Horsin Around Riding Ranch
Arrive at the farm and help brush and tack your horse. Receive a mini lesson on riding your horse. Ride through some real back trails, along the railway bed, and hay fields. Stop for lunch at the Crowe River - Callaghan Rapids.Wine, a selection of fresh fruits & cheese, salad and mount up and continue our ride back to the farm.
We consider ourselves to be very fortunate to own such an amazing piece of property. Our 140 acres boasts 3 ponds, hay fields, cedar, pine and hardwood bushes as well as the Trans Canada Trail running right through the middle of it all! We back onto 800 acres of land owned by the Crowe Valley Conservation Authority and we are only a few minutes away from the most picturesque waterfalls at Callaghan Rapids. (We know there are caves you can explore down there as well, but have yet to find them ourselves...; This is a wonderful spot for families to bring their children or a to have a romantic picnic on a secluded rock on the water. (We recommend bringing water shoes).
Our trail rides will wind you around our pine forest, and whisk you away from reality when we take a short stroll through our cedar and hardwood bush. Let the wind play in your face when we travel through our hay fields and along the Trans Canada Trail. We hope you will bring your camera to capture this once in a lifetime moment. WE HAVE JUST ADDED 3 NEW TRAILS THROUGH OUR HARDWOOD BUSH!
Our horses are family members first and many of them have been with us 8 to 21 years now. We NEVER farm our horses out over the winter months, as some riding stables do, to save on feed costs so we know everthing about every one of them.
We also only use ORTHOFLEX (Ortho flex) saddles on our horses. These are orthopedic saddles that conform to our horses backs ensuring a pleasurable ride for them as well. We are certain you won't mind the thick memory foam in the seats either!
Available Rides: - 2.8 miles $35 per person (approx. 1hr)- 3.3 miles $40 per person (approx. 1.5hrs)
These meat birds are only available for Thanksgiving "fresh" and then as available "frozen" afterwards. Our turkeys are uncertified - organic, raised on pasture with some grain. We do not use any type of hormone, steroid or medicated foods. We strive to have the best foods available for our family and share our same standards with others. All turkeys must be pre-ordered if you would like them fresh and not frozen. They will be available the fall.
