Guided Horseback Riding

Guided Horseback Riding

Rawhide Ranch offers year-round guided horseback trail rides through our 54 acres of wooded land (weather permitting).  Though our trails do not enter the park, our property is adjacent and the terrain is very similar. These rides are for our ranch guests only. 

 

Trail rides are offered daily beginning at 10 a.m. with the last ride departing at 4 p.m. We attempt to keep this schedule, however, we are at the mercy of those with reservations arriving on time. As an appointment based business activity, a reservation when making your lodging reservation is the only way to guarantee a trail ride.


Cost:

$25 – Ranch Guests



Restrictions:

7 and older, 16 and younger accompanied by one adult per four kids.

1 rider per horse, no double rides.

250 lbs. weight limit.

All riders will step on a scale to verify they meet weight requirements.

Closed toed shoes required; no sandals, flip-flops or crocs.

Must be able to get on and off the horse unassisted with a step stool.

May not participate if you are pregnant.

Minimum of 2 paying participants per tour.



Pony Rides
Pony Rides are a great way to get that “little buckaroo” in on the horseback riding experience. You will place your little one on the back of a horse and lead them around our round pen. The cost is $5 per ride for children 6 and younger.



Cost:
$5 - overnight guest



Badge Work
Rawhide Ranch is certified to instruct Girl Scouts on the proper handling, grooming, tacking and riding to further them towards their badges. The amount of time required will entirely depend on the troop size but a typical troop will be a two hour process; one hour spent in ground lessons followed by a 45 minute trail ride. 



Cost: 
$35 - overnight guests

Reservations

Horseback riding reservations must be called in and secured with a credit card. That card will not be charged unless the reservation is a no show or as result of calls within two hours of ride time to make a change. The full amount of the ride will be charged in that situation. We accept all forms of payment once you have arrived.  You are welcome to pay in cash, check or via credit card.

When you make a reservation, you have reserved your horse and wrangler for that hour of activity. If you are late for your reservation, your time on that horse will be decreased. It is only fair to those who have reserved the next hour of horseback riding.



Cancellation Policy
Reservations may be changed or cancelled up to two hours before your scheduled ride without being charged. If it is within the two hours, the card you used for the deposit will be charged up to the full amount of the ride.

 

Weather Policy-

Please keep in mind that our first priority is the safety of the rider and horse. It is our goal to get the horses up and ready for you to ride, but there are times that the weather or ground conditions are not conducive to riding.  In this situation we will notify you as soon as the determination is made to shut down the trail rides.  You will not be charged for your reservation in this situation. 

 

We welcome you to review and print out our helmet and release of liability waivers for your riding experience.
