Maine Guided Horse Rides 

Beginner Ride at Carousel Horse Farm

2024 prices $80 per person

This Group ride is available Fridays at 4 pm, Saturdays at 2 and 4 pm and Sundays at 4 pm.

Our 45 minute to one hour beginner Maine guided horse rides are our most popular rides for all level riders over the age of 8.  Special circumstances for 6 and 7 yr old but only 1 child under 8 and only two children under 11 are allowed per ride.   

You can be on a horse for the very first time or have experience and this ride will not disappoint.  It is a walk only pace through woods and fields with a gorgeous view of Mt. Washington on a clear day.  Wildlife abounds and our little wooded area just behind the barn is a virtual nursery of baby fawns, fox, fisher cats, wild turkey and many other species.  This ride is also known as the Fall Scenic Ride and the Winter Wonderland Ride depending on the season

 2024 Price $250 for 2 people, $400 up to 4 people

Available at 10 am, 4 and 6 pm Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, 10 am Saturdays and 6 pm Sundays

The Private Trail Ride is for two, three or four people who’d like a catered experience based on their comfort level and abilities.  This ride is automatically the easier trip when children under 10 participate unless they have extensive riding experience.   Some perks that aren’t included in our group rides are photos while out on the trail (not professional) and personalized instruction during the ride.  The more advanced version includes some trotting and the added complexity of riding steep hills, navigating more difficult trails and seeing a river with small waterfalls as well as the mountain view everyone gets to see.  An easier version for beginners does not include the river or trotting but  will include the mountain view.

The sunset ride covers the same trail as the beginner ride except we plan the trip to get to the top of the hill with the best view as close to sunset as possible.   All level riders including first time riders will enjoy this ride.  Book this horseback ride during May and June for the best sunset views.  Book in the summer to beat the heat.  And book in the fall for the brightest fall foliage experience.
