“Great experience!”

Spokane Trail Rides
Reviewed August 28, 2014

While my wife and I were on vacation in a Spokane we signed up for a two hour horseback ride with Spokane Trail Rides as a way to share an experience with our son who just moved to Fairchild AFB. We haven't ridden horses in a while, so we were excited but apprehensive. Jan met us and immediately put us at ease. Our guide was fantastic. She introduced us to our horses, got us settled and led us on a trail with spectacular views of wetlands (yes, in Spokane!) while surrounded by Ponderosa Pines from above, then we worked our way down the trail to watch Herons and other wildlife as we worked our way back to the ranch. My horse was huge, gentle, stubborn, calm and very patient. My wife's horse was a cream colored gelding that really connected with her, and my sons horse was also amazing. It turned out to be the highlight of our vacation. I highly recommend Spokane Trail Rides if you want to get a little taste of the old west adventure without a lot of risk. It was a great experience I look forward to doing again next time we get back to Spokane.

Near Nature , Near Perfect . Spokane Trail Rides and Horse Boarding.

Although I live in the city I often wish I had the time to live in the country. I found just the way to do that with Spokane Trail Rides. Before I was boarding my mare out on a wonderful cow farm that was a 100 mile round trip, just so I could spend a few hours with her and teach my kido the joy of non city living. Now that I have moved PG in to town so to say, ( 10miles vs a 100) I have been able to go out and enjoy a ride as often as I would like when I would like. Jen the owner has helped me immensely with the issues PG had when I got her but never had the time or knowledge to address. She even introduced me to a bit-less, non-hackamore bridle that my mare has responded really well too. Jen has brought about a wonderful addition to the Spokane area embracing the city's slogan of " Near Nature Near Perfect" by taking a closed down horse racing facility and turned it in to a affordable choice for locals to board and for out of town visitors to take in a wonderful view of the the most choice trails available around a local nature preserve,where depending on the time of year and day you might see anything from a blue crane to a moose getting a drink of water with its calf at sunset. You can also take a tour of the chickens, mini cows, lamas, barn cats and the ever special wandering Dudley the donkey..<3 you will have to see him to understand. She also host a monthly bonfire where the boarder get to spend time talking about their horses and sharing laughs over toasting marshmallows, while the kids play tag in the dark, under a non light obscured sky perfect for going out and seeing what the real " Milky Way" looks like or take in a meteor shower that is sure to bring out a ohh and ahh in every one. She runs a wonderful horse farm, and is always happy if you want to help out around the place ( Farm work is never done ) or even if you just want to come do your thing and go she is more then happy just to say Hello. All the other boarders are also so friendly and everyone helps out if it is needed. I am so HAPPY to have found Spokane Trail Rides and Jen. My whole family enjoys our time our there.

I use the trails all the time to walk dogs and ride my bike. The trails have lots to offer to anyone who uses them. If you are into riding bikes you can ride a short distance or go to anyother city. There is the river that you get to ride along so the sits are beautiful. It is beautiful and relaxing.

I rode a Percheron Draft horse and had a wonderful time. He was steady and trustworthy, and HUGE! LOL Jen gave me some good advice and instructions before the ride, and we had a beautiful ride through fields and forests.
