TIPS TO SCHEDULING TRAIL RIDES If you have 1 or 2 people:
The earliest you can call is 9:30 the SUNDAY BEFORE YOU WANT TO RIDE. This is the earliest time you may call. For example, if you want to ride NEXT Sunday, you must call THIS Sunday at 9:30. If you have 3-6 people:
When you have this many people you are considered a group. I recommend scheduling at least 4 weeks in advance. To book this many people you must call in and reserve and then either send in a check or come by with a cash or check to make a deposit of half the amount. This is to reserve your spot. If it rains you will be given the option to ride in our indoor arena or reschedule.
DO NOT SCHEDULE TRAIL RIDES THROUGH VOICE MESSAGES! TALK TO AN EMPLOYEE ON THE PHONE AT 301-622-2424
We book up extremely fast, especially in the fall. Please be patient, if we could accommodate 100 people a weekend we would! We only send out small groups of people because we only send horses out on the trail that we feel are 100% safe with beginner riders.
