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 here. The trails are suitable for beginners but also challenging enough to be interesting for more experienced Riders. It’s almost as if – for a while, you’ve stepped back in time to rediscover the natural beauty that surrounds you. But for those of you seeking a more adventurous Ride, we can pick up the pace on sections of the trail where it’s safe to do so.
HORSEY THINGS WE OFFER…
We want to make Horseback Riding available and accessible to everyone, so we have at least 3 Draft Horses (Philippe, Poppy and Lieutenant) to accommodate larger Riders. We can take Riders weighing up to 280 lbs because our Draft Horses are very large boned and weigh around 2,000 lbs themselves. Drafts are gentle giants and very well mannered. You can see one of our Wranglers/Guides and Philippe in the picture to the right. We have a mounting block and we will be happy to assist you in mounting and dismounting as we do with all our Riders.
Children can ride on their own Horse when they are Eight years old and up. Children are never permitted to ride double with a parent due top Safety precautions. Another option for children under the age of eight is a “Pony Ride” – which is a hand-led mini trail ride through the woods on Horseback.
There’s no upper age restriction on Pony Rides as our motto is – You’re never too old to ride. If you have the desire, 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 don’t require a deposit or charge due to weather or traffic, so please be courteous and call us if you need to cancel for any reason.
