Come Experience Kentucky on Horseback
Located on 250 wooded acres, Whispering Woods Riding Stables offers you the opportunity to experience Kentucky’s beauty in the most natural way…by Horseback! Our trails are heavily wooded and have hills, creek crossings, lots of beautiful hardwood trees, and abundant wildlife. Deer, Fox, Raccoon, Skunks and Wild Turkeys are often spotted on our property. The trails are suitable for beginners but also challenging enough to be interesting for more experienced riders. It’s almost as if you’ve stepped back in time to rediscover the natural beauty of the land that surrounds you. For those of you seeking a more adventurous ride, we offer private rides where you can pick up the pace on sections of the trail where it’s safe to do so.

Children can ride on the 45 and 90 minute trails when they are 8 years old and up. Children are never permitted to ride double with a parent due to safety measures. We have other options for children under the age of eight , such as the “Cabin Ride”- which is a hand-led mini trail ride through the woods on Horseback and also other pony rides! Check out our Pony Ride Page for more details.
There’s no upper age restriction on a hand led “Pony Ride”, as our motto is – You’re never too old to ride! If you have the desire to try horseback riding, we are here to assist as needed. So Let’s Go Riding at Whispering Woods Riding Stables, and let your Horseback Riding Adventure begin!
We want to make Horseback Riding available and accessible to everyone. Our weight restrictions are matter of safety in the case of the horses and their riders, but it’s also a matter of the soundness, health and longevity of the horses involved and we want to provide long-term loving care for our horses. We do have a weight limit of 240lbs for folks under 6′ tall and can go up to 270lbs for people over 6′ tall (please reserve our taller horses).
Please check out the chart below and call if you have any questions!
Suggested weight chart, not restricted. Call 502-570-9663 with any questions.
We don’t require a deposit or ask for payment up front due to weather or traffic, so please be courteous and cancel if you can’t make for the ride you scheduled. It will free up horses and often, other folks would like to ride too! We take payment upon arrival and except cash, credit or debit card.
