Q:

Hi there, I am an experienced horseback rider, I used to own my own horse and I took dressage and jumping lessons for many years as a teenager. Nowadays, I rent a horse here and there, usually, when I am on vacation. I might be a little rusty because it has been a few years but I enjoy gallopping through the fields and I love to jump. I would love getting back on the back of a horse, Arabian horses are my favorites. Would this offer be right for me?

A:

This deal might be a bit too amateur for you because it is with an instructor and more geared to beginners and intermediates. Galloping and jumping are more advanced than this offer.

Q:

Does the lesson instructor go with us on the trail ride or are you allowed to go solo? My daughter (19) and I are experienced riders. Thanks!

A:

Hi Victoria, Our insurance policy requires that an instructor go on the Trailride. Riding the trails without an instructor is considered a "horse rental" and requires very expensive liability insurance that many farms can't afford.

Q:

What is the youngest age for which you would recommend this adventure?

Caroline S.  asked on  Sep 7, 2012

A:

In general I would say 12 but younger children who take weekly riding lessons can sometimes participate. We do offer lessons, pony rides and activities for younger children, you can learn about them at www.fruitionfarm.com

Q:

I have never gone horse back riding but would love to try it. Please advise if this is something a newbie would enjoy and how the ride is accompanied. Melinda Stankosky

Melinda S.  asked on  Sep 7, 2012

A:

Hi Melinda, I think it would. We begin on the ground by teaching you about horse psychology, behavior and communication while we groom your horse with you and put the equipment on. Then we have a lesson on your horse in the arena to get comfortable walking, stopping and turning. When you are ready, we head out on the trail. Sometimes a first time rider won't feel comfortable going on the trail and in that case we can just continue to ride in the arena. We want you to have a fun, safe, relaxing experience so we're happy to take things slow as needed.

Q:

Is there an age limit? I'm thinking of my grandchildren, ages 6 and 8. Also, what about older folks--grandparents?

Nancy M.  asked on  Sep 7, 2012

A:

6 and 8 would be too little for a Trailride but I would recommend a Trottin' Tots Stable Tour - we take them around the farm to meet the animals, then groom a horse and feed treats, followed by a short beginner ride in the arena.

Q:

My son, Zachary Kerr, is 10 years old can we do this together or is there a minimum age. He has taken lessons with you on prior occasions.

John S.  asked on  Sep 7, 2012

A:

Hi, in general we recommend kids 12 and up simply because younger/smaller kids sometimes struggle to pull a horse's head up on the trail if their horse tries to stop and eat grass. Having said that, a younger rider with experience often does just fine. Knowing Zachary I think it would be something you could do together. Looking forward to seeing you again, Lissa
