An excellent place to learn how to ride a horse. I first came to this stable when I was a young teenager (yeah, probably about 40 years ...). It hasn't changed very much. Located in Prospect on the back side of Holiday Hill.

I brought my grandson for his first horseback riding experience. Our leader was very knowledgeable and took time to make sure that my grandson was comfortable in the saddle and that he understood how to use the reins to steer the horse. Being cautious of my grandson's age (8) we kept to a walk or an occasional trot since some of the paths were on the rocky side.

Thank you Patty for allowing my grandson to experience this!! It definitely made his day.

Note: It's probably best not to take a purse or any kind of baggage, although a fanny-pack would probably work. If you want a picture of yourself on a horse you can always ask the crew, they'll be more than happy to accommodate.

Clothing: I would suggest long pants, long sleeves or a t-shirt and jeans. Don't forget that flies love to buzz around the horses and a bite from a horsefly hurts!! No open-toed shoes or flip flops. There's a reason cowboys wear boots!!

Price: $50 per hour
Reservation: Call Patty at least one day in advance

Lessons: Yes they do have horse back riding lessons available for young children. Talk to Patty.

I worked underaged many years ago leading trail rides. I witnessed Patti’s boyfriend beating horses with a baseball bat when they would not take a bit because of a bad tooth. It haunts me to this day. I was too young to know what to do. Patti condoned this abuse. Please DO NOT patronize an establishment that ABUSES their horses or any animal.

I had a great experience at this place! It was my first time riding as well as my daughter. The staff were all very sweet, and the horses were beautiful and very well kept😊
