Our horses are highly trained to safely carry the first-time rider as well as the more advanced equestrian. We make every attempt to explain all aspects of trail riding and safety management for both the riders and the horses. All age requirements are mandatory, and must be strictly observed for the safety and well being of your children. Please DO NOT try to mislead your trail guide as to the actual age of your child. The age requirements are based on average ability to be able to comprehend handling a horse by themselves. NO ride is worth  your child's safety, so please follow this guideline! Our horses are professionally trained, and every safety precaution is taken into consideration, but you must be aware horses are unpredictable animals, and there is always inherent risk taken when horseback riding. These rules are for your safety as well as our horses, please do not put yourself or someone else at risk by careless behavior.
