Ideally, you should make your reservation at least a day or two prior to the day you’d like to ride. Advance reservations help to ensure that you are able to ride the day and time you’d prefer. However, you can make same-day reservations provided you give us at least 2 hours’ notice to allow us time to get your horses saddled, so they will be ready for you when you get here. We only saddle the horses we need since there’s no need to saddle horses that won’t be ridden. Also, we need to know the ages and sizes of our riders before you get here so that we can saddle the right horses with appropriately sized saddles.
If you make same-day reservations via email, be certain that you receive a confirmation from me, Rachel Handfield, confirming your reservation. If not, you should call (649)245-0707 to ensure that I have seen your reservation. So to avoid having to wait unnecessarily, be sure that we are aware of your reservation. Even then, it takes us 45 minutes to an hour to get you prepared to ride, because we have to have you sign a Release From Liability form, collect the balance of your payment, get helmets on all the children riding on their own and any adults who wish to wear one, give a brief 10-minute riding demonstration, assign your horses, help you up onto your horses, adjust your stirrups, make sure your saddles are tight, and offer the horses water as they hit the trail head.
You’re welcome to bring a camera to capture memories of your tour.
$40 Deposit Required For Reservations.
In order to hold a reservation, your $40 deposit must be received in advance. Deposits are nonrefundable, so please be certain that you wish you ride when you make a reservation. If you need to reschedule for any reason (weather, illness, or even convenience), we’re happy to reschedule your ride for you and apply your deposit to the new reservation provided at least 2 hours’ notice is given. If you fail to show up or are more than 30 minutes late for your scheduled ride, you will forfeit your deposit.
