HORSEBACK RIDING

Horseback ride in the woods near Quebec City

Riding western saddle

You love horses and you enjoy horseback riding? From spring to autumn, our experienced guides will make you discover the pleasures of a walk in the woods on the back of a horse. Our hikes are a length of 1 hour. Our guides will share their knowledge regarding the behaviour of the horses. From the reception, even before you engage in the forest, you will be charmed by a beautiful view overlooking the two lakes. After a few minutes of walking, it is with a smile that you will bypass the trees, cross culverts and streams.

Learn to direct your horse

You will quickly learn to understand non-verbal language of the horse. The knowledge will allow you to develop a relationship of trust with the animal and also to reward them with the appropriate gestures. A special bond will be created, making your experience more personalized. The horses will be tacked up and ready to take you on the ride. We suggest you to bring your camera, because during the hike, our guides will be happy to take pictures. So get out your hats and beautiful smile!

Bel après-midi d'automne où nous avons pu jouer avec des bébé Husky et faire une promenade en forêt à dos de cheval. L'accueil a été super et tout s'est bien déroulé. Tarif abordable. Je recommande pour toute la famille!

Emplacement incroyable, sentier magnifique. J'ai adoré: les chevaux sont super gentils et super bien traités. J'ai beaucoup aimé Charlie, Bella et Puce. La pêche a été super, le personnel est au top et les proprios sont super sympathiques! Bref, un petit paradis
