We do ask that you wear a mask if you are coming into the barn, within 6 ft of us or other guests, and you are welcome to take it off once you are mounted. Our trail rides are by appointment only and maximum of 5 riders per group. 
We sanitize our helmets and boots after each use. 
We have had to increase our rates slightly this year as well due to Covid-19 restrictions.

At Windsong Ranch our trails are a beautiful mix of hardwood & softwood bush,

The trail pace is set to the level of the least experienced rider, walking the entire ride if need be, more experienced riders may jog & lope where permitted, not everyone is at the same level, we go to the least experienced riders level pace. Safety 1st!


You are in control of the horse you are riding and it will go where you ask it to, if you do not take control, it will choose its own way(generally to grass). Remember, horses are flight animals, meaning if startled, they can run first, ask questions later! Always pay attention to your surroundings on a horse! Deer, turkeys and other wildlife are seen on our trail rides often so keep an eye open!


You can learn to ride, drive or both on Windsong horses of varying experience levels. 

Lessons available for Horse Handling, Care, Training, Western Riding, or Learning to Drive horses and more!


Our various Carriages, Buggies or Hay Wagon depending on how many people you  have in mind, it's a great alternative if you are unable to ride -- Please ask if interested!

Rates starting at $200/hr
