Ten minutes from the bustle of Atlanta, hummingbirds and dragonflies buzz around gardens, and horses crunch leaves under their hooves as they amble down dirt-covered trails leading to a private pond. Fruition Farm beckons visitors to relax at this idyllic refuge, whether by swaying on the porch swing with a book in hand or trapping sleepy friends in a hammock draped between two trees.

Communing with nature is reflected in the farm's approach to horseback riding—natural horsemanship, which fosters a special rapport between equestrians and steeds based on respect and trust, motivating horses to obey commands without riders threatening to expose their secret pasts as cows. This philosophy encompasses all activities at Fruition, from lessons and camps to weekend retreats and creative excursions such as moonlight rides and Tea on Tuesdays, which pairs laid-back rides with a catered lunch at the farmhouse.

Horseplay Enterprises galloped into existence in 2011 under the guidance of founder Marion Berry. With gushing pride in their family of animals, Marion and his own family of humans invite visitors of all ages to engage their inner explorers during horse-related adventures. Nature trail rides, for instance, explore the facility’s surrounding scenery. Each ride begins with a bit of training, which ensures riders remain safe and know how to roll up their horse’s windows should it start to rain. Marion and his staff also train the next generation of competitive riders with lessons in varying riding styles, and offer up a celebratory whinny with appearances at birthdays and parties.
