Horseback Riding in Vermont! See the Foliage from a Different Perspective? Head Over to Vermont's Riding Stables!

I've been riding each foliage season in Vermont at various stables and can't wait for my next two riding adventures this autumn. There's nothing like the blissful feeling of galloping down a country road with the wind in your face surrounded by sparkling foliage or taking a trail ride through fields...

Unfortunately, it is a tad early for my Vermont foliage vacation but I will enjoy it nonetheless weather permitting. There is nothing more glorious than to view the full harvest moon arising over...

(And throughout New England for that matter). This morning we left around 9 to make the 11 opening weekend time fram...

Chasing the foliage color change is a gamble; maybe this year it could even follow a normal pattern. I think that your folks would find early color in ...
