Royal Ridges Retreat provides a horsemanship program which addresses safe handling as well as riding and care of the horse. Lessons and classes include fellowship time and horse science. Fellowship time includes prayer, discussion and topics relating the Bible to horsemanship. Riders learn safe, productive ground handling skills and become responsible for grooming and saddling their horse. Ride time begins with safety and confidence then progresses along with the rider. At Royal Ridges, we stress communication and a relationship with the horse.

To schedule your trail ride you must FIRST call the office at 360.686.3737 so we can find out the day and time you wish to ride. Once we have given that info to the instructor we will confirm with you. Only then will we instruct you to purchase your trail on this site. All trails are pre-paid.
