Icelandic Trail Riding Package
Location: Hartstone Inn & Hideaway
Package includes two nights lodging, sumptuous breakfasts each morning, dinner for two, featuring the Chef's spectacular five-course tasting menu and a 90 minute introduction to Icelandic Horses. Your riding adventure will begin at noon at our very own Pepper Hill Farm, located just 15 minutes away in South Thomaston. The Icelandic Horse is renowned for its five natural gaits. While most other breeds have only three or four gaits, the Icelandic Horse can Walk, Tölt, Trot, Pace, Canter or Gallop. Your guide will demonstrate the various gaits and assist you with your questions. You will have the chance to get to know your horse in our indoor or outdoor arena. You'll learn why Icelandic horses are so unique! Once comfortable you will be riding the trails through the woods and fields on the farm with your guide. We also have an on-site track which gives the horses good footing and distance to show off their gaits and their very smooth ride.
As an added bonus, we'll send you with a picnic lunch for two complete with an Italian Grinder, homemade dill-potato salad, fresh seasonal fruit and for dessert, a Maine whoopie pie!
