Horse sense, n.: Stable thinking.
Horseback Riding 101
- As with bicycle riding, helmets can be worn on riding trails. Remember to bring your own, if you are more comfortable wearing one.
- If you’re saddled up waiting for your group to hop on, please don’t keep kicking your horse to start the ride before it’s time. That’s gotta hurt!
- Hold on:)
- Riding horse trails is a peaceful experience, please try to be considerate and don’t raise your voice unless there is an emergency.
- If you’re passing another rider on the trail, let them know.
- Pay attention to the trail. Take it easy around low hanging trees and sharp corners.
- Enjoy the beautiful surroundings by disposing of trash in the proper place. The only thing that you should leave behind are hoof prints.
No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle. ~Winston Churchill

Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people. ~W.C. Fields
So you want to buy a horse or pony…it’s easy to get carried away looking into those big brown eyes!
Besides the financial side of taking care of a horse…there are many things that you need to be aware of before you take the plunge into the world of horse ownership.
We don’t want to burst your bubble…we love taking care of our horses but we’ve been doing it for a long, long time.
Maybe, you should just make a reservation for a trail ride and keep it simple!
If the world was truly a rational place, men would ride sidesaddle. ~Rita Mae Brown
Paideia Academy’s third grade had an amazing time riding the horse trails at River Valley Ranch! A few days later, we were excited to receive a packet of thank you letters from (twenty some) third graders.
What a hoot! We’re so glad that they had a good time and look forward to seeing everyone again…real soon!
Thanks Paideia Academy 3rd Grade!
You’re very welcome!
We're so glad you had fun, Joey!
