How To Prepare For Our Ride
For beginners or families with small kids we strongly recommend trying out the hour or cave ride, something on the shorter side to test the waters. For people who have ridden before the two hour or half day are great rides! The all day rides should be booked if you’ve ridden regularly or ride often. An all day is not for people who do not ride on a regular basis as it’s typically too physically demanding. It’s important to remember that you’re riding on a live animal, if you aren’t riding in a proper position because you are sore/achy/tired you can make it uncomfortable for the horse.
- 5 years old and up can ride
- 5 – 10 years old, an hour ride is appropriate for their attention span
Listen to your body (physical condition). People with joint problems(knees/hips/back) problems should not ride for more than an hour.

Depends on the condition, but if you choose to book a ride we recommend that you book no more than an hour ride. It’s the appropriate length to test out how you might feel without overdoing it!
Our hour ride is very easy terrain to ride. Great for novice riders or those that have an aversion to heights. All other rides have varying degrees of mountainous terrain with uneven ground and rocky country.
All rides are walking only. The terrain is not conducive to trotting or faster pace due to uneven rocky terrain.
