Trail Challenges on the

Because we so enjoy bringing our Friesians onto trails, we have  built a trail training course right here on our farm! 

We’ve incorporated over 35 natural obstacles that might be found on most any mountain trail as part of our training activities.        


. . . Fire Mountain Trail Training!

As we practice our equitation on these kinds of challenges with our horses, we gain better confidence and become safer on the trail. The skills and trust between horse and rider improves and the time spent together becomes even more enjoyable  ;o)

This facility is a GREAT place for group Challenge practice, Play Days, Clinics and Workshops! And YES we have lots of room for lots of rigs.  You can even stay overnight for weekend events, if you’d like - all you need is to create an event!


If you’re looking for a few hours of riding, you can head out our back gate on to miles of logging roads with lots of grassy spurs and beautiful views.


Definitely worth the trip if you are looking for something fun to do for a day or two with your horses!


All Moonlight Forest Rides are dependent on clear sky conditions!


Folks are welcome to come at 5:00 or anytime thereafter, but must arrive within 30 minutes of estimated departure times.  Estimated departure times will be announced within a few days of each event via e-mail.  Bring a lawn chair for socializing around a campfire as we wait for the moon to rise high enough in the night sky to shed light through the trees as we ride the evening’s adventure ;o)  Rides last approximately 2 hours.


Is there a Full Moon on the Calendar that your group would like to ride under?  Give us a call and we will try to make it happen for you !
