    Have you tried Circle-R-Ranch? I have no idea what they charge but worth a look.

    Cicle R used to do sunday morning trail rides that were very tame for beginners.

    Huh. That is right around the corner from where I board; I've never heard of 'em! Is it the big huge place that's for sale, with the horse statues in front? I thought they had Arabians... I just can't think of where this is!

    I also know that the Dude Ranch near Dutton has gotten favourable reviews from folks I know; it's pretty low key, and they have pony camps, etc., for children as well. I'm not sure about age requirements etc. It's a tough call for a four year old -- awfully young and people won't do much beyond a pony ride like you experienced (an adult would be required to lead, at the very least) because of liability and such.

    What sort of thing were you hoping he would experience, as far as trail riding goes?

    i just want to go for a nice ride in the woods... even with him riding with me...i just don't want to spend $30 to lead him around a barn! even though he had a great time!
    i did check circle r and they have trail rides so maybe i will call and see what they say!

    "Riding with you" ... you mean double? I guarantee that any responsible establishment will not allow that, and will want an adult leading the pony, no matter what (woods, barn, wherever).

    In any case, good luck! Let us know what you find out.

    I'd like to know options for something like this too! Tho I'm fine with an adult leading, and I want a seriously bombproof horse!!
