For the best trail rides in New Hampshire, both the summer and winter locations of High Meadows Farms offer beautiful trails through the woods. The summer location provides spectacular views of the White Mountains and rolling grass pastures from the middle of June through Columbus Day Weekend. The winter barn contains endless trails into the woods, past small streams, over bridges, and through acres of beautiful scenery. All trails are wide and well maintained and can be accessed throughout most of the year (some winter conditions may prohibit safe traveling).
Reservations are required! Please call Sue in advance at 603-539-6052.*
Open 7 days a week from September – June. Due to the busy summer camp program there will be no trail rides from June 20 – August 20th.
All Ages Welcome!
I have a very strict 200 lb. weight limit. No exceptions! These are my show horses and I care very much about them so I really have to protect their backs. Please be considerate.
The Ultimate Trail Ride
Total Time = Approximately 1.5 hours but plan to be here for 2 hours.
$85.00 per person
This is the perfect ride for both the first time rider and the more experienced rider. If you are looking for something more than just a single-file walk in the woods, this is the ride for you! Your adventure will begin by spending some time with your horse on the ground before you ride. You will learn how to groom and tack-up your horse to prepare him for your time together. (This gives both you and your horse the opportunity to get to know each other first.)
You will then spend some time in the arena learning the basics of riding to ensure you feel safe and in control of your horse before you head out on the trails. You will learn how to steer over and around small obstacles and how to trot. While on the trail you do not need to walk in a single file line, you can walk side by side and pass each other and we will do some trotting. When you return from you excursion on the trails you will can spend some additional time back in the arena practicing your riding skills. Your ride will come to an end by dismounting, untacking your horse, feeding them treats and returning them to their stall or pasture.
*Note: When making reservations, the most advanced notice gives you the best options. Will do our best to accommodate any situation, but please make sure you call in advance so we can serve you properly.
All Trail rides are custom designed to meet each person’s/groups individual needs. So whether you have previous riding experience and want to come do some fun riding, or if this is your first experience on a horse and you’re feeling nervous, this is the place for you! Everyone is welcome! This is an amazing experience like no other! Please feel free to call me (Sue) for additional information. I would love to talk to you! 603-539-6052.
If you would like to request your own “private ride,” for only your personal group, arrangements can be made for an additional fee of $500.00 on top of the regular fee $85.00 per person. Please contact Sue for additional information at 603-539-6052.
Finally, during summer camp season trail rides are not available. On Sundays please call for exceptions, since we are normally at horse shows from June – August. Times are based on your availability.
We understand that there are times when you may need to reschedule due to appointments, or if an emergency comes up. If you cannot keep your scheduled lesson time, please notify us immediately. If you are not able to provide us with 24-hour notice, you will forfeit your lesson and fee. If you are able to provide 24-hour notice, you may schedule a make-up lesson. In the event of inclement weather or instructor cancellation, lessons will be rescheduled with no penalty. Canceling without sufficient notice disrupts the entire flow of the program; horses have been reserved specifically for your lesson time, arena time/space has been scheduled for you, and an instructor has also made themselves completely available to you for that specific time. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we continue to try to run a sustainable program.
Payment by cash or Venmo ONLY
