Equestrians 12 years and older can learn the basics of horse care, such as grooming and how to interpret a pony's sideways glance, and then take to the trails for a relaxing, hour-long ride. Afterward, those selecting a dinner option will climb aboard for a hayride through the pastoral countryside, arriving at a roaring campfire for a tasty meal. Enjoy a choice of chicken or steak along with veggie kebabs. Kids can opt for pigs in a blanket. Meals are rounded out with baked potatoes, roasted corn, baked beans, and corn muffins. Guests young and old can then top off dinners with sweet s'mores warmed by the light of the fire. Options that include dinner last between three and four hours.
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.
