Mustang! Trail rides are walk only. Any other gaits are up to the discretion of the guide according to the whole group's riding abilities! Your safety is our priority! Option One - Basic 1 Hour Trail Ride ​ Our one hour trail rides start out with getting you getting matched to your perfect horse as we take you and your family's safety here at Acres Away very serious. Your guide will start you off with a brief and comforting confidence-building 15 minute instructional safety course on riding your horse in our outdoor riding ring. You will then hit the trail at a walk-only pace and enjoy your time in the saddle while going through our beautiful wooded acres! Our experienced guides will answer all questions and help you overcome any anxiety you may have! Price - $45.00 per person Option Two - 1 Hour Trail Ride & Bonfire with S'mores Bar Come enjoy a one hour trail ride (same as option one) and after your ride have some fun making your own s'mores over a rustic bonfire! We will provide you with skewers (or if you're feeling brave just grab a stick!), marshmellows, a variety of chocolate and graham crackers! Price - $55.00 per person ​ Option Three - Trail Ride and Picnic​ After a one hour trail ride, have a delightful picnic at a picturesque spot on our farm. Please view our menu on our website and we will have our favorite local restaurant prepare your delicious sandwiches before your arrival.
