Horseback Riding In Hamilton County Indiana

Trail rides, horses and more is what you will find in Hamilton County Indiana. As you know,I love to go horseback riding and the trails in Hamilton County did not disappoint. K-Trails Equestrian Adventures recently hosted me on a horseback ride that was over the tops.

I have not spent a lot of time in Indiana and was a little leary about what this particular trail ride would be like. I was pleasantly surprised, as to the awesome nature experience that I was introduced to in Hamilton County.

Our trail guide gave us a safety lesson and even included information on keeping the trails clean. K-Trails Equestrian Adventures offers family trail rides, guided rides, sunset rides, pony rides and more. The family trail ride is a 90-minute experience, including instruction, outfitting and the trail ride. Longer rides and private family experiences are available at an additional expense. The age requirement for all trail rides is 7 and older. Parent / Grandparent assisted pony rides are available for children younger than 7 years old.

The trail is shared with bicyclists and people out walking and/or running. On the trail ride I was on, we had no issues whatsoever; in regards to sharing the trail. As with any trail ride, most of the horses know exactly where to walk, who to follow and where they go. I was over the moon thrilled, as he trees were just beginning to pop in color on the day I rode the trails.

One can only imagine how beautiful this trail ride is in the thick of fall foliage. I have no doubt that fall brings extraordinary color to this area.

It’s important to note that this particular trail riding business, only offers guided tours. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, which made the experience even sweeter. Horseback riding is an activity that families can enjoy while visiting Hamilton County Indiana. Don’t you agree that this horse is the sweetest looking thing ever? He’s so sweet that I have honestly forgotten his name!

    I love horseback riding but I am not an experienced rider. This guided tour over the beautiful trails is exactly for me.

    That a is beautiful horse indeed. I’ve only gone horseback riding once, and it was extremely memorable. My mare Cash was quite the strong-willed horse!

    What a fun outing. I’m in Indiana right now (Bloomington), so might be worth a day trip. I had no idea such a company existed in Hamilton County, so I will check it out!

    Love the blooming redbuds in the spring forest. I’m actually going on an adventure trip in Hamilton County in June. I am hoping to do zip lines and canoeing. It looks like a beautiful region. Love your pictures.

    That horse is definitely the sweetest thing ever and this is a great idea for some relaxed family time!

    The one thing about this trail, is that bicyclists cannot go real fast, as it’s not wide open. I’m sure you have plenty of adventures to tell of, as a trail guide.

    I love when we get to ride horses when traveling. I have to say though, sharing a path with bikes would make me a bit wary. I used to be a trail guide and had some of those surprises. 🙂

    Maddie and I love horseback riding and this looks like it would be a perfect mother-daughter experience! Maddie is wondering what is the name of the horse you rode.

    I know that I am introducing a new activity to many people, in regards to the state of Indiana.

    No, but they talk about pack it in, pack it out. I have never heard anyone talk about basic trail respect before going on a trail ride. I have heard this type of talk before a hike, but not a horseback ride. And yes, they do clean-up on the trail, on a daily basis.

    I chuckled when I read about keeping the trails clean. Do you carry a garbage bag and shovel? You definitely look like you know what you’re doing on a horse, Sara.
