Be sure to arrive 30 minutes before your start time! Once you arrive at the stables, we will have a chat about your riding experience, goals, and any concerns you may have. Once we have chosen a horse for you, time to get ready! While your horse is being prepared, You will be shown to the changing room to put on riding trousers, socks, riding boots, and a helmet. Chaps and gloves are also available. You will be given a bag for your phone/camera. Your horse will be brought to the mounting block, after mounting we will help you adjust your equipment if necessary, and you can ride your horse for a few minutes in the closed arena before the ride. Beginners will get a chance to practice basic commands and advanced riders will have time to introduce themselves to their horse. Once everyone is comfortable, the ride will begin. Two guides will accompany groups with mixed abilities. You can choose from the sunrise ride, the sunset ride, swimming with your horse (mornings only) or the moonlight ride (dates depend on moon cycles).

We have no weight limits, but you should be reasonably fit and flexible. While no riding experience is required to swim with your horse, you should be a competent swimmer. Arrive early!
