I hadn't ridden in about 10 years, and my sister in 4 times that..... but on our annual sojourn to Provincetown, we wanted to do something new ! Horseback riding it was ! This was the closest outfit we could find to Ptown. It turns out the horses seem happy and they are well cared for. That was first, and foremost to me. We had 4 persons, plus our guide, "Jay" in our group. The horses are mellow and used to people and commands. Actually, most of the time they were on auto pilot, which was good- because I wasn't all that confident in what I was doing. These animals are huge ! Jay described them affectionately as akin to being like really big dogs in terms of their personalities and desires. OK, I would agree. I had "Cody" and my sister had the smaller, older "Geyser" though I liked to refer to him as "Geiser." They knew the routine and were well-behaved.
We traipsed through the woods, wearing down some fresher paths, to do our duty helping to carve the woods' trails...... instruction was given beforehand by Jay, and we all had to wear helmets. You sign a waiver form but its clear that safety is important to the staff in spite of the formalities. You mount your horse from a platform. You cannot weigh over 200 lbs. You have to like horses..... and animals, in general- which, "duh" - goes without saying. The trails are mostly easy, with a few small inclines and declines. The cost is $75.00 per person, and you get about an hour on the trails on the farm's private property in East Brewster for that amount. Cash or check only. The owner (I think) "Nancy" called me after I reserved the ride online. She was pleasant and making the connection turned out to be easy, though initially I wasn't sure. Don't expect a call back on Sunday. That is- deservedly, their day off, it seems. But she will get to you.
This experience is a bit expensive I think.... as just a few years ago it was still $50.00 pp. Nevertheless.... DO IT ! I probably won't go back to do this again, because I got my western riding fix, and I think it has a long shelf life for me. But its a fun experience- the people and the horses are nice- and you can be a klutz and still get by ......
DO IT ! The horses are cool and we had a perfect 73 degrees weather day.... it doesn't get much better than that ! I love Cape Cod !
