Group Outings

CELEBRATE!  LEARN!  EXPERIENCE!

Group outings are educational experiences that will help build everyone's confidence around horses. These are great for Boy/Girl Scouts, school groups, birthday celebrations, youth groups or family reunions! 

We break our group outings down depending on size and your interest! Bring a small (<10 people) or large (>10 people) group. Don't worry about your groups skill level; we accomidate these outings to the least experienced person! 

All Group Outings must be individually scheduled. We suggest contacting us at MINIMUM of a month in advance to book an outing. Outings that include riding are significantly limited in availability (especially in Summer), so for these outings we recommend contacting us via email ASAP!
