Horseback riding and Pemberton go hand and hand. At its deepest origins Pemberton is a small farming community. Riding horses has been in our town's DNA since it's inception.
Next time you visit Pemberton why not tour the beautiful back trails of Pemberton by horseback? There are several local companies in town that offer horseback tours. Many of the companies are family owned and have called Pemberton home their whole lives.
For the most part each company has their own personalized riding route planned out. Depending on your riding ability most companies will alter their itinerary for more experienced riders. The number 1 thing we often hear is 'I don't want the traditional nose to butt or single file horseback tour'. If you have some experience riding and relay this message to the company before hand they will often make sure to try and avoid this and get somewhere you can run or trot with the horses. If you aren’t comfortable running with your horse and would instead like to stick to the traditional format this can of course be accommodated as well.
Another question often asked is horseback riding a family activity. Yes, horseback riding is a great family activity. Every local company is used to giving tours to families and makes sure to match each horse with each person's age and riding ability. Children too young or not quite ready to go on the full tour can even sit on or take a quick ride around the stables.
Each company has a different place they like to take their riders. Some companies even offer overnight tours. Make sure to do your research and ask each company what they offer.
Most of the local company’s book tours in 2 hour blocks. The cost for a 2 hour horseback ride often ranges in the $70 - $80 range per person. *Custom booked tours with certain companies can run over 2 hours, as a result they will be priced higher.
