Asking for a friend - are there any decent guided trail riding places in and around Northern Virginia? This would be a place that provides guided trail rides to beginners on the establishment's horses. These would not be for experienced horse people (although one has told me he's "ridden" before), or people who own their own horses; however they do want something "more exciting" than walking. So maybe the opportunity for short trot. Years ago, I know The Homestead provided trail rides, and you could choose a "level" - walk, walk/trot, walk/trot/canter. Is something like this available around NoVA? Thanks in advance!
