Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and experience the gorgeous outdoors of West Virginia like a real cowboy. Get off the busy roads and see the natural beauty of West Virginia. Even the scenic route isn’t that scenic. And let’s face it, riding a horse is a lot easier than hiking all those miles.
Maybe you’ve been on horseback since before you could walk and just can’t get enough of the graceful creature. Maybe you’ve never touched a horse, but you’ve always dreamed of riding across the vast backcountry or over the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia. Whatever horseback riding experience you are looking for, we have it here in the Mountain State.
