Horesback Riding

Horseback Riding with Outdoor Rec. is a great way to try out horse riding for the first time or to enjoy riding again.  Our trips are designed for a group of 10-15 people, and require no previous experience. Each trip is led by Outdoor Rec. Trip Coordinators who are experienced in leading trips. Any instruction pertinent to the activity will be provided by the horse riding guides on site.  Their tip is included in the price of the trip.
