Riding

Trail Rides

Over 200 acres of the most serene trails with small streams, babbling brooks and miniature water falls. Rides follow well groomed and mapped trails across open fields and managed woodlands, rich in animal and plant life. Don’t be surprised by Deer standing a few feet away, ‘people watching’, as you ride past. Our rides are tailored to the comfort level each group, with a variety of different horses and trails. We will pick the horse for you based on your ability. All rides go at the speed of the least comfortable rider to keep it safe and enjoyable for everyone. Children must be 10 years of age to ride on the trail.

The fall colours will take your breath away! Contact Serenity Acres to book in advance.
