You’ll also have an opportunity to feed Amy’s horses, Koko and Amigo, some carrots and learn a little about horses.

Each tour is customized to meet the needs and interests of the group that shows up, which means each tour/workshop will be slightly different.

Can be a pre-scheduled tour already on our calendar, or a pop-up tour. Pop up tours usually happen when guests to the Mad River Valley arrive and just find out about our tours. As long as we aren’t already booked, we can create a new tour for your group. Minimum 2, maximum 15. 10AM-12PM. Book your tour here.
