Just forty minutes from Fenton Inn is Star B Stables that is near Staunton, Va. The property is large and well kept. You can make reservations for horseback riding lessons even if you never tried before. They accept children from 6 year of age.
Saddled up and ready. The platform makes it easy to climb up in the saddle even for the novice rider.
Two pony tails, not sure which one is longer.
The trail loops around through the fields, woods and even a river, but the horses know the way back to the barn. Entire trails takes about one hour. Kids really enjoyed their first lesson.
