Equine Adventures


The Experience

At the Lodge at Blue Sky, we practice a specific style of natural horsemanship that focuses on communicating and working with each horse and its unique personalities. We are excited to offer equine experiences that provide an opportunity to learn more about our horsemanship practices and how we care for train, and ride our horses. Our trail rides are among our most sought-after experiences at Blue Sky and we strongly encourage guests to book their rides well in advance. In addition to trail rides, we also offer unique horsemanship lessons, equine wellness experiences, and much more.

The Cowboy Way

  • Experience an introduction to the philosophy and practice of natural horsemanship as you explore the essence of the human/horse relationship through nonverbal communication, action and perception. Arrive seeking an understanding of a horse and leave with a powerful connection, deeper understanding and enriching sense of realignment. Guests will work through what we call "groundwork" which will build a foundation of communication and then practice newly found skills in the saddle.
