Guided Rides for Non-horse owners: You will get to see the wildlife and experience a slower, simpler time in life. Let us treat you to an all day adventure for your family or group. Our rides are not “sissy” rides that you get at the State parks, you will actually get to see the National Forest from the back of a good horse, just as if you were riding your own. Rides from Midwest Trail Ride can be 2 to 6 hours in length (your choice). A popular destination is the ride to the historic Hickory Grove Church. A log church built in 1880 and still operates today with a small, local congregation. There is a “pit toilet” at the church as well as hitch rails to tie the horses and picnic tables. Our trail guide will help you plan the perfect adventure for your group.
Horse Rental, $150 per horse, per day. That includes all rides from 2 – 6 hours. Included in price: one safe trail horse, a saddle, bridle, trail tags, a trail guide and any other equipment that horse needs.
Guided Trips can include over night trips (Lost Cabin Pass) or dinner and a horse back ride for your group! If you have your own group of 8 or 10 folks and wish to book it for a private tour, just email our office to inquire about costs and time scheduling: email@example.com or call 812-834-6686
**Most guided rides are walk only and geared to beginning trail riders. If you go, please be respectful of the trail guides as they work with beginning riders. Trail Guides may not necessarily ride in front, they will ride where it works best for all horses on the ride. If you are coming alone this is a good way to meet others. Groups are typically less than 10 people.
Horse Owners: may book a guide, by appointment only, anytime you will be staying at MTR. Call ahead for pricing and to get an appointment. Riding with a guide who knows the forest allows you to relax and enjoy the day without checking your map a dozen times and arguing with your friends about where you are.
