Horseback Riding: Outdoor Fun in Vermont

On a trip to our gorgeous area of Vermont you will find a
myriad of things to do no matter what you enjoy. There are fantastic
restaurants to try, concerts to take in, shops and galleries to take in and
then you have all of the outdoor adventures such as biking, hiking, fly
fishing, kayaking, swimming, and more. One activity that may be right up your
alley and provide a relaxing day out is some horseback riding nearby.
Close to our inn we have several stables that offer
horseback riding services. Here in central Vermont we are surrounded by the
beautiful rolling hills of the Champlain Valley and the majestic Green
Mountains so any ride outdoors will be a truly scenic adventure.
If you are a beginner and would like to boost your
confidence on a horse before taking on a longer trail ride, we suggest visiting
Salisbury Station
Stable. Owner Ellie Bishop offers half hour or one-hour lessons to the
first time rider or even advanced riders. Learn riding techniques and how to
brush and tack your own horse. About 45-minutes away from us is the Mountain TopEquestrian Center.  They offer
several different trail rides ranging from 1 hour to 3 hours with a picnic
lunch depending on your level of experience. They also have TGIF Fun Rides and
Sundays in the Saddle, both of which are one hour rides at only $35 per person.
Last we want to tell you about Pond Hill Ranch—a
wonderful ranch open seven days a week and only 40 minutes away from our inn.
This 2000-acre ranch in the heart of the mountains offers some fantastic
scenery for a relaxing trail ride. They accommodate and level of experience and
