Horseback Riding & Trail Rides

Valley residents and visitors will enjoy the experience of a leisurely guided trail ride in the beautiful Massanutten Mountains.

All of our horses are trail-wise and gentle, so even if you’ve never sat astride a horse, you will feel completely at ease. Our knowledgeable and experienced trail guides will match the horse and the rider and give everyone riding instructions before and during the ride.

We are open year-round, seven days a week, weather–permitting. Our rides are one-hour long and suitable for the beginner 10 years old and older or anyone else who loves to ride and to observe nature at its best.

Trail rides are by reservation only and, during the busy season, can be fully booked several days in advance.

  • Special discounts for church, school and company groups.
