Winding Creek Stables

Guided Trail Rides!

What better way to enjoy the outdoors, miles of trail, and serene settings, than on the back of a horse? Come join us for guided trail rides and get to know our amazing horses! Trail rides range in difficulty, and horses and tours will be matched to best maximize your riding experience! Trail riding takes a lot of good hand, eye coordination, thinking ahead, balance and the ability to handle your horse in any situation. To trail ride, the rider does not have to be a seasoned equestrian, but some trails will require previous riding experience. Winding Creek Stables  and its staff, want a safe and enjoyable time spent with us, and will insure that the rider is prepared for their riding experience. All rides will have a Winding Creek Guide, to insure safety for all.
