Fairwinds Farm trail rides on quiet, dependable horses are especially designed for you! We give comforting, specific instruction and a confidence-building introductory ride in our ring for 15 minutes before going on the 45 minute trail ride through woods and fields. Our experienced guides will answer all questions and help you overcome any anxiety you may have!

CHILDREN MUST BE AT LEAST 8 YEARS OF AGE to go on the trail, but we offer pony rides for our younger riders.
