.  Children under 5yrs old usually do not have long enough legs, for their feet to safely fit into the stirrups

Seniors are also welcome to ride, as far as we know, our oldest rider has been quoted at 81 yrs old.

We understand how exciting it is to have smaller children experience horses. We have always had our own children and grandchildren around the horses.
Yet for the safety of your child – Your Child NEEDS to be BOTH 5 years old AND Tall enough to fit into the stirrups!!  We can only make the stirrups so short. 

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE YOUR CHILD FROM RIDING IF YOUR CHILD CANNOT SAFELY FIT INTO THE STIRRUPS.  Without a refund.

We have had people lie to us and say their child is 5, yet their child was not.  (When they lied to us, they have put their children in danger – please to not do that for your child’s sake.)  Lying to us removes all of our liability and responsibility if your child would fall off of a horse.

We do not want anyone to get hurt, esp smaller children. 
Children NEED TO BE BOTH 5 Years old AND TALL enough to safely reach the stirrups. 
If you are not sure if your child will be tall enough to fit into a saddle, then please see if you can come and meet us at another time so your precious little one can have fun meeting the horses, we can even try to see if they will safely fit into the saddle stirrups prior to booking a ride for them.

Again, WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE YOUR CHILD FROM RIDING IF YOUR CHILD CANNOT SAFELY FIT INTO THE STIRRUPS.  Without a refund.  We ask everyone their child’s age, lying to us removes our responsibility and liability, if a child falls off of a horse.

Yes, but only with riders being too short.
Children must be tall enough to fit into the saddle with their feet fitting into the stirrups, so they are safer out on the trails.  Taller riders need to ride the taller horses.

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SMALLER CHILDREN FROM RIDING WHEN THEY CANNOT SAFELY FIT INTO SADDLE STIRRUPS. Without a refund.  Please read more about this in the “Smaller Children” section.

Some heavier people have complained about it being uncomfortable sitting in the saddle(s).
Others have stated the insides of their legs hurt  as they stretch their legs around the horse.

YOU need to be able to get up on the horse you will be riding.
  (This means you need to put your foot up into the stirrup, and be able to step up, and also pull up as you hold the saddle horn and the back of the saddle to pull yourself up. 
We will help you, but you need to do most of it.)

YOU will need to be able to sit with your legs around the horse and keep yourself balanced on the horse.  For some heavier people this is not a problem.

YES we do have a horse who can carry a heavier person, he is also one of the taller horses and fatter horses.  Not all horses can carry a heavier person easily.

Note, when people are between 300-350 pounds, the saddle can be uncomfortable when they sit in the saddle, because of how close the saddle horn is to their belly and how they fit in the back of the saddle seat. 

Again, some heavier people have complained about it being uncomfortable sitting in the saddle(s), others have stated the insides of their legs hurt as they stretch their legs around the horse.

We will be outside, and horses NEED to be socially distanced from each other so they do not get kicked by the horse in front of them.

Thus, do what you want or need to do.
If you want to wear a mask the whole time, then feel free to.
If you cannot wear a mask, then feel free not to.
We respect your ability to choose what you feel is safe to do while being outside and social distancing.

We understand that sometimes life (and death) happens.

IF THE rest of your party wants to go but you cannot,
No Problem, that is fine, just change the head count for the number of riders coming out.
And you try to book another ride when you can.

IF YOU want cancel your party’s time slot then we will try our best to reschedule you as soon as we can.  Time slots have been filling up fast, and You need to reschedule within the next six months.

Rescheduling is something you will need to speak with someone in management to help you with.  We do not offer refunds for trail rides.
(Camping has a slightly different policy since we cannot reschedule those trips.)

The weather is always changing, and even when it looks like we will have bad weather, the best time to check the weather is the morning of the ride.

To us, bad weather is when it is raining, or if the trails are icy and not safe to ride on.
Otherwise we are always out in the weather.  Sun and snow, rain and shine, all year long.

What about if it is too cold?
That is a perspective issue – meaning, the issue of being “too cold” is relative to whomever is asking the question. For example to some people, if they need a jacket, their perspective is that it is too cold to plan outdoor activities. While to some other people ski all day with the cold beating onto their face, their perspective of riding a horse for an hour plus a little more time outside is nothing when it is cold out. So being too cold is really your perspective of what you may think would be too cold.
We always recommend to wear layers
