Experience the true partnership of a supervised ride on gorgeous purebred horses. Created by published horse care author Carrie Eastman to introduce people to horses as conscious beings and help people understand horse-human communication. You can ride the last son of famous racehorse Forty Thieves or a rare Malabar Arabian, or a retired competitive cow herding horse from a famous barn.
Upon arrival, guests sign a release form. Guests are then matched with their horse. Farm staff will first teach you the fundamentals of understanding horse body language and communication. You will then work with the staff to prepare the horse for the ride. Staff will assist you with mounting, and you will then be in control of your horse while staff translate the horses’ feedback. You will be offered as much or as little guidance as you prefer, while staff ensure that you have a safe ride in the riding area. Speeds are typically walk and jog or trot. Children and beginners are on a leadline, walk only, and share a horse. An obstacle course offers an extra challenge.
Guests learn partnership and communication.
