Come visit Hidden Springs Farm, nestled in the Quiet Corner and enjoy a relaxing trail ride with our calm and happy horses. You'll learn how to connect with the horses while taking in gorgeous scenery through the Natchaug State Forest. The trail ride can take anywhere from 30 minutes-2 hours, depending on your skill level and how long you want to go. We start with tacking the horses up, brushing them and introducing them to you so you can get to know your ride. In order to enjoy this ride to the fullest, we ask that you remain calm and ask plenty of questions! Our horses love taking new people for rides and showing off the beauty that is Connecticut. On the trail ride you'll witness tons of wildlife at a relaxed pace. Make sure you bring your appreciation for nature!
I am a horse enthusiast, running a rescue and thoroughbred farm in the Last Green Valley of Connecticut. I've been taking in horses for 15 years and own a variety of rescues that currently enjoy the rolling green hills of Connecticut. I love helping horses who are in troubled homes and giving them a fun job to do all while helping them learn how to trust people again.
Waters are included
Helmets are available for rental with an additional fee.
While we are always taking different routes for variety, some special places you'll see on the trail ride includes the Christmas forest, a serene reservoir, fall foliage, a long winding dirt road shaded by tall pine trees, soft green meadows and picturesque New England homes. These are just some of the beautiful things you'll see on the ride.
Depending on the weather, please bring appropriate outerwear. Always bring an extra coat or a sweater as we trail ride outside and it can be chilly! Gloves are also a must in cold weather. Snacks are not provided, but waters are!
