Do I need reservations?
Yes, you need to make reservations as soon as you know your plans for the week. During the peak season, slots fill up quickly. We reserve a horse just for you. You may now make reservations on line. We appreciate a call when you need to cancel so that someone else may take your time slot.
Do I need to cancel a reservation?
Absolutely. We ask you to please be considerate and cancel your ride as soon as you can. You can cancel your on line reservations as well. Your time slot and horse have been reserved for you. When someone is a no-show, that is time lost that someone else could have ridden. We are a small, privately owned business and can't absorb the loss of revenue for No-shows.
What kind of payments do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards, debit cards and ITEX. Cash is always good too!
What should I wear for a trail ride?
You should wear comfortable clothing such as jeans or long pants. You should wear comfortable shoes, such as tennis shoes, that will not slide off the feet while on the trail. All cellphones, purses and backpacks should be left in your vehicle or the office during your ride.
What times do the trail rides go out?
The short rides go out at 10:15 a.m. and 1:15 a.m. The long rides go out at 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Please plan allow plenty of driving time to arrive about 15 minutes before your scheduled ride. We will notify you in plenty of time in the event the ride is canceled due to weather or some other unforseen factor.
If I change my mind, can I get a refund?
Our policy is that once you are on the horse, you will not receive a refund. Refunds will not be given if the ride did not meet your expectations. Refunds for pony rides with young children may be given at the discretion of our staff.
