While celebrating our 20th anniversary we wanted to do something unique during our stay (besides hiking in Hocking Hills). While reviewing riding stables online I came across Blue Moon Acres. I liked the fact that they only take out small groups and have a smaller number of horses available. This means that each horse gets more individual attention and care than a stable with 20+ horses. What really hooked me is the fact that they have horses for larger people. Neither of us has been on a horse for almost 20 years and during that time we have gained a lot of weight!
We played phone tag for a few days (mostly because of my schedule). In talking to Becky, I could tell she really cares and wanted to make sure she picked the right horses for us. My husband rode Stroker, the Percheron, and I rode Mysti’k, a draft mix. They were perfect choices! Stroker calm and smart (great for a beginner) and Mysti’k was spunky but did everything I asked of her (I am an advanced rider). It was drizzling that morning so we wore rain ponchos and took the 2 hour ride. I was just as good as going on a clear day. The trails are not just on level ground as some trail rides are. We saw a lot of interesting rock formations and parts of the trail were muddy and slippery which made the ride even better!
The horses are the healthiest, best groomed riding horses I have ever seen at trail ride stable. I felt the price for a 2-hour ride was more than fair due to our experience. I highly recommend this place.
Pros: Great horses, great experience, personalized trail ride.
Cons: Not for large groups, young kids who are novice riders
