GETTING TO THE STABLES
The stables are about 30 minutes from River Mountain along scenic, country roads. It is a gorgeous drive (with no gas stations or services along the route). If leaving from River Mountain, please leave 45 minutes before the trail ride to have enough time to settle in.
Each ride can accommodate a max of 8 guests. For larger groups, we can split into two groups during the offered trail ride times — one group would relax at the stables while the other group rides.
Upon registering, please provide us with guest age, height, and weight so Horseplay may prep the horses. We will confirm the final trail ride time upon booking, based on availability and the number of guests in your group. Please send this information to us via firstname.lastname@example.org or via text at (814) 259-6580.
Riders must be 8 years old or older. Riders under 13 must have a participating adult with them. Parents please supervise children closely. If a child starts crying or is uncomfortable once in the saddle, we will not proceed to the trail and may have to end the ride early for safety. If your child is uncomfortable, then the horses and other guests will be uncomfortable as well.
Due to the preparation of each horse for a ride and limited availability, horseback riding is non-refundable and non-exchangeable for another time or date. Thank you for your understanding! Reservations must be made at least 48 hours in advance to allow time to prepare each horse.
