ONTARIO: HORSEBACK TRAIL RIDING IN PORT HOPE
During our weekend stay in Port Hope, one of the things on our itinerary was a horse back trail ride at Trickle Creek Farms. With living in the city, horseback riding is not something I can do very often so having horseback trail riding on our schedule really made another highlight to the weekend. The experience at Trickle Creek Farms was an incredibly fun experience being able to interact with the horses.
My only interaction with a horse prior to this weekend in Port Hope was when I was in elementary school so with no experience under my belt, horseback trail riding was a little frightening. The staff at Port Hope were really helpful and clear with directions/instructions. Upon being mounted on our horse, we were given a quick class of how to ride a horse. Slowly but surely we all got the hang of it and before we knew it, we were already on the trail ride.
Trickle Creek Farms keeps the group very small for those horseback trail riding. We had about 7 people in our group with 3 instructors in between 1-2 people to make sure we were all doing okay. As different parts of the trail we were going up and down hill, the instructor would remind us how to instruct the horses.
The entire ride was an incredible one hour experience! It’s great for family, a group of friends and even dates!
