$50 for One-Hour Guided Trail Ride for Two ($100 Value)
Groups of two gather in 49 Rivers Ranch’s indoor stable to pair up with horses based on size and ability. Ranch hands then teach horse-handling basics, which riders can perfect over the next hour on a leisurely trot around the farm’s 160 acres.
49 Rivers Ranch
At 49 Rivers Ranch, horses leisurely graze on 160 acres of natural-grass pasture as the farm’s two young ranch hands tend to a 30-stall barn and indoor riding arena. Against this idyllic backdrop, owner DJ Dale sparks riders’ passion for equestrianism with Western and English lessons and trail rides through miles of pastoral wilderness. The ranch also hosts birthday parties, inviting revellers young and old to ride horses indoors, interact with cuddly residents from the petting zoo, and enjoy the great outdoors.
