Horseback riding in CT is a wonderful way to get outside and enjoy nature while trying something totally new. I have had my fair share of horseback riding trips and always loved the simplicity of it. Connecting with an animal like that is something everyone should experience.

 I have pulled together a list of places where any skill level can go and explore a new section on the state whilst upon a noble steed.

1. Blue Spruce Farm – Monroe

Blue-Spruce-Farm

This place really caught my eye went I saw a picture of people wading in a pond with their horse! Blue Spruce Farm is such a beautiful area to explore. They have scenic wooded trails, rivers, streams, and a relaxing firepit to enjoy after your adventure. They’re a family-friendly barn that offers lessons, therapeutic riding, trail rides, birthday parties, hay rides, scout outings, a summer camp for kids and an overall excellent experience. Their trail rides provide a great way to unwind and explore nature. Check out their website for more information.

2. Windfield Morgan Farm – Litchfield

Join in on the trail riding fun at Windfield Morgan Farm located in Litchfield. You can enjoy a one-hour trail ride for $50 through the rolling hills of Litchfield. They have well-mannered trail horses that are perfect for any riders skill level. If you’re looking for a cool afternoon experience you can even book private lessons for all ages! Give them a call to reserve a spot for your next trail ride.

3. Gold Rush Farms – Easton

Gold-Rush-Farms

With over 120-acres of land in the heart of Fairfield County, Gold Rush Farms has no shortage of riding potential. You can enjoy the natural beauty of the town of Easton. You can enjoy a 45-minute trail ride for $45 or an extended trail ride for 90-minutes for $90. They welcome riders from ages 8 and above so saddle up! Make sure to make a reservation for your riding experience as spots can quickly be filled.

4. Stirrup Fun Stables – Lebanon

Stirrup-Fun-Stables

Over the river and through the woods is what you will get when you visit Stirrup Funs Stable. This is a non-profit facility, they rescue, rehabilitate, and nurture horses that need a little extra care. One of their main objectives is to build the bond between horse and human. When you pay a visit to this stable you will definitely feel the connection. These trail rides are great for any season but are especially awesome for fall foliage. For just $35 you can experience an hour of pristine trail-riding goodness.

5. Spirit Of the Horse Stables – Morris

Spirit-of-the-Horses-Stable

Beginners are always welcome at the Spirit Of The Horse Stables. Start your trail ride with a mini-lesson to make sure you get the basics down. You don’t have to come with a group or make a reservation before-hand, but all riders need to be 10 years or older. This is a great way to spend a little quality time with the family in a controlled and safe environment.
