Join us for a unique horseback ride
through historic lands while you enjoy the beautiful winter
wonderland! You will be transported to another time and place as you
ride through the forests and mountains of a beautiful valley with a
deep, historic gorge where iron mining took place in the mid to late
1800s! You’ll ride up the mountain to the top of the gorge where
you will be able to look down into the wintry valley below. Then you
will ride down into the gorge and between the ominous rocky cliffs.
The terrain is so diverse you will feel like you’re in Colorado!
The *paths you will ride on during this trip are quite unique and
different from most east coast trails and include wide open paths
along with rocky, mountainous single-track trails. During this ride
you will cover approximately 5 miles round trip which will take
approximately 1 1/2 hours depending on how fast your group rides. The
ride will be broken up into beginner, intermediate and advanced
riders and each group will have its own private guide.

After the horseback ride we will visit
a local winery that is nestled in the foothills of the historic
Hudson Valley and is situated between two magnificent mountain
ranges. Each afternoon they play live music and their tasting room
provides the ideal setting for tasting wine, relaxing, and immersing
yourself in the music. The atmosphere of the winery has been referred
to as “a Bit of Tuscany in the Hudson Valley". They
feature a wide range of wines including: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot,
Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay, a Cayuga/Vidal
blend, a Blush, and a Port that goes especially well with cheese,
fruit, and/or chocolate. The distillery is currently producing Apple
and Pear Brandies (eau de vies) and a line of all natural fruit
liqueurs including: Black Currant Cordial, Bourbon Barrel Aged Apple
Liqueur, Grappa Grape Brandy, and Sour Cherry Cordial. These liqueurs
make great mixed drinks and they have a recipe book you can pick up
in their tasting room which you can use for your next dinner party.
They also have hard Apple Cider, Pear Cider, and Raspberry Cider
available for purchase. And if that’s not enough to get your mouth
watering, they also have a bakery with wonderful olive oils and
