The Lang Farm has been offering guided trail rides since 1975. With well over 300 acres of forestland, there are lots of horse trails to explore. We offer a variety of different guided ride lengths, so there is something for everyone - from a 15 minute pony ride for the kids, to our mountain trail ride.
Semi Private Rides

Our semi private rides are a real treat as they give you the personalized attention of your own wrangler and let you customize the ride. You get to do some trotting if all riders are capable. We err on the side of safety and will not trot if all riders are not comfortable.

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 trail 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.
15 minute pony ride This ride is great for 3 and 4 year olds just trying out riding for the first time.
30 minute trail 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 includes some hills, but is still fairly easy. A great choice for groups with mixed ages and levels of riders. The trail guide can still walk on foot if there are young children needing help, or they will ride if all in the party are independent riders.
1 hour trail ride This ride is for kids over the age of 8 and Adults. Exceptions can be made for younger kids with lots of riding experience. It includes lots of up and down hills, and logs and roots to step over and around. The trail guide will be on horseback, and will only assist riders as needed.
Short lesson/trail combo is 1 hour long and includes time in a riding arena to learn basic horsemanship skills and time on the trails. This is a great introduction to horseback riding for kids.
Long lesson/trail combo also includes arena and trail time. It is 1.5 hours long. 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 lesson)
Mountain Trail Ride This is our most popular 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 and snacks - it's a long ride so we dismount at the top to stretch our legs and take in the view. We do not recomend the Mountain Ride for kids under 10 years of age, or for kids with no riding experience.
All inclusive Couples Ride A 1 or 2 hour Private trail ride followed by a cowboy campfire. We will provide you with a romantic smores basket. Also included is complimentary t-shirt souvenirs for each of you. This is our most romantic ride, and is perfect for anniversaries or birthdays. Evening and after work appointments available upon request. The 1 hour ride is $170 per couple, and the 2 hour ride is $230 per couple.
