Horseback riding vacations offer families the kind of active, challenging adventure which children and adults can share and will remember with pleasure. It is a bonding experience for all. Like so many other sports, riding is something children can learn easily and well, but success requires practice, dedication and physical fitness. The rewards are proportional to the effort invested. Young children would be best advised to visit a stationary program (the Bitterroot Ranch, Los Potreros, and Horizon Ranch are some examples) to perfect their horseback riding skills. On these rides children can become acquainted with horses, build their confidence in riding and achieve an affinity for their equine partners. One of the great joys of riding is the harmonious interaction with an equine partner on a physical and spiritual level. Children in their teens can often ride as well as many adults so that they can take our more demanding rides.
Horseback riding vacations for families offer more than a chance to practice a fascinating sport together. They are also a wonderful introduction to another culture which can stimulate interest in history, art and foreign languages. A common love of horses and riding makes contact with local people more rewarding. In cases where some members of the family do not wish to ride there are often other interesting activities available like visiting nearby points of interest, swimming or hiking.
It gives us special pleasure to plan custom trips for larger or smaller family groups and many have found these trips the adventures of a lifetime. Our tours can often include non-riding extensions.
