Tired of the busy city life? Too much traffic and not enough space? Need a break? Maybe some quiet time with a little fun? How about a retreat to the scenic mountains of West Virginia? And while you’re at it, stop in and see us at Hidden Trails Stables for a relaxing, beautiful guided trail ride. We are located inside of Lost River State Park and have trail rides that range from a pony ride, for the youngsters, to a 2-hour ride, for the true adventurer. First timer? No need to worry. Most of our riders are first-timers and we are proud to say that almost all return with a smile. Have children? No problem. We take children 7 and older out on the trails with us and for those younger who are just itchin’ to get in the saddle, we take them on a “hand-held” ride on a trail right near the barn.
So, come and visit us back here where life is slower, scenery is naturally exquisite, and fun is waiting for you down here at the barn. Your horse is waiting for you here to give you the horseback riding experience that you will treasure.
