Vineyard Trail Ride Package

The trail ride is safe for all levels of riders enthusiastic to ride horses in a new place. The route takes you on a peaceful scenic tour of the historic Fulkerson Farm and Vineyards through orchards and forest, past ponds and historic barns, and even through the rows of grapes themselves culminating with a breathtaking view of Seneca Lake overlooking endless rows of grapes.

Upon dismount, riders head to the winery where wine tasting awaits them. With their tasting will be a selection of local cheese from Lively Run Dairy, Sunset View Creamery, and Yancy's Fancy.

On the way out riders can have their choice of a bottle of wine of wine to take with them.*

*Some exceptions apply to the choice of wine.

Vineyard Trail Rides


All rides are by request and reservation only.

We do not do instant bookings.
This is because we like to know more information about you to select appropriate horses and to ensure that you are being paired with other riders who have common goals
(for example, not putting bachelorettes with honeymooners).
Your ride WILL NOT BE BOOKED until you receive notification from us and pay your invoice.

No vineyard rides in late July or August due to horseflies and heat

Every day that we are at the Vineyard we will be conducting one morning and two evening rides, each with 4 riders. This gives us a maximum of 12 riders each day so understand that our availability is HIGHLY limited!

Rules and General Understandings

Rides will be limited to only four riders on each ride to ensure more social distancing throughout the experience.

All rides WILL start on time. It is IMPERATIVE that you arrive 10 to 15 minutes early to sign waivers and get fitted for helmets prior to the start time of your ride. The Fulkerson Winery is located in a rural area on the wine trail. Please plan for traffic delays caused by tractors and farm equipment, buses and other large vehicles and nearby winery events.

The trail ride package for $175 is all inclusive. No items can be exchanges or discounts are available.

Every package is inclusive of a $50 non-refundable deposit. You have until 2 days (48 hours) of your ride to cancel and receive a partial refund. Within 48 hours of your ride we cannot offer a refund.

Rider Requirements:

All Levels of riders are allowed to join our vineyard tours. These rides focus on the scenery and the experience, rather than adventure, making them the perfect peaceful ride for any level of rider.

Adults 21+ Only are allowed on the vineyard tours. Because of the setting and alcohol included in the package, only persons aged 21 and over are allowed to ride.

Weight Limits do apply. Because we can only transport a limited number of horses to the vineyard from our stables we will only have one horse available to carry riders up to 250 lbs. and another able to carry up to 220 lbs. The rest of the horses will only be able to carry up to 200lbs.
