G & L FARMS
-Ranch Riding Lessons/Classes, Horse Care Lessons/Classes, & Trail Rides
Our Wrangler will lead you beside meandering creeks and even to a little waterfall on the property. Even on a hot sunny day the wooded trails are cool and enjoyable. You will ride upon our beautiful, well-groomed and well-cared-for performance quarter horses in the shade of the Alabama Woods. G and L horses have different little personalities and yet, they still listen so well to cues from even beginners.
They are able to neck rein and even ride bit less on your ride! Our gentle, steady horses make our TRAIL RIDES very pleasant and enjoyable, whether you are a BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, or ADVANCED RIDER. We also offer HORSE CARE, TACKING, & a Mini-Riding Lesson in our TRAIL RIDE CLASSES for ALL AGES AND ALL LEVELS OF RIDING EXPERIENCE.
If being a cowboy is your dream we have pastures with cattle that we raise on the farm! We would love to take you on the trails to see the cattle! The view from up there is AMAZING!
