What do you need to know? ~


  • We start everyone off with 30 mins in the arena! If you wish to be on the trail longer, we reccommend a full 2 hour ride. To avoid the refresher in the arena, you must understand the difference between direct reining and neck reining; if you do not know this, we highly recommend you start off with one or two (or more!) Riding Lessons. (We also do trail rides as part of lessons for qualified students!)

  • Plan ahead!  We are a private facility and reservations are required.  We do not accept walk-ins; If you don't receive a confirmation email, we are not expecting you!


  • You will need to call ahead for directions to your trail tour at least 24 hours in advance.


  • You will always be meeting us at a trail head at the park.


  • When you make your reservations, make sure that the times/date work for everyone in your party.


  • Make sure you have the right clothing and things you want to bring with you. As a rule, you should layer your clothes.


  • There is a weight limit of 280 lbs.  Be honest, you can hurt the horse you ride if you really weigh more.


  • Since are tours are private and are booked according to a mutual schedule,  we do not offer refunds. A credit or gift certificate may be provided should there be some reason why you did not complete your scheduled ride/ lesson.


  • If you are more than 15 minutes late you may forfeit some or all of your ride.  Always give yourself extra time in order to get ready for the ride, check in and perhaps give yourself some time to familiarize yourself with your horse.  We think it's very important for you to bond with your horse.


  • Ask the reservation desk what the particular rules are that apply when making your reservation.


  • If the weather is bad you will receive a rain check to reschedule your ride.

You'll find here at True Heart Equine Enrichment, we do trail riding differently. 


Instead of throwing beginners up on horses and expecting them to hang on by whatever means necessary, we empower riders to understand the mechanics of horseback riding and pursue forward progress in their equine education while having fun.  Not to mention, the above-mentioned method for trail riding is very unsafe and can often trick riders into believing they know more about horses than they really do because they "Went trail riding in Wisconsin Dells once," and then they get on a properly trained horse who doesn't simply follow, and accidentally back them into a ditch or turn them around in circles.


Our horses have their own unique personality, and are used by students to go to competitions- so they do not just follow the horse in front of them (which, lets be honest, doesn't sound like much fun anyway!).


But if you are looking for a fun and exciting way to ride, after their arena session, we let our trail riders go at the speed they are comfortable with, and make sure you are comfortable, correct, and confident during your ride!
