At the Shovelhead Ranch we ride in western style. We have two gentle American Quarter Horses (Cody and Mr. Utah) who are well trained. Cody and Mr. Utah are saddled with the finest quality saddles and leatherwork and pure wool saddle pads. Monique is your private guide and she only takes 1 rider at the time.
Monique rides Mr. Utah and the guest rider will ride our mare, Cody. The maximum weight of the guest rider is 90 kilograms and the age of 16 years or older. Also, you must be an experienced rider as the horses are not riding school type horses. The grooming of the horses before and after the trail ride and the trail ride itself are at your own risk. Wearing a riding helmet is mandatory and good footwear is a must.

We offer 3 riding possibilities to choose from:
