Many of our fall
trails have edible berries that we can stop and pick. These
include, wild raspberries, huckleberries, blueberries, elderberries,
wild strawberries, service berries, thimbleberries, and many,
many more. Our guides know which ones are "for-sure" safe,
and they will recommend them. If they are "not sure"
they'll recommend that you wait!
Our fall rides usually encounter many unique
birds. The ducks and geese are flocking together, getting ready for the
flight south. The trumpeter swan, with their (8) foot wingspans
are starting to associate with each other. (they're loners in the
spring and summer) The male rocky mountain blue birds are showing of
f their exquisite beauty. The hairy woodpeckers are
working on the trees as we pass. A huge, magnificent, bald
eagle can always be found in one of the old dead trees
overlooking the creek that flows down through the south pasture.
Bring your camera and
we will promise you some great pictures. The guides
will be happy to take pictures of you in these beautiful
surroundings. We encourage our guests to e-mail pictures
and testimonies back to us. We often upload our
guest's pictures on FACEBOOK
as well as our <Testimony>
Some of them are so good we just leave them there!
The horses used on
our fall rides are very gentle; in many cases they are middle aged,
former professional horses that have spent their younger years
in rodeo competition! We are proud of them! These are
horses that do not spook when the moose jumps out of the creek or the
pine hen flies up beneath their hooves. At the same time,
these are not fat, "lazy" horses that require constant prodding.
We think we have the greatest string of horses in the country!
Our saddles (like
our horses) are comfortable! They are not new, but by the same
token they are not old. Most of them have cushion seats and are
well broke in. (No one likes riding a new saddle or
breaking in a new pair of boots)
All of our guests are required to use a mounting block when mounting
their horse at the barn. There are three reasons for this: First,
it's easier on the horse. Second, it's easier on the rider.
Third, the seasoned rider does not have to be embarrassed by the fact
that he or she can no longer swing up on the saddle with the
smooth, elegant, flowing motion of a few years ago.
