Horseback & Pony Rides

Horseback Rides

We offer the only guided Horseback Trail Rides in the Mt. Hood National Forest. Explore the backcountry on miles of trails through old growth forest and open alpine meadows. Incredible views abound as you saddle up for a spectacular adventure through the Cascade mountain range.

Our guides service a variety of well-trained horses in order to get you into the outback. They’ll ensure the saddles, stirrups and all equipment is installed properly for each rider for an enjoyable experience. Whether you’re out to ride solo, with your significant other, or with the whole family, our guides will ensure you’ll have an amazing journey along the way!

For longer than 30 minute rides, larger groups and overnight trips, please notify us in advance so custom arrangements can be made for your specific journey. Happy Trails!
