Pricing for Silver River State Park: Sorry....we are no longer riding at Silver River State Park as the trails have been a bit wet and the riding can damage the trails in the wet conditions.

Thank you so much for a fun afternoon. My young cousin Jenna was so happy and she really enjoyed the relaxing ride. We had a great time and as a long time horse person I appreciate that fact that the horses were well trained and quietly gentle.
Thank you once again for a delightful day!
Thank you for the wonderful ride today! We really enjoyed it.
On Saturday, my son Dakota and I came up for the ride. I wanted to tell you how incredibly impressed we were with Nicole.
She was such a delight and spent so much time on the ride talking with my son about every aspect of horses and riding, patiently and enthusiastically answering his questions. The horses are obviously so well taken care of, and the Greenway was beautiful, but Nicole really made the experience exceptional. Please be sure to pass this along to her and share how much we enjoyed the trip. We’ll be back and will be sure to recommend it to everyone.
Thanks for providing a fabulous Saturday afternoon for us!
Please feel free to call for more information. We can schedule your ride and match you up with a good horse for a great outdoor experience.
Please contact us anytime! We look forward to hearing from you.
