Country Trails and Riding School Hours
Country Trails is open Tuesday through Sunday. We are closed major holidays. Please note that we are an active, working ranch, and our office hours vary depending on rides, vet calls, and other barn work being done throughout the day. If we are unable to answer phones or greet you at our guest window during normal business hours, CTRS staff will promptly return emails and voicemails at our earliest availability.

Weekends and holidays can be fairly busy at the park. If the lots are ever full due to park activities, guests are welcome to park on the dirt in front of our office during their trail ride.
