  1. Be fitted with an approved safety helmet.

  3. Be matched with a horse appropriate to your skill level.
  4. Groom your horse to help you form a bond, and perhaps assist with tacking.
  5. Enjoy a “mini lesson” in the outdoor riding arena and then take a 45-minute relaxing walk-only ride, directly off the property to enjoy scenic views.
  6. Upon returning to the riding arena - riders who are able to - could enjoy the chance to trot or canter.

Expect to spend two hours when you arrive, and please wear long pants and shoes with a heel if you have some.
