Ride-A-Horse Obstacle Course
You want to ride? We have horses. We just don’t have USDA Forest Service Service Days left on the trails. We can, however, let you ride a horse in our corrals around, over and through fun obstacles, with an amazing, scenic view of the mountains. Smell the horse, hear the squeak of leather, the 4-letter words from frustrated riders, (like “Cool!”). It’s not perfect, but it can be fun (if you are fun). The kids can hang out with the goats while you ride as they will be semi-supervised and in a fenced area with gentle animals. You can see them while you ride. Adults and kids as young as 6 can participate. 1-Hour sessions between 11:30 and 2:30 in OCTOBER only.
