News & Events
'Tis the season for horseback riding! The weather is beautiful, the trails do not need snow and our horses have their winter coats on.
Trail Ride Updates: rides will be going out from 10am till 3:30pm. Our longest ride is 2 hours.
The leaves are turning color and the days are cooling down as we move into fall - our favorite time to ride! October truly is one of the best months to go for a horseback ride - especially since we are offering discounted rates on all trail rides. Check our booking site for up to 30% off all trail rides this fall. Come on, lets ride!
If you have been out to our barn, chances are you have seen how happy and healthy our horses are. Did you know that horses eat 2 percent of their body weight in hay a day? For many of our trail horses, that equates to about 25 lbs of orchard grass/alfalfa mix hay? We are proud to grow all our natural pesticide free grass, alfalfa and orchard grass/alfalfa mix at our sister company the DDot Ranch. Healthy hay, happy horses.
Wow, can you believe it already August? We are having a great summer here at Piping Rock full of trail rides, camps and jumping lessons. New to Piping Rock and want to learn a little more? Check out our trainer/wrangler Sam Bouchie's interview with Lake Tahoe TV.
With over 40 participants ages 6 through 60 for our western and english classes, it was definitely one for the books!
