Overview

We offer specialty trail rides year round by reservation. Three are offered all year, seasonally we have ice cream rides in the summer in Casco, sunset rides in the fall in Casco and beach rides in the winter on Popham or OOB. We offer carriage tours in Freeport and Old Orchard seasonally as well. Riding with your own horse here at the farm is a great option too, on 5,000 acres of Jugtown Forest land.

Canters are not guaranteed on our rides, this is expressly written in the descriptions. All is by guide's discretion. Two guides can split a ride if it is determined that there is a difference in abilities. You were not signed up for a beginner ride,...More

We tried to help you take pictures after the ride with your 15 month old but you seemed upset when we untied the pony and turned him so you could get his face in the picture and walked away. I only asked that you wait...More

Nice trail ride through the woods and fields of this farm's property. Christine was our guide. It seems they take the safety of their operation very seriously. We signed a waiver, were helmeted and instructed how to rein. The horses were docile and well-behaved. There...More
