Overview

We offer specialty trail rides year round by reservation. Three are offered all year, seasonally we have ice cream rides in the summer in Casco, sunset rides in the fall in Casco and beach rides in the winter on Popham or OOB. We offer carriage tours in Freeport and Old Orchard seasonally as well. Riding with your own horse here at the farm is a great option too, on 5,000 acres of Jugtown Forest land.

Since you didn't take the ride yourself I'm surprised you can leave a review. I wasn't at all worried about dogs on the beach. Another woman in a different group of horses mentioned the dogs were making her nervous as we rode onto the beach....More
