Your Horse Riding Ability
Here are some guidelines to help you judge your riding ability
Child age-restrictions
  • On our trails outside the farm we do not accommodate children under the age of 9 unless they are strong intermediate riders.
  • Children between the ages of 9 and 13 that are novice riders must be accompanied on the guided trails by an adult that they feel confident with.
English Style Saddles
All of our horses are ridden with English Style Saddles.

If you only have Western-type saddle experience, you will be considered to be a Novice rider unless you have taken English riding lessons. For any trail ride other than those specifically identified for Novices, riders will need to be familiar with English saddles, be confident and have experience of rising trot and 2 point canter
