My younger sister resides in upstate New York and graciously arranged a horseback riding outing for our family during our current summer vacation! The riding stables and farm are located in Pittsford, New York and the non-profit is called ‘A Horse’s Friend’ which provides growth and an alternative opportunity for all of the participants, both children and adults. With the combination of the program director, trained staff and volunteers, new and successful opportunities are the only outcome. Their program promotes responsibility, horse etiquette and horseback riding, and a safe environment for guests, guides and horses!
The land is untouched and protected public property forever to be kept that way. It has rolling hills and a canopied forest. Wild flowers and herbs a plenty!
My horses name was Karl. “Karleone” is the stud in the group. He was a complete gentleman with me and didn’t even need me to hold my reigns. It was a peaceful ride and by the end, we could look eye to eye. My butt is another story.
