Happy Horses, Happy Riders
Country Trails is home to a herd of nearly 30 seasoned lesson and trail horses. Our horses are selected for temperment and experience. We have horses gentle enough for first-time riders, as well as horses who have excelled in the show-circuit and have much to teach to our advancing students. We love our horses, and we know you will too!
