After allowing trail riders the chance to get acquainted with horses and reviewing the basics of starting, stopping, and steering, guides embark on trail rides with small groups between 2 and 12 people. During the one-on-one lessons, instructors can teach a choice of English or Western riding styles, and tailor instruction to individual skill level.<p>

Spring Valley Equestrian Center

Spring Valley Equestrian Center has been family owned for four decades. Current owners Marie Cotton and Chuck McWhirter spearhead instruction in both English and Western horseback-riding techniques on the scenic ranch, which abuts the Appalachian Trail Ridge. A large indoor arena complements the center's three riding rings, allowing horses to gallop comfortably throughout the year and eliminating the need for them to fly south for the winter. Spring Valley’s saddle shop allows equines to suit up onsite. In addition to group and private lessons, the center hosts summer horsemanship camps that include a week of lessons and conclude with a student horse show.

Customer Reviews

Very nice people and great horses. We took a ride through the woods which was nice, but it would have been nice to go along their fields as well. The guide was very sweet and helpful. Great prices for what you get.
