Horseback Riding

Packard Point Ranch is proud to offer a wide variety of equestrian experiences. From private lessons in our indoor and outdoor arenas, to experiencing an evening riding on the trail with your closest friends and family, our well-trained horses and experienced guides will ensure a natural horsemanship experience that you will not soon forget. Our expanse of private trails, once in a lifetime views, and kind horses truly offer a unique equine experience like nothing else. Join us in enjoying the river valley in one of our favorite ways – on horseback!

We strive for an environment centered around community and building relationships with our guests. Correspondingly, our trail rides can accommodate small groups of up to four guests.Each trail ride will include a short introduction to riding in our arena before entering the trail.

To help us create the best possible horse + rider pair, we ask that each rider please provide their riding experience, height and weight, and abide by our weight limit of 240 lbs. Each rider will be required to sign a safety waiver before handling or riding horses.
