Frequently asked questions

How old does my child have to be to go for a pony ride?
          -Pony rides are appropriate for children between the ages of 3-7 years old.
           -The child must be able to sit up alone, unassisted. 
​What time should I be there for a pony ride?
        Pony rides are recommended to come between trail ride arrival/departure times.
         This will be the shortest wait time.  If you call to ask about a recommended time be
         advised you will  be given only a suggested time; as animals are living creatures they
         are not predictible like automated rides!
         So please be patient and understanding if there is a wait, so that the animals can   
         receive a needed break or bucket of water! :)
What time do I need to be there for a trail ride?
          -30 minutes prior to Ride start time.
          -This will give enough time to fill out release of liability and get fitted for helmets. 
What if we are running late?
          -Due to the popularity of the programs we cannot accept late arrivals and the
            tour will not wait.  No refunds issued for late arrivals.
What if the weather is bad?
          -The Ride will go rain or shine. If for any reason White Mountain Horseback Riding
           closes due to severe weather concerns you would be issued a refund.
Where does the ride go?
          -The ride leaves the yard, heads towards the Saco river on a private
           trail through the woods and along the fields; designated just for the horses.
How fast does the horse go?
          -​This is just a walking ride and the horses will not go faster then a walk.
           -We are a gentle ride for tourists to enjoy the beautiful White Mountains at a
            scenic pace on horseback. 
          The horses' health is our number one priority, and several hours of walking each
          day with beginner riders is more than enough work for them!  If you are looking
          for a more advanced ride we are unfortunately not that place.
