Ward Pound Ridge Reservation
Lasting around 1.5-2 hours, on the reservation bridle trails. These beautifully maintained trails are riding terrain including water crossings, woodlands, open fields and both natural and man-made jumps placed throughout.
If you have spent most of your riding career in an arena, testing your skills in the open space can be both exhilarating and intimidating. This ride offers a rare opportunity to gallop across fields and immerse yourself in natures true beauty on horses that are trained for this environment and in a small and accommodating group. All jumps are optional and can be avoided.
Experience: Rider can post the trot and is comfortable cantering, can be suitable for first open space ride. More experienced riders will be able to jump in a separate group.
Recommendations: Casual riding attire, must bring helmet. If you are considering a hunter pace or foxhunting, you should first join us on a Bedford Hack to meet the horses and our group.
