"Gold Rush Farms offers the best trail rides available in Connecticut. The forest adjacent to the farm offers a splendid variety of scenery to make your ride memorable, relaxing, and enjoyable. On my recent ride, my trail guide, Monique, was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful at all times. This is the perfect opportunity for horseback riding pleasure at its best, whether you are a beginner or a lifelong rider. I will definitely be coming back!"
"I just moved my new horse to Gold Rush Farms and I could not be happier. The owner, Monique, has been amazing and so helpful since day one of him arriving on the farm. Since my horse isn't trained under saddle yet, I love having so many different places to work with him including several round pens and a large outdoor arena. I would not want to board my horse anywhere else!"
I arranged for a trail ride for a group of 5 after I won a free trail ride for myself. (Through Project Precious Rescue- great rescue if you are looking for a new dog or cat!) We arrived on a beautiful fall day and we were all so impressed with how we were treated. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The horses were beautiful, healthy and clean. The trail ride was perfect! We all had such a great time and are definitely planning on going again!
"I went to Gold Rush Farms with my fiance to take a lesson and a trail ride. During my lesson the instructor was not only extremely knowledgeable, but also made me feel at ease seeing as I do not have much riding experience! And the trail ride was just the icing on the cake. It was so beautiful and Roy, the horse I was riding, was just so sweet! Not to mention the gorgeous Spring views! My fiance and I had such a wonderful time. I also was so thrilled to learn that all of the guided trail rides were private, which is something that other places I have done trail riding at have not offered. We will definitely be visiting Gold Rush Farms on a regular basis!"
