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. And…
If you enjoy your ride, tip your guide!
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 guides and Philippe in the picture to the right. We have mounting blocks, and we will 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 because of safety concerns. Another option for children under the age of eight is a “pony ride” – a hand-led mini trail ride through the woods on horseback. And there’s no upper age restriction either. You’re never too old to ride. If you have the desire, we will help you up onto your horse. So let’s go riding at Whispering Woods Riding Stables, and let your horseback riding adventures begin!

Reminder: caution horseback riding is a rough and rugged riding activity
We try to keep the best horses at our stables but situations may acure that will cause an animal to react to their natural instinct
