Happy Horses, Happy Riders

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

Our Trail Horses

Thistle is a sweet Bay Quarter Horse mare.  Don't let her name fool you, she is kind, steady, and happy to guide her guests through our beautiful park.  Thistle loves scratches on her neck and having her shoulders rubbed!



Annie is a Liver Chestnut Quarter Horse mare, and is one of our trusty guide horses.  She is steady and brave on trail, and watches over our trail rides from the front or  the back to guide the way!  She loves treats and cuddles



Panema is a Roan Quarter Horse mare. She is very inquisitive and likes to visit with humans and horses alike. Panama always has her ears forward, happy to greet you! Her color is very unique and just one of her many fine features.



Patti is a shiny Chestnut Quarter Horse mare.  She can often be found hanging out in the trail pen with her look-alike buddy Chex.  You can tell the two apart because Patti's coat is slightly darker.  Patti loves carrots!



Gracie is a fleabitten Gray Quarter Horse who likes spending time with her "pasture twin" Whisper.  They are often confused for one another when standing side-by-side! Gracie can be a little bashful at first, but she loves to be cuddled!



Chex is a pretty Sorrel Quarter Horse mare.  She has a beautiful coat that glistens in the sunlight.  Chex can be a little shy, and likes to stick by her friend Patti.  She loves rolling in the pen after a day on trail!



Raider is a black Quarter Horse gelding. However, he loves sunbathing, so his coat often lightens his coat.  If you visit him in the spring, he has a beautiful color.  He is a clown and will do almost anything for carrots!



Sweetie is a lovely Chocolate Palamino Quarter Horse mare.  She lives up to her name and is as sweet and pretty as the come, you'll often see her hanging by the water trough taking a little sip!
