If you've dreamed of playing Cowboy for real, you've come to the right place


Ever thought of horseback trail riding in scenic Nova-Scotia? Want a truly fantastic family activity?

Saddle-up for a horseback trail ride whether solo, as a group or as a family (no horse-riding experience is needed) and enjoy year-round 1,5 hour excursions exploring the neighbouring trails, through the forests and wilderness! You can go on different longer excursions during the spring, summer and early fall months. Some of them will allow you and your family to enjoy a lunch along the way, or S’mores sitting by a glorious campfire after an enchanting evening horse-ride along the trail!

Did you know that as you explore the trails during your excursion, you’ll also reap the benefits of horseback riding such as: enhanced muscle toning and strengthening, increased self-confidence and self-esteem, promotion of independence, increased concentration and patience, and more! As you enjoy a walking-paced horse-ride through the Nova-Scotian countryside, feel your busy-life worries evaporate and replenish while making fond memories!

Check our information about our rides, our horses, recommended clothing, what to bring, waivers, cancellations, and much  more in our FAQ section or  Contact us with any questions, we’ll be happy to help!
