new program for winter! hour+ ‘ring games’! $35 redbarn knows you, your friends &family want to ride! but it has been one of the wettest winters ever for trails. (bah humbug!) introducing ‘ring games’! Start with basics of position ,how to guide & trot. Practice those skills on an obstacle course : maze, weaving, trot poles. Then let the games begin! red light green light, tack box drop, weaving race, etc.on horseback. We keep score and winner receives our sincere congratulations & a prize! (note: This is still beginner friendly but much more than a lesson or ring ride!)
HALF HOUR TRAIL $20 : Great for beginners, scenic enough for intermediate riders. Travel through the woods by the river and across several pastures. We walk beside our youngest riders ( 6 yrs +) so that the whole family can ride!
HOUR RIDE $40 : For EXPERIENCED RIDERS ONLY! Walk across the wooden bridge over Twelve Mile Creek into open pastures where herds of horses graze freely. Ride up a mountain path through the woods and emerge at a pond to let your horses drink. Travel back into the bottoms by the river under a canopy of shade trees. Watch for deer, blue heron and redtail hawks. With so many acres you can take a different hour ride each time you come. (bridge to outer pastures closed for winter due to flood damage -intermediate hour ride still available along scenic 12 mile creek trail and pastures)
