Sugarbush Getaway Ride

Sugarbush Getaway Ride
Vermont USA

This is the perfect escape for those who appreciate comfort and fine dining but still want an active and unusual vacation. Horseback ride across flowering meadows, find hidden swimming holes, visit charming villages and enjoy a comfortable couple of days at the picturesque country inn we have selected especially for you. There is no better introduction to the remarkable Icelandic Horse than these 2-day trail rides that take you on a scenic tour of this special region of Vermont. You will be matched to a horse to your level of experience and we'll travel at a pace that suits you so that you can experience the horse's gentle temperament and smooth gaits and come to respect and appreciate the amazing animal that this farm has dedicated themselves to. You won't believe how much action is possible underneath you while you feel the sensation, as native Icelanders describe it, of  "riding in an easy chair."  For over twelve years now there has been a steadily growing herd of Icelandic Horses within the Mad River Valley of central Vermont.  They live content and right at home amidst the majestic mountains, pretty waterfalls, crisp mornings of snowy winters and the luscious greenery of Vermont summers. The Horse Farm, founded in 1988, has shown over 3000 riders charming New England at its best.      
You'll return home fit and rested, with the memory of newly found friends and shared adventures. The Icelandic Horse that gave you the overwhelming feeling of floating across the scenic Vermont countryside is likely to keep a special place in your heart forever.
