We're excited to introduce you to some new, proven trail horses we recently brought home from Tod Mountain Guest Ranch. Tracey, the owner of Tod Mountain Guest Ranch, has decided to return to the UK and so has found homes for all her great horses - we got three of them. You'll see them on the trails a little bit over the winter and regularly during the summer of 2016. See you in the saddle!
That's Titan with the big yawn and Charlie Cache beside him
This is the big horse, Texas, with his soft expression
All three new horses - from left to right, it's Texas, Titan and Charlie Cache - enjoy a quiet, foggy morning in their pasture
Sunset rides start at around 2:30 this time of year! We finished up at 4:00 as the sun was on the horizon. It was perfect. The day was clear and cool. Thanks for riding with us, Jordan and Teila!
I'd like to share this photo by a very talented young photographer, Larissa Price, in honour of Remembrance Day. Thank you, Larissa, for your thoughtful and creative work. And a heartfelt thank you to all those who fought for us and our country, horse and human alike. We salute you
The fall weather is perfect for riding - so long as the rain holds off! And on this day, it did. On this ride, we had a couple of sisters who have decided to get out and do more active, fun things together (great idea!), and a mom and daughter out celebrating the daughter's birthday (she's the one waving at us). Thanks, everyone, for riding with Glen Valley Stables - we really appreciate it!
Big smiles at the end of the ride! Both riders were pretty new to horses - the one on the right had only ridden once before, and that horse just went backwards! She loved riding Traveller and said that the day's ride was one of her best day's ever, maybe even better than her wedding day (though not quite!). Thanks, ladies - you were a pleasure to take for a ride.
There's nothing better than a happy kid on a horse! This photo was from a few weeks ago before the cold weather finally arrived. Thanks for riding with us!
Here's where we share photos and memories of some of our guests and the horses they get to call their own for an hour or two. Saddle up!
