Það sem verður gert

Ride. Restore. (Re)connect.

Picture yourself meandering through the idyllic, mountain-framed grounds of an old 300-acre dairy farm located in the Blue Ridge Mountains. On each side you’re surrounded by some of the most stunning flora and fauna in the Eastern US.

The two-hour horseback ride takes place on Evan’s family farm in rural Barnardsville, NC. Lovingly referred to as “The Dairy,” the farm was operated from the 1930s until 2008 and has a history almost as beguiling as the land it’s on. (To boot: it used to sell milk to the famous Biltmore Estate!)

We’ll begin the trail ride by getting to know each other and our horses. After that, I’ll briefly explain the ins and outs of horseback riding. Whether you’re a seasoned rider or first-timer, a kid or a retiree, it doesn’t matter; anyone can do it. Then we’ll be off, gaining 400 feet of elevation and a lifetime of memories.

As a longtime rider and horse enthusiast, I own and operate my business with the mission of giving my guests an unforgettable horseback riding experience. I am convinced that everyone can take something meaningful from mountain trail rides, whether it’s connecting with nature, enjoying a rare moment of solitude, or familiarizing themselves with the incredible equine world. My rides are intimate, resulting in a semi-private riding experience designed to meet the needs of each rider.

I remember falling in love with horses at the age of three. I spent most of my childhood dreaming, reading, and talking about horses —and begging my parents to buy me one. They finally did (his name was Taco). I’ve been riding and taking care of horses ever since. Before college I worked for Teton National Park leading guided trail rides. Five years ago I created my dream career by combining my passions for the outdoors, horses, travel, and people. I continue to read, learn, and dream about horses. I look forward to sharing this amazing experience with you.

Unbelievable! I had ready many reviews and so my expectations were perhaps unfairly high, yet the experience far exceeded those expectations! I'd been on trail rides before and seen horses sadly treated more as a commodity. I've also ridden a few times with a friend who has horses and treats them with dedicated loving care. However, a prior scary experience where my horse got spooked, reared up vertically then took off at full speed left me afraid, yet wanting to try again. Joy was the personification of kindness, compassion, warmth, and genuine care for both her horses and her clients. She took the time to get to know each of us, our experience levels and needs and matched us to exactly the right horse - not just in temperament, but even down to the horse's names, which were not only rich with meaning, but somehow oddly meant something special to each rider. Not sure what kind of magic or synchronicity was at work there, but all I can say is there was such depth and beauty in the experience - and it wasn't just coming from the exquisite surroundings. Joy ensured that I had a safe and happy ride - effectively healing the lingering fear from my prior experience. I am so grateful to her for this gift, for knowing intuitively what I needed, and responding with such kindness. I will never forget it.

Well she isn’t named JOY for no reason! Such a lovely, peaceful way to appreciate nature in the mountains. Joy was gentle, kind, smart and thoughtful in the design of this equine experience. She makes her guests feel comfortable, safe and capable.

We had an amazing experience with Joy and Chloe! They seemed to really love their horses and made us feel so comfortable riding them. As a very nervous rider I was aided and comforted above and beyond. Definitely recommend this experience if you’re in the area!

Joy was so accommodating to all of our needs before, during, and after our ride. She made us all feel so safe and confident on the horses.

Joy did a fantastic job at making you feel comfortable and safe on the horses! She did an excellent job at explaining their body language and how to take on each turn of the trail safely. The views were also incredible! Highly recommend :)

This trial ride is great for those with all levels of experience. Joy was very nice and personable and was knowledgeable about the horses. You can tell that she takes good care of her horses and is passionate about them. She took the time to explain how to ride a horse so that it made sense to those with all levels of experience. I really enjoyed getting to meet my horse and spend some time petting him before mounting him to ride. I would definitely do a trail ride with Joy again!
