What you'll do

Prior to your arrival, Nicole will message you and determine what level of experience you have with riding horses. Once you arrive on our property, Nicole and/or Jeff will greet you and already have your horses ready and matched to your level of experience. You will then be led to our riding ring where you will have the opportunity to learn about general horse care and safety. In the riding ring, you will have the opportunity to mount your horse and learn how to steer and control your horse and become comfortable before embarking on the trail ride.

Once you are comfortable, you will be guided on a private tour of our 52 acre estate where you will go through woods, open fields, across ridge lines and enjoy being on a horse with breathtaking mountain views.

On the ride we will also snap a few complimentary pictures for you to share with friends and family or add to your social media.

At the end of your ride, we will help you dismount and you will have the opportunity to love on your horse and snap a few extra last minute selfies.

We are a family run farm. April and her late husband, Reid, purchased the property in the late 1980s and began a cabin rental company and a guest farm. When April's husband, Reid, passed away in 2009, April and her Son, Jeff decided to help supplement income by introducing weddings and receptions into the business model which helped afford to maintain the property and grow the business.

Horses were always a big part of the "guest farm" experience that April and Reid had originally built. When Jeff married his wife, Nicole, in 2016, Nicole helped bring the horse activity on property to a totally new level.

Nicole is a professional Arabian horse trainer and has been a member of the Arabian Horse Association for 20 years. With over 20 years of experience, Nicole has "taken the reins" and is the head of our private horse program.

Where we'll meet
Townsend
When you enter our private estate and leave the rest of the world at the gate, you will feel your anxiety level drop almost immediately. As you crest the hill you will see the stables directly in front of you. Drive slowly and watch for chickens crossing the road. Follow the signs and park your car on the back side of the stables and one of our friendly staff will meet you and show you where to go from there.

    Jeff and Nicole were amazing, they were so nice and reassuring. I had no experience prior to riding and I learned quick with their instruction and guidance. They are super attentive, and kind. They answer all my questions and shared stories. It’s so personal and close knit and perfect. Their property was absolutely stunning abs breath taking. Would definitely do this again!!

    Great experience! They worked with us on issues with inclement weather and rescheduling which we so much appreciated. You can tell their horses are loved and properly taken care of. The property is beautiful and we had a great time!

    This was a great experience. They were very personable and really know their horses well. They helped make everyone feel comfortable on the horses during the ride. They are very knowledgeable and you can tell they spend a lot of time caring for their horses properly. I would recommend this to anyone.

    This was absolutely wonderful, way more than I anticipated! We were met by Nicole, her husband, and very sweet daughter. They went the extra mile for us as we were celebrating my girlfriends graduation they had flowers and congratulated her when we arrived which meant the world to her and me as well! Nicole was very patient with me and made sure I understood everything there is to know before we began our ride as it was my first time on a horse, they made sure we were both very comfortable and taken care of. Also the views are spectacular and the horses are very well behaved and trained. We will definitely be coming back to ride again with them if we are in the area!
