Hold Your Horses and Saddle Up in the D!

By: Amber Ogden | August 22, 2018

It’s time to saddle up and take a ride around the D. There are so many trails and stables in the area, how could you not saddle up for a ride? Plus riding horses is therapeutic and just all out relaxing, all while improving your posture. Whether you’re a new  or experienced rider, get your adrenaline pumping and giddy up!

Maybury Riding Stable
Northville, MI

With a three mile trial located in Maybury State Park, this is perfect for new riders. Here, riders get one on one training from experienced professionals.  There are also tractor-drawn hayrides if you aren’t ready for the horse yet.

Rushlow’s Arabians
Romulus, MI

Located in Romulus, off the beaten path is an outdoor and indoor horse stable. Riders can enjoy a tour of all the beautiful horses housed inside the stables. They can also sign up for private lessons or enjoy the perks of a party.

Wild Wind Equestrian Center
South Lyon, MI

New riders and experienced riders alike come here to enjoy the experience of horse backing riding. There are more than horses on the grounds as there are also friendly dogs on the property to welcome all that come. However, horses are the main attraction as there are 40 horses in the stables at any given time.

Four Points Farm
Commerce Township, MI

This is not your traditional farm. Riders of all ages are welcomed here and you can bring your little riders here for a week long camp where they can learn riding techniques and have fun while doing it.  If you are nervous or seconding guessing becoming a rider there is also a therapeutic riding instructor to assist you.

HOPE Horsepark

Here at HOPE, which stands for  “Hold on, Pain Ends”, after battling stage 4 cancer owner Colin Chislett was inspired to ride and create this program for healing. Their mission is to help heal others by connecting riders with the healing powers of nature and horses.
