The Galloping Inn is thrilled to have Rebecca Sleeman as our Director of Equestrian Services. Becca is an accomplished horse-woman with over 20 years of experience and is known for her gentle disposition and deep knowledge of horses. She competes in barrel racing competitions across the East Coast along with performing in local rodeos.
Becca runs a very organized stable, and manages the twelve box stalls and four tie stalls. Our horse breeds include Tennessee Walkers, Morgans, Arabians and Percherons. Please contact Becca if you are interested in renting the indoor or outdoor arenas for training or showing.
In addition to managing the daily operations of the Galloping Inn stables, Becca also leads our trail rides. For many years, she has been leading organized trail rides for beginner riders and experienced ones through the Pennsylvania wilderness. Ride speed will not exceed a walking pace until the guide is confident in all the riders' abilities. This is for the safety and enjoyment of everyone.
|* 1 hour||$45|
* Experience necessary
(the trails are a little more challenging).
Trail riders must be over 12. All riders must wear a riding helmet which we will provide.
We offer arena rides for small children. This is a very basic yet enjoyable experience designed with safety in mind. The child is seated in a saddle. Once comfortable, the guide leads the horse on a short ride. Don't forget your camera!
Learn the basics of leading and grooming. This is a great first step for interested riders or for those looking to improve their ground work. It provides riders a deeper understanding of horses and strengthens their comfort level with the animals. Horses often react to human emotions, so the key to relaxing a horse is staying relaxed yourself. This is why many find simply spending time with a horse to be highly therapeutic.
Hay rides are a great way to take in the country side with your entire group. Rides are provided by veteran horseman Ken Hanson. The rides are lead by his team of award-winning Percherons.
Percherons are an exotic breed, widely recognized for their outstanding substance and soundness, as well as their characteristic beauty and style.
The maximum capacity for hay rides is 15 people.
