Vermont Country Inn Ride - Sugarbush


Vermont Country Inn Ride - Sugarbush
Vermont USA
Welcome to the glorious Green Mountains and Mad River Valley of Vermont. Nestled along the river, the elegant, relaxing inn is your vacation getaway home and the starting point for your riding explorations on the smooth gaited Icelandic horse. You will be venturing into the Mad River Valley resting between the Green Mountains and enjoying country inn hospitality at its finest. From the moment you enter the sunny front room of the Victorian style inn, with its white wicker furniture and pastel floral prints or take in the flower-bedecked back porch veranda overlooking the pretty gazebo and the lush gardens in open fields, you will know you have arrived to the heavenly Vermont countryside. You will be riding through  green meadows, quiet forests, and of course, along Vermont's famous dirt country roads. You will be greeted by the rivers and streams which cut into the mountains and on warm days you are welcome to take a refreshing swim.
You'll enjoy very comfortable accommodations and gourmet dining, all with a generous helping of Vermont hospitality. When you awaken, you will be served a delicious three-course gourmet breakfast, and you may be accompanied by a hummingbird or two. During the summer, we serve breakfast outdoors on the covered back porch. Breathe in the landscape, distant red barns, meadows of wild flowers, fields of corn. The warm hospitality and relaxed atmosphere make you feel right at home. For lunch we bring either a delicious picnic to eat at a pretty spot or we stop at a specially selected restaurant. After riding, you will come back to the inn for the daily afternoon tea, the lights go dim and soft classical music fills the air. Choose your favorite tea and cup from the inn's private collection of antique china. Savor your beverage in front of our cozy fireplace.

Breathtaking views, unique horses, and a charming inn with wonderful food, make this a very memorable riding experience.


The Icelandic horses are extremely hardy and tolerant, but part of what makes them so special is the fact that they control five gaits – making for a very smooth ride. The combination of the horses' smoothness and our Icelandic saddles, designed for many hours of use, ensure a comfortable ride.
In Spring, life unfolds here, as the grass turns green and the trees begin to look like a pastel painting. Flowers and blossoms appear at every turn, and nesting and migrating birds fill the air with motion and song.
In Summer, refresh yourself in one of our local waterfalls or swimming holes, or try a round of golf at Sugarbush's famous 18-hole course, designed by Robert Trent Jones. Our quiet country roads and trails invite road and mountain cycling. Make a wish as you walk through one of the Valley's covered bridges, and amble through the Saturday Farmers' Market for produce fresh from the field, locally-made crafts, foods, and live music. On Independence Day, follow the crowd to the Warren Fourth of July Parade. In August, the Festival of the Arts offers a wealth of choices for every taste.
In Autumn soak in the multitude of the fall colors and enjoy the splendor of nature's magnificent color wheel, go antiquing, soaring, or visit the Inn's own pumpkin patch.

Non Riders are welcome to join their friends or spouses - plenty of things to do in the area while they ride!
