Preparing for Your Trail Ride
We do most of the preparing for you — getting your horse ready, the saddle fit properly, etc. — but there are some things you can do to make your ride all the better!The more comfortable you are, the more your horse can feel it, and the more likely you’ll both have a fantastic time. Check the weather and think in layers, sunscreen, a hat, and a bottle of water! Footwear:
Always start with a decent pair of socks! Boots with a slight heel are the best for riding, (like a cowboy boot or riding boots) however, tennis shoes are sufficient. Stay away from big bulky hiking-type boots, these tend to get caught up in the stirrups. On your legs:
Long pants! Jeans or riding tights work perfectly. Shorts are a poor choice as your bare skin may rub the saddle. Up top:
Dress for the weather. If it’s sunny, wear summer shirts (and lots of sunscreen). In the colder months, bring a jacket or coat. We can strap them right to the saddle for you!
Bring some water or something to keep yourself hydrated. Even if it’s a short ride, you’ll want to take a drink before we head out on the trail. The best way to avoid altitude issues is to stay hydrated. Other items to think about:
Sunscreen, sunglasses (a strap for these if you have one is a great idea), gloves (not necessary, but nice), a granola bar or snack to have after your ride or during the longer rides. Sometimes the mosquitoes can get annoying, so bring bug spray or wear long sleeves, especially in the Spring!
When you make your reservation, just ask us any questions you have and we’ll get you set up and ready to ride! Please remember that gratuities are not included in your horseback ride price. It’s customary to tip the Wranglers!
We expect people to keep their reservation, however, we do no expect people to ride in storms or if the weather is bad. Please call to find out if we may cancel the ride. No charges will be made if we cancel a ride or lesson.
A credit card is required to hold your reservation. Card will not be charged until after your ride at which time you can choose to pay with cash or credit card. Cancellation Policy – 24 Hour notice must be made for a ride cancellation for all rides. $15 per person will be charged if meal rides are not cancelled 24 hours ahead of your scheduled time. $10 per person will be charged for regular trail rides. No Call, No Shows, and Back Outs of any ride or lesson will be charged full price for each rider in your party. If your party arrives for your ride and someone chooses not to ride is a back out.
$5 a night. Primitive means there is no water or electric hook ups. Water will need to be hauled in for use at camp. Water troughs, a pond and creek are available along parts of the property for livestock during your ride.Port-a-potty available in certain areas only. No showers at this time.
Here at Old Caldwell Trail Stables, we want folks to get the feel of what life was like living on the trail. Pioneers didn’t have manicured campsites, parks, and lawns to camp out and stay the night on. They threw up their tents and rested their livestock on whatever terrain was around them. Come step back into a simpler time with us! Your visit at our ranch is only limited by the imagination! Ask us what you are looking for in a retreat and we may have it to offer! Lots more options not listed so give us a call!

Deviations may be made in advance, choice of meal for your group must be chosen a day prior to your reservation. Your visit at our ranch is only limited by the imagination!
