Group Tours Information
Trail Rides are offered April through November. Our professionally trained staff will guide you through miles of trails, rolling hills and pastures. Mounted ride times last for approximately one and a half hours long.
Buffalo Run Farm offers several beginner safe horses that will allow even the most inexperienced rider confidence. Riders will be coached on basic safety and riding position in preparation for the ride. More advanced rides and mounts are offered for a more experienced rider or group.
Riding lessons are offered for riders of all ages and skill levels at Buffalo Run Farm!
For beginners just getting into horses and riding, the first half of each lesson consists of horsemanship training including horse safety, handling and care. Each student will learn how to safely brush and tack-up a horse. The second half will be riding on one of our school horses. If it's your first time to the farm, please plan to arrive 10-15 minute prior to the start of your lesson.
For students that demonstrate independence in care and preparation of their lesson mount, as much as 60 minutes is spent riding. For more independent students, you may arrive 20-30 minutes prior to the start of your lesson in order to get your horse ready and to maximize your time for learning in the saddle.
We also offer group lessons. In order to be considered for group lessons, riders must demonstrate a beginning level of independence and safety in the saddle before participating in group lessons. Individuals are grouped into lessons according to ability and common riding goals. Please speak to your instructor if you are interested in a group lesson!
