Our wonderful four-legged friends are eager to give you and your family a great trail riding experience in the beautiful mountains of the Skagit Valley! Lola Lang and her staff want their guests and their horses to be as comfortable and safe as possible, every ride begins with a comprehensive SAFETY CLASS. Before hitting the trail, experienced guides review the proper Western seat; demonstrate reining commands to turn, slow down, and stop; and go over trail tips and safety procedures. This helps riders know what to expect from the ride, and how to give gentle and understandable commands to their mount. Our riding review will insure that riders of all levels will enjoy themselves safely.
30 minute pony ride This ride is good for most children. It is a relatively flat and easy ride. Parents should have no problem walking along on this ride.
45 minute trail ride This ride is for kids over the age of 8 with previous riding experience and Adults. It includes lots of up and down hills, with logs and roots to step over and around. The trail guide may be on horseback, and will only assist riders as needed.
Lesson/trail combo This ride includes arena and trail time. This is a good way for nervous riders to gain confidence before hitting the trails. This is also an opportunity for more experienced riders to do more than just walking. (cantering is usually not permitted on your first visit)
Mountain Trail Ride This is our most adventurous Adult ride. It is approximately 1 3/4 - 2 hours long, depending on the size of the group and the pace of the horses. It includes a spectacular view of the Skagit Valley (you can see the tulips in April). Bring your water bottle - it's a long ride so you may dismount at the top to stretch your legs and take in the view. The Mountain Ride is open to Adults, and children at least 10 years of age with prior riding experience.

No, not until he turns 8 years old. Maybe this could be a fun Birthday present for him.
It's just me. Can I go on a Private ride?

Our trail guides must be able to assist the entire group of riders. Parents are responsible for walking with their their own children if they need one on one assistance.

Why can't my 6 year old go on the longer harder trail rides?
Our longer trail guides are designed for riders over 8 years old. The trails are more challenging than our pony path and have narrow spots, hills to climb, and more chance of experiencing deer along the ride.

Long pants, closed toed shoes, and a riding helmet is the bare minimum. If you are going to do one of the combo rides or a lesson you will need shoes or boots with a heal, and jeans or riding breaches.

If you are concerned about the weather please call us right away and we will advise you. We are closed and will cancel all trail rides due to high winds, snow, heavy rain, or thunder or lightning.
