Offering Some Great Early Bird Savings!
To everyone we’re opening a stable soon in the Gore Mtn. area near Minerva, just call !
I would like to thank everyone for your support over all the years. Many of you are aware that I work with people of all ages with all types disabilities. With this past spring being so wet, making it another short season. And donating the amount rides I do, made it tough to save enough money to buy the rather expensive paraplegic saddles. This year I want to work more with paraplegics, with veterans of coarse, but anyone who has difficulties sitting a horse without the extra support a paraplegic saddle can offer. 5% of all long rides booked early will go towards helping purchase the paraplegic saddles.
At this time I’m offering some great deals on half day rides for 2014, I’m adding time to my half day rides, it may be closer to four hrs. You’ll have a little extra time to have maybe a grilled lunch, a longer time to relax at the beach, or be able to ride your horse in the lake longer. You might even add a lunch of grilled cabobs with several choices of shrimp, scallops, chicken, filet what ever you choose. With just a small extra charge to cover the food. Right now these prices are good through 12/15. Shirts can also have a picture of you or one of your children on a horse. A picture you liked from mine or your own photos on a horse, can be imprinted on a shirt, might be a nice thought for a Christmas gift for anyone.
(2) Half day rides – $180 ($90 savings)
(4) Half day rides – $275 – ( a $245 savings) rides can be used as you choose, split up as individual presents, whatever you want do, they come as four individual gift certificates, please call with any questions !
The purchase of each of the double rides sold will include two long sleeve cotton shirts with a couple of different logos to choose from. And if you would like to buy a shirt for 17.50 the profit of the shirt will go towards the purchase of saddles for paraplegics for vets, cancer patients, anyone who has lost their ability to keep their balance, and would enjoy a ride on a horse through the Adirondack wilderness.
I am also looking to raise money to purchase saddles for paraplegics so those with more serious disabilities can enjoy a ride. 5% of the income raised through the half day ride deals will go towards the saddles. Any donations someone makes towards the saddles would also be welcomed. The many Veterans I spoke with that rode this year stated how much working with paraplegic vets would help them and these saddles would allow them to experience that ride on a horse.
I have some news for all the people who have rode and supported us all these years. Coming into 2014 makes it 30 years I have been running Adirondack Saddle Tours and 26 years of working with people with disabilities. I’ve tried for several years to take a few horses to Sarasota, Fl in the winter to be able to work with adults and children with disabilities. Hopefully by mid February I may have three horses in that area, they have opened certain parts of the beaches in the Sarasota Bradenton area. Also not far from Sarasota is Myakka State Park, it’s one of the States larger bird sanctuary’s on the west coast of Florida and they have a lot of new facilities for horses with 14 miles of maintained horse trails .
I want military vets active or not to know we will do whatever necessary for them to enjoy a ride. I offer more of a discounts for vets and there family’s, and I will do my best to work with any with special needs.
Some big news is this year we will be opening a stable in the North Creek area which is about 15 minutes from Gore Mountain Ski area. A good friend Colin Maury’s Farm is near the town of Minerva and his friend Andy Archambeau, will be helping him. These horsemen will insure that you have a safe and wonderful experience. They have some beautiful areas to ride and if you are in the area or are going to be up to Gore ski area why not also enjoy an hour or so horseback ride. The woods are so beautiful this time of year with the snow hanging on the pines and the silence and solitude like no other. This kind of peace is hard to find anywhere. The Adirondack wilderness is one of the most beautiful places in the world and you are able to see so much more of it from the back of a fine horse making it that much more enjoyable.
The holidays are approaching and I am offering some great deals on gift certificates offering at more than a 30% discount including the long sleeve shirts shown above on the purchase of two rides. On the purchase of four rides without shirts it’s close to a 50 % savings or you can purchase the shirts directly and all the profit goes to helping us purchase the paraplegic saddles. I’m donating 5% of all income towards the purchase of saddle for paraplegics. Happy and safe Holidays to all ! Thanks again for every ones support this year ! John Evans
I have a wonderful group of horses and guides that are both very patient. We will work hard to make sure you feel comfortable stopping, turning, and feeling confident of controlling your horse before we leave the yard.
If you are someone that may be a bit timid or younger, we will put a lead on your horse to be sure you feel safe. To see some of our recent rides take a look at our Facebook link below with our more recent guests.
