Take the opportunity to see the beautiful Cascade Mountains from a different perspective: high in the saddle! Wild at Heart Horse Rides in Leavenworth Washington offers horseback rides for all riding abilities, experienced to beginner, young and old alike. We are nestled in a quiet valley 25 minutes from downtown Leavenworth and only 2.5 hours from Seattle. We limit our rides to 5-6 people for a more intimate experience. We offer complimentary water and ride from our barn into the canopied forest on privately owned trails. Experience mountain meadows bright with seasonal wildflowers, Beaver Creek and stunning views of the Cascade Mountains and iconic Lake Wenatchee.
Our horses are part of our family and we strive to ensure their happiness and comfort along with yours. Our horses live a very natural lifestyle and spend their days off out in a large field. We ride without bits and thanks to our dirt trails and the help of a professional barefoot farrier, our entire herd is kept "barefoot" - i.e. no horseshoes, which allows a more natural gait and cadence. Each ride begins with an instructional demonstration on horseback to help make us better partners in the saddle.
