The two hour ride is for those who like to spend more time in the saddle. This ride starts out along the same scenic trails as our “one hour ride” and then goes up further into the hills. Be sure to bring your camera as the scenery is spectacular!

The three hour horseback ride is our most popular ride. We leave the stables and ride over the hilltops for approximately an hour. We then take an hour break at the Little Pine Gem Mine to allow our guests to dig in the tailings. After one hour, we mount again and follow the trail to up to the high mountain. From there, you can see Big Ball Mountain and Tennessee. Finally, the trail winds back down to the stables.
*private rides for $20 extra per person
We offer private lessons at different times of the year. Please call for availability and more information.
I would also recommend the 3 hour tour. Trails gave you plenty of different types of terrain but nothing too challenging. My 8 yo daughter had no problem on her own and was matched well with the horse as was I. We unfortunately could not go into the gem mine but there are still plenty of garnet in the tailings around mine. The horses seemed to be well taken care of and they seems to be pretty organized there. - Matthew S.
