Scenic Trail Rides (Ages 8 and older)
Days and evenings during riding season
Step away from the hustle and bustle of the busy day and reduce the noise on one of Ironwood's scenic trail rides! Enjoy nature, flowers and wildlife on horseback near the banks of the Root River. Ironwood Springs has horses suited for every level of rider.


  • Scheduled one hour trail rides are offered Friday/Saturday/Sunday and a few weekday evenings during the trail riding season.  You can check the calendar below for available times and to book a ride.
  • All rides must be scheduled in advance via online or call the barn
  • The 2020 trail ride season will limit trail ride groups to 8 people or less. This allows our team to properly make sure that we have met the CDC guidelines involving cleaning and disinfecting  because of the coronavirus.
  • Groups larger than 8 must call to make a reservation
  • Weather may dictate changes in the schedule. If rides are cancelled due to inclement weather, riders will be given a refund.
  • Prior to Covid-19, Pony Rides have been available for youth ages 7 and under. This summer we will not be offering pony rides.
