For the younger kids (ages 3 & up) and timid adults, we now offer lead-line rides. This one-on-one ride will be given by a trained handler in a controlled environment on a well-seasoned docile horse. Bring the kids for a great first experience that will last a lifetime.
The horses are led by a wrangler of Leatherwood Mountains. We can accommodate as many children during these sessions as time will permit
