The horses that work at this farm are known for their gentle nature. They are very well looked after, and guests will notice this as the horses are well-mannered and trained. If the weather is not conducive, then indoor riding is available. Reservations are preferred, so please go to the website or contact them directly via phone.

This is a small, intimate stable. If you are looking for something that is personal and not too busy, then this is the place for you. The trails that are on offer with this stable are breathtaking. They go through the forest and can get quite rugged.
There are weight, experience, and height restrictions, so it is best to check this out before planning on booking a ride here. All rides must be set up by appointment, so please plan ahead to avoid disappointment. Rides will not be permitted without reservation.
Ellinger’s Farm boasts a wonderful indoor riding area. This is great for when the weather is unpredictable. There is also an outdoor area for when the weather is good. Ellinger’s Farm is an ideal place to hold celebrations like birthday parties or Christening parties.
If you are interested in visiting this farm, then please contact them directly as it is by reservation only.

(Hocking Hills Horse Rides, Bloomingville) We had such an amazing time on our trail ride. The family owned business was very accommodating. They were able to schedule a ride that fit during our trip. We really enjoyed meeting the horses and getting to know their history prior to the ride. We loved the fact that these are rescue horses, and you can tell how much they are loved by the family who runs this business. Highly recommended. If we return to the area, we would totally book with them again.Noelle L (TripAdvisor)
