HORSEBACK TRAIL RIDES

[ABOUT THE RIDE  -  RESERVATIONS & RIDING  -  RULES OF THE TRAIL & RIDING SAFETY]
(Please read all text below)


Enjoy a guided horseback trail ride through the historic wooded acres at the Castle In The Clouds beautiful mountaintop estate in Moultonborough, New Hampshire. Get away from the stress of life and relax with a quiet, peaceful, calm, walking trail ride and bond with your horse. Our beautiful trail ride takes you by Shannon Pond, through wooded trails, fields with amazing views of Lake Winnipesaukee and along Shannon Brook with small waterfalls.  Trail rides are approximately 1 hr long and are a relaxing walk only (no trotting or cantering - no exceptions!)

Our gentle horses are good for riders of all levels. We will match riders with a horse that will accommodate their riding ability, no experience necessary.  We provide a nice loading platform to mount and dismount your horse.


Your trail guide will give you detailed instructions on riding and the trail before you depart. This loading platform is where you
mount/dismount your horse.

RULES OF THE TRAIL & RIDING SAFETY:
Trail rides are guided walk only (no trotting or cantering - no exceptions!).
 Helmets will be provided to all riders.
1 rider per horse (no double riding with children)
Riders must stay in line and in the order we start with and stay single file (no passing).  We recommend leaving a horse length or two between horses.
  Please wear a good shoe when riding (no sandals or flip flops).  We suggest something with a slight heel like a hiking type shoe or sneaker with some tread over flat bottom shoes.
  Basic riding tips - keep your reins in your hands at all times, relax, keep the ball of your foot in the stirrup and your heels down for good balance and keep your weight in your feet evenly. 
Bring your camera.  A strap to go around your neck while riding is handy! We can also photograph you and your friends/family on your horses when you go out or get back.
When you get back to the barn we have a treat you can give your horse to tell him/her Thank You!
