Horse's were wonderful, farm was beautiful, the 3 ladies that helped us and rode with us were wonderful and patient. The only reason it isnt rated 5 stars is the trail we took was just okay, very little scenery to take in. Staff was perfect!!

I spent four heavenly hours here, including a fascinating tour of the farm, a hack with a wonderful guide through gorgeous countryside, and delicious bareback riding. The tour (given by the 3rd-generation owner) introduced us to most of the beautiful horses and Highland Coos, and...More

Unfortunately I do not have a list of their winter hours, but I am sure they will have all their opening hours on their web page. Failing that a quick call will give you the information.
