Retired Racehorses Private Riding Experience at Lake Fork
Experience a rare opportunity to ride retired racehorses. Our experience is tailored for the beginner rider giving you a hands-on experience into horse care and horseback riding. Our well-trained Thoroughbred racehorses will show you the ropes in the arena and take great care of you while providing a fun horseback riding experience.
We provide free and reduced rate riding lessons for low income, autistic and military kids in our community. We also rescue, retire and retrain retired racehorses ensuring that they have second careers after racing. All of the funds generated from our horseback riding excursions go to support the nonprofit and raise funds so local kids can benefit from our programs.

What's excluded :
We believe in our guests getting hands-on with the horses. First, you will learn how to groom your horse and learn about him and his past. Each of our horses have unique personalities as well as histories as retired racehorses and retired show horses.
Next, you'll learn how to saddle up. We offer English and Western dressage. If you've ridden before, try something new.
Finally, you will ride in our 100x150 ft lighted arena. We will teach you the basics so that you will be able to safely maneuver your horse around the arena, around obstacles and over ground poles. Horseback riding is a lot more than just sitting there!
When we're done riding, we'll unsaddle the horses, groom again and the feed them treats for a job well done. If it's hot, we might even give them a nice hose down.
