Trail Riding

Interested in going trail riding, but not looking for an overnight stay? If you would like to get a taste of trail riding, we offer guided daily and hourly trail riding by appointment.  Unlike most traditional horse barns that have limited trails and horses, we have multiple trails for customized rides and cater to all experience levels. We have trails that are suitable for the beginner rider as well as those more advanced. Our vast trail riding network ranges from a mixture of pine forests and rolling hardwood forests with flowing creeks to open fields with historic tobacco barns. We enjoy taking people horseback riding whether it be for the first time or seasoned rider. If you have never ridden before, it’s not too late to try!

The rates listed below are for guests not staying at the ranch and do not include meals or lodging unless otherwise stated. For those of you that would be interested in an overnight stay at the ranch, please see our all-inclusive horseback riding packages.   All riding is by appointment only! Please call (434)-517-0888 for reservations. Our office hours are from 9:00 AM- 7:00 PM EST.
