Horse Trail Rides

Enjoy fresh air and breath taking scenery when you come horseback riding on the trails at Charmingfare Farm. All levels of trail riding ability are encouraged to come and ride on a horse.

Gentle Horses and Great Trails
First time rider? No worries!

Before heading out onto the trails all riders are given the opportunity to get acquainted with their horse. During this time our trail guides makes sure every rider is comfortable, confident and prepared for the trails.

Our picturesque trail rides pass through pasture meadows with grazing livestock, travel along old logging roads into the forest far away from the modern world. Once in the forest riders have spotted native coyotes, fox and wild turkeys; some guests have even been fortunate enough to see a moose. Be sure to bring a camera.
