Nothing beats navigating mountain trails on horseback. As with hiking or camping, horseback riding on a trail involves some key dos and don'ts, which are designed to keep riders safe, and protect the nature around us.
1. Riders should match their skill level to the temperament and ability of their horse. Less experienced horses and riders should ride behind more "trail-wise" horses and riders.
2. Travel responsibly and stay on trails and other areas open to horse use.
3. Ride single file to reduce trail damage.
4. Don't cut switchbacks (a turn on a trail).
5. Spread out in open country where there are no trails, rather than following in each other's footsteps. This riding method will disperse impact and avoid creating a new trail.
6. Comply with all signs and respect barriers.
7. go slow and never take a loose horse on the trail.
8. never ride alone. Always ride with a group.
Hello from the Farm,
Experience fall in the mountains from the back of a horse. We have horseback rides leaving daily on the 400 acre farm in Marshall, North Carolina. Fall in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Marshall, North Carolina is a busy time as visitors from all over come in search of vibrant fall color. Locals and repeat color hunters know that there’s more than just one week to catch spectacular foliage. The fall color season begins in September and goes until early November due to the differences in elevation and many species of trees in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Call or email to reserve your ride.
A gift certificate for a friend or love one would be a wonderful gift to give. Stop by for a gift certificate today!
