Proper footwear - hard soled shoe or boot with a heel sufficient to prevent your foot from sliding through the stirrups.

The trail pace is set to the level of the least experienced rider, walking the entire ride if need be, more experienced riders may jog & lope where permitted, not everyone is at the same level. Safety 1st!


You are in control of the horse you are riding and it will go where you ask it to, if you do not take control, it will choose its own way(generally to grass). Remember, horses are flight animals, meaning if startled, they can run first, ask questions later! Always pay attention to your surroundings on a horse! Deer, turkeys and other wildlife are seen on our trail rides often so keep an eye open!


You can learn to ride, drive or both on Windsong horses of varying experience levels. 

Lessons available for Horse Handling, Care, Training, Western Riding, or Learning to Drive horses and more!


Our various Carriages, Buggies or Hay Wagon depending on how many people you  have in mind, it's a great alternative if you are unable to ride -- Please ask if interested!
