Questions & Answers

Do I have to wear a helmet?

Helmets are mandatory and we provide them. If availalbe you can also bring your own bike helmet.

Is there a weight limit ?

Our 2 draft horses carry up to 275lbs. Riders over 250lbs should choose our shorter 1h rides.

Do I have to sign a waiver ?

Yes ! You find our waiver to download below. You can also sign it easily when you arrive. For persons under 19y a parent or guardian must sign on behalf.

How far in advance do I have to reserve ?

In spring and fall 1-2 days ahead of time is fine. During the summer months we recommend at least 1 week.

Do you close for the season in winter ?

We are open all year long. With icy conditions on the trails we have to pause rides.

What should I wear ?

Please wear long pants as well as sturdy footwear, if possible with a small heel. Depending on the weather it is useful to bring a warm jacket.

Can I bring my camera with me ?

Sure - just make sure it is in a secure pocket ! We try to make at least one photo stop.

Do you go out if the weather turns bad ?

We go out in all conditions except when it is too dangerous to ride: Thunderstorms and strong winds. We inform you ahead of time about conditions.

Do you sell food & drinks ?

Sorry no

What payments do you accept ?

We take debit cards, credit cards, cheques, cash and e-transfers. Payment after the ride.

Can I bring my own saddle ?

We have all our saddles measured and fitted to our horses and to avoid sour backs and bruises we only use our saddles.

Can I ride alone ?

Our insurance requires a guide with you at any time.

Do you ride english or western ?

Mainly western, but we have tack for both styles.

Do you ride over the Myra Canyon trestles ?

It is 1.5h uphill to get there and impossible to ride over the old train bridges - they have dangerous gaps left and right. So we don’t offer that at all.

Are there any packages with accommodation ?

Ranch guests get 10% discount on our classic and kids rides. For multiple rides while staying with us we always offer individual prices.

Can I ride with my kid on one horse ?

Our insurance makes a clear no to that, sorry !

Can I bring my dog with me ?

Sorry no, again an insurance requirement to not allow pets.

What is nearby ?

10 min driving distance above us is the west parking lot of the Myra Canyon. 2 min below is an adventure park. 1min away are trail heads.
