HORSE BACK RIDING – Intro to Horseback Riding and lovely trail ride. Here you get to go on a gentle trail ride with the horses walking the trails. Great for beginners and first timers and those who simply love horses.
Our Horse-Back Riding Adventure Bus Day Trip includes round trip transportation from Toronto and a 1 hr trail ride on horse back through Claireville Conservation Area. This is another amazing get away from city life. Claireville is an oasis for wildlife- a healthy diverse urban forest sprawled over 848 hectares and one of the largest natural corridors.
The stable says: “All the horses are well trained and the riders don’t require experience.”, but as usual, you are responsible for your own safety and your own safety decisions.
We have done this trip many, many times. Claireville Ranch is well run with informed and well trained instructors. On all of our past trips, the horses have been gentle and well behaved.

A Great way to Socialize, Enjoy Nature, and Have Fun!

– Helmets are optional for adults over 18 years old and mandatory for anyone under 18. Helmet Rental Price $6. Sorry, only HorseBack Riding Helmets allowed, no bike helmets. (why, ask the insurance companies).
What you cannot bring while riding the horse:
Loose articles such as purses, cell phones, cameras and keys are not permitted on the trail rides. Please leave all valuables in the bus or leave them in the designated area. Such items can be easily lost when riding, as the movement of the horse causes them to work their way out of even the deepest pockets, where they will fall unnoticed onto the trail to be stepped on, or into the VERY long grass, never to be seen again. We are not responsible for lost items. Anything held in your hand while riding will impair your ability to properly control your horse and is therefore considered a safety hazard. We will be happy to assist you with taking pictures either before or after your ride whenever time permits, as we know that capturing these memories is important to you.
