The Wild Life is a family owned property of 121 acres. With a nice combination of rolling fields and forests full of life, trail rides offer great views and variations of scenery.
With everything equine, The Wild Life offers trail rides, western lessons and English lessons.
Rides typically last an hour, but different lengths can be requested at the time of booking. At The Wild Life we host all rides as private tours. This means you and your family/friends will be the only ones on a ride.
Please book rides prior to coming to our property to ensure the horses are ready for you. We pride ourselves in letting our herd of horses do a maximum of 2 rides per day per horse.
