$35 for a Horseback Trail Ride for Two ($70 Value)
After a 15-minute safety talk in preparation for the ride, the duo spends 45 minutes following an experienced trainer's lead through the farm's verdant landscape. Trail rides are only available Mondays, Fridays, and occasional weekends.
Mimosa Hills Farm
Horses may spend most of their day standing, but at Mimosa Hills Farm, they rarely just stand around. Crosby, the farm's owner, keeps the steeds constantly occupied, making them available casual trail rides across the farm as well as regular riding and driving lessons. But just as with a ten-gallon hat with a built-in spigot never loses its usefulness, the mounts' duties extend beyond the saddle. They also help teach husbandry lessons during educational farm days and provide the natural materials for making horsehair jewelry—a popular activity at Mimosa Hills. Perhaps most importantly, the animals serve as vital companions during the regional shows in which Crosby regularly participates.
