Trail Ride through the wilderness of Running Horse Ranch, two hours/ $90
For all riders at first:
Required for all our rides is to work and build a rider- horse relation ship! For this experience we begin with all our new riders in our safe fenced in arena.
This will help riding guests to connect to their mounts and prepare for their upcoming adventure in a remote and rugged wilderness!
Meet your horse in our arena. Before you mount, we will instruct you at first on which cues your horse easily respond. Practice rein management, ride around barrels, over poles, trot, maybe canter and back your horse up. Testing out all those skills, will bond and prepare you for a great ride out on the trail. We’ll make sure the saddle/ stirrups fits your seat properly, and you feel safe.
Afterwards we hit the trails.
This ride will take you out on some exotic single track trails at the ranch. Balanced and Riders with a firm seat will go out for some long periods of trotting, possible cantering, climbing mountains, riding switchbacks, river beds, ravines. This trail is loaded with exotic views, and obstacles. It will challenge a riders seat position, riders which are not so confident will learn while receiving patient instructions to overcome their fear.
With some luck we maybe watching some wildlife, like deer, mountain lion or a eagle flying in the sky.
