FAQs

How do I schedule a time?

Email your request at least three days prior to your date, to info@hopespringshorsefarm.com. If that date is available, we will put you in touch with the guide that is scheduled for that date and they will work you for the time that works best. Once the time is confirmed, your deposit will be required to hold your spot. If deposit is not received within 24hrs of your ride, your reservation will be cancelled.

What time should we arrive?

Please make sure to arrive at least 10-15 mins before your departure to allow us to pair you with a horse and fit you with a helmet.  Directions can be found on this website!!

Can you do more than walk on the trail ride?

Absolutely not.  For the safety of our riders and horses, walking is strictly enforced.  Please do not ask to “run” the horses.
