Explore KC - Wild Rose Equine Center Trail Ride

For Mother's Day last year, we decided to take a family horseback ride! We found a Groupon for a ride for four at a local equine center (it was about 40 minutes from our house) called Wild Rose Equine Center and we all LOVED the experience! My kids had never been on a full size horse before, so this was crazy exciting for them!
The Wild Rose Equine Center is located in the middle of the country in Dearborn, MO. We booked our time slot online and it was confirmed through email. The equine center was not busy when we went which was so nice! It is also not huge and overwhelming. A very family friendly place!
We arrived a little early and one of the employees walked us around the grounds. The have cows and donkeys and many horses. She told us about how the ranch functions and we got to pet all the animals. It was kind of a fun little bonus tour! I just started asking questions! I want to teach my kids that that's how you learn!
We were signed up for a 1 hour guided trail ride. Our guide made it fun for the kids and the scenery was so pretty! The staff makes sure everyone is comfortable on their horse and allowed time for the horses to drink water and for everyone to take photos. Our kids never felt scared! They loved it and didn't want it to stop!

It's hard to ride a horse, even on a walking horse, for an hour! Ha! These kids did great! They teach you basics on how to hold the reigns and turn your horse. They also teach you how to lean forward when going uphill and to lean backward going downhill to help with balance.
My kids have already requested to go back again! I would highly recommend the Wild Rose Equine Center! They also offer riding lessons if interested. These are the kind of experiences kids remember, so get out there and try something new!
