Stopover Ride

For those that want a little extra time in the saddle we’re happy to offer an extended ride with a stopover for lunch along the Stony Creek. These rides typically last about two and a half hours.

Cattle Sorting

Try your hand at moving cattle around obstacles, sorting them by color or  number and getting them in the proper pen. Get a true cowboy experience while staying safely within the Arena.

River Crossing

This is for experienced riders and offers something found nowhere else in the Northeast. Riders will cross the Hudson River and traverse some of the most beautiful trails in the Adirondack Park.

This ride is only available when nature permits so call ahead to reserve your place.

Riding Lessons

Lessons offer the less experienced riders the opportunity to not miss out  on all the different rides the ranch has to offer.
