I offer engaging and peaceful trail rides through the enchantingly beautiful forests just outside of Asheville, NC. At the barn, I will have snacks and sparkling water (alcohol only offered on the weekends). I offer mindful trail rides, focusing on breath, posture, and fun! I can accommodate beginner to advanced riders. I offer a holistic barn that places safety first for both horses and humans. *The rides are for riders of varied abilities, booking 4 to 6 riders. Rides are two hours from start to finish, with about 90 minutes in the saddle. We begin the experience by meeting and learning about our horses, groundwork and leading them to the trail which offers you time to connect and establish leadership with your horse before riding them. *This is an active experience and physically demanding at times. My weight limit for riding is 250 but you do need to be able to mount a horse without a mounting block.
I remember falling in love with horses at the age of 3. Growing up I would take riding lessons whenever I could, spent most of my time dreaming of horses, reading about horses, talking about horses; begging for a horse. As a teenager I finally had my own horse! My most treasured memories of this age are of riding through forest and field. Before college I worked for Teton National Park leading guided trail rides. Five years ago I created my career combining my passions for the outdoors, horses, travel, people, children and animals. I still ride, dream and talk about horses and beg for more.

We will ride through the beautiful and historic area of Barnardsville off of Dillingham Road. The Appalachian farm trail ride meanders along the beautiful bold Ivy River, around beautiful pastures and up through the hilly mountain where you will experience beautiful views of the farm and pasture land below. You can also book a historic farm house that overlooks the pasture where my horses reside during your stay https://abnb.me/PEsGuKBn33
