Age and Weight Restrictions:

For the health and safety of our horses and riders we have a few limitations. Riders must be under 240lbs unless over 6ft tall and then we can go up to 265lbs.
Children can ride on the 45 and 90 minute trails when they are 8 years old and up. Trail riders must be over 44in tall. 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” or “Pony Ride”. 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.

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.
