Your Day

Join us for a day of riding and wine tasting. Start with a lovely drive upstate to the stables, which sit on hundreds of wooded acres and boast some of the best riding trails in the Northeast. After a short safety briefing, get acquainted with your horse. The lively but well-mannered horses have names like Uno, Dos and Tres. We will saddle up, then ride for 1.5 hours through fields and woods with an experienced wrangler. The land is a wonderful mix of rocky terrain, hills and some narrow paths. Next, we will drive to a beautiful vineyard in the Hudson Valley for a wine tasting. Enjoy a sample of reds and whites along with some of the best hard ciders in America. We'll listen to the winery's live acoustic music while enjoying local foods. A stroll through the orchard grounds is a great finish to the day.

Perfect for:  New horseback riders, experienced riders looking for a relaxing day

Note: Weight limit for horseback riding is 225 lbs. Anyone who exceeds the limit and would like to attend will be able to explore the stables and interact with horses during the ride.

Weather

Weather conditions can be quite different from the city in the mountainous regions we visit. Temperatures can be quite cooler as we head north or to higher elevations. Keep your eyes out for an email from our team a few days in advance of your trip. That email will provide updated weather conditions and will alert you to anything additional you should put in your pack to prepare. We head outside in any weather, as long as we know it's safe, and we don't let a little rain or wind ruin a chance for an adventure. You can contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions about preparing for trail conditions.
