Friendly Pines offers a program trail rides to all of our rental groups. Under the careful supervision and experienced instruction of our riding staff, strings of riders are led on a beautiful trail ride through some of the Prescott National Forest.
Though the trail rides are fun, safety is a paramount concern. Each rider is fitted with a helmet and boots. (All riders must wear long pants). Whether the riders are beginners or experienced, our staff will teach some of the basics in horsemanship. The group may participate in some arena work to insure safety and basic competency.
Riding groups go out in groups of not more than 12 at a time. Because saddling a string takes a long time, we require at least two strings go out, one after the other. Each session will take 90 minutes.
