This membership is for 1 person, (age 16+) who is an intermediate rider and has taken at least one guided class at MGF.  Horses, tack, and helmets are provided.  The individual must be able to confidently groom, tack, mount, and ride the horse by his/herself.  No staff/guide will be present to guide the trail ride.  This is a "ride at your own risk" contract.  (Please see Horseback Trail Ride Guidelines below for more information.) 

All MGF horses are older horses who prefer to walk slowly.  Trail rides are for enjoying the fresh air on horseback and are for walking along the marked paths only. 

Horseback Trail Ride Rules/Guidelines

Please review the horseback trail riding guidelines to help make sure your time on the farm is safe and enjoyable.

  1. Trail rides will be on mowed/marked paths on our 76 acres. Please note, cows will also be on the property.

  2. Riders must wear jeans or pants and boots (or close toed shoes) and helmets.

  3. Your session is for 1 hour.  You can arrive up to 15 minutes early to catch and tack the horse.

  4. The monthly memberships are a "Ride at your own Risk" agreement. (See below for more info on KS law.)

  5. All participants must sign the online farm waiver.  This will stay current for 2024.

  6. Bottled water will be available inside the barn in the fridge.  Feel free to help yourself.

  7. Please do not open any gates to the animal pens.  They love to explore new areas and can be very difficult to catch if they get out!  You are welcome to pet animals through the fence.

  8. We ask that you please respect the farm property and pick up any litter or clean up any messes. A trashcan is located in the barn (in the top of the cabinet by the west door.

  9. You will choose your day/time for each session via the MGF website.  Payment is due at the time of sign up.  First come, first serve for day/time.
