Our trail ride is a fun adventure where riders get to spread out and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Benbrook Lake. Our trail rides take place on the lake trails, where riders can take in the scenic views of Lake Benbrook, see the downtown Fort Worth Skyline, and weave in and out of the natural scenery of the North Texas area. Riders may even catch a glimpse of the local wildlife.
Our trail rides are never a nose to tail ride where one horse is following along behind another, but rather a relaxing and scenic ride where the horses get to spread out and stroll through the natural beauty of the area. Trail rides are personalized to each group, and our guides will make any rider feel comftorable on their horse. Kids and adults alike will be walked through everything they will need to know.

Being immersed in the natural beauty of the Fort Worth area from the back of a horse is truly a beautiful and surreal experience. All from a vista which is the turnaround point for our one hour ride. The ride includes an in-depth safety briefing, a friendly guide ready to answer any questions you may have, and friendly horses ready to show you around. Our guides love getting to show off our beautiful horses and share what made them fall in love with riding.
Our Trail horses stand out among of the best trail and lesson horses in the United States and abroad. They are all amazing trail horses, as they are picked especially for beginners and first time riders. They are well trained, easy going, calm, gentle, and have very kind and sweet dispositions. We put a tremendous amount of time and training into making sure our horses are safe for a beginner and fun enough for someone who may have a little more time in the saddle under their belt.
We love all of our horses, and it shows. They have breaks throughout the year and are rotated everyday so that they never get tired of their job. They are bathed, groomed, exercised, and turned out daily to socialize. They are given days and weeks off at a time to relax and recharge so that they all stay healthy and happy. We feed them an all natural healthy diet, complete with top quallity hay and fresh clean water.
These are some of our beautiful trail horses:
