Clydesdale Trail Ride

RESCHEDULED from 3/15 to 3/29.

Embrace the spirit of winter and enjoy an hour long trail ride on you own magnificent Clydesdale horse. Using such a docile, level headed breed makes it possible to accommodate any rider at any skill level. From the fearful beginner who panics at the sight of a horse to braver more advanced riders, they have a horse to make your experience as enjoyable, and safe as possible.

Worth the drive! Post in the comments if interested in carpooling.

We will reschedule in case of inclement weather.

    That was fun, definitely worth it. The leaders were great and the horses were so sweet!

    Guys we are still on. The farm is expecting us. This is a winter activity and was when you signed up. If we reschedule again, I still can't guarantee sunshine. See you there.

      I was coming but I have a migraine now so I'll miss it. :(

    The RIDE IS ON @ NOON!

    I spoke to the farm and we discussed the weather. There is only a 30% chance of rain and we are willing to take those odds. So get out your rain gear, put on your big girl panties and MOUNT UP!

    Don't be late, because we will start the ride without you!

    Hey Lisa will we be riding if it is raining? Looks like that's the forecast for Saturday.

      I know steady rain from noon on..takes the fun away

      March 28, 2014

    • Lisa J.

      Guys, please just stand by and watch your email. I'm watching the reports and waiting for tje farm to make the call. Please trust me and just stand by.

    I know this particular event has been a royal pain to get scheduled due to this horrible winter! At the same time, it's quite a bit of money for the experience. I'm totally willing to go and be there at noon, and drizzle is fine, but if it is a steady drenching rain I really don't want to ride.

    Lisa, I reached out to by email in regards to a refund when this event was postponed again. Can you email me with the info please. Thanks

    March 27, 2014

    • Lisa J.

      Sorry Heather, I am going through my emails. Can you please email me again [masked]. Thanks.

      March 28, 2014

  • Janice C.

    Looking forward to it.

    March 28, 2014

  • Lisa J.

    So far so good. Farm says it looks good for Saturday! Yay! FINALLY!

    March 26, 2014

  • Karyn

    Hope you all have a great time! I am definitely interested if you enjoy & decide to schedule it again.

    March 24, 2014

  • Lisa J.

    I just got off the phone with Willow Grove Farm and they have rescheduled us AGAIN! They tried the trail again this morning and feel it is just too uncertain for the horses...especially with inexperienced riders. With more melt, followed by more cold, they are concerned.

    I am so sorry to have to do this again...but I am at the mercy of the venue.

    We are rescheduled to SATURDAY, MARCH 29th at 2:00 PM. If you cannot make this new date, please reach out to me and I will issue a refund. But please let me know by Friday, March 14th or I may not be able to.

    I hope you can still make it!

    • Janice C.

      I just saw this. I'm okay with the new date as well but if they change it again I will probably have to do a refund because my upcoming weekends are booked. I know you are at the mercy of the venue and it's such a good meetup! Sorry this keeps happening to you but I'm sure safety first is best practice.

      You're too late Diane, that spot was filled moments after it opened. Next time.

    I have a wedding that day but please do this again! My sister and I would love to participate!

    Ouch, 26 people on the wait list, we need a second all most made it meetup at the exact sametime for those who missed out :-)

      I'm with you David. But it has to be a different time because there are only 10 horses.

      February 26, 2014

  • Lisa J.

    For those of you inquiring, there is technically NOT a wait list for this event. When I spot becomes available, I will MANUALLY reach out to people in the order they had expressed interest. If you receive a personal email from me with details and instructions, then you are up. I am sorry for the erroneous system generated notification. That should have never been sent based on the settings for this event.

    February 24, 2014

  • Lisa J.

    POSTPONED! The icy layer under the snow is not safe for the horses. We will reschedule for later in March. I will send an email tonight. :-(

  • Maureen

    Where & what time are we meeting?

    February 13, 2014

    • Maureen

      Hope not! I would still go as long as they're open.

      February 14, 2014

    • Ashley S.

      A lot of horse farms won't close except for maybe lightening because no matter the weather, the horses need to get out to exercise. I don't know this place's policy, but we might be safe by that rationale.

    I put in for the day off at work when I purchased my ticket. If the day isn't approved (I won't find out until the end of Jan) I'll let the first person on the waiting list know if they want to purchase my ticket from me.

      I'm in for a stop at Long Valley Pub after our ride.

      January 29, 2014

  • Barbara

    Oh man I am SO upset that it's full. Please let me know if we can expand just one more person!!

    December 30, 2013

    • Elisabeth

      Hi Lisa! I agree that taking turns, would not be a good idea. Would it be possible to set up a second ride on a different day? I didn't think it would be so popular that it would fill up over a month before the event! I would be willing to host if you didn't want to go twice:)

      January 6, 2014

    • Lisa J.

      We may do it again in warmer weather. :-)

    I met these Clydesdales during a carriage ride in Chester this month. The owners at the farm are the sweetest. Can't wait!

    December 28, 2013

  • Maggie

    Soon as the credit card cools off from the holiday, I'm in!

    December 20, 2013

  • Janice

    What a lovely idea! I took a clydesdale sleigh ride once and its so beautiful! I, too, have to wait until after Jan. 1 paycheck to fund this, so please Lisa: update this posting so we know if there is still room for us "late funders", ok?

    December 18, 2013

  • Jo

    Considering...this would be my first event if ever. How far into the event you need the payment?

    December 18, 2013

    • Lisa J.

      Payment is required with RSVP for this event. Space is limited and spots will be available only until sold out.
