During each guided ride, private groups climb aboard their mounts to explore verdant trails that wind through the forest and countryside surrounding the stables. The seasoned guide sets the pace of each excursion to suit each group’s level of riding experience. Each horse is saddled up Western style, though riders accustomed to the English or Australian styles of riding can request those upon registration.
For more than 25 years, JuRo Stables’ husband-and-wife owners—Sara and Roger West, riding enthusiasts with backgrounds in the entertainment industry—have been instilling equestrian ardor in their students with guided trail rides and horseback-riding lessons. Dedicated to granting visitors of all ages and experience levels a chance to saddle up, the dynamic duo maintains a fleet of friendly horses that vary in size and temperament to ensure that each rider is paired with a suitably matched steed. Sage guides lead trail rides around the scenic landscapes surrounding the stables, winding trails across creeks, ruins of old 19th-century homesteads, and wagon wheels carelessly left behind by litterbug pioneers. A cadre of expert instructors imparts their horse sense upon students during group and private lessons, and outdoor enthusiasts can continue to commune with nature during post-lesson revelries amid onsite primitive camping and cooking facilities.
