Looking to create new memories with your tween & teen buckaroos? Saddle up and experience a Mother’s Day adventure at Whispering Woods Riding Stables! Enjoy the scenic backwoods of Scott County while riding horseback through heavily wooded trails and beside babbling creeks. With the guidance of experienced instructors, you and your child will learn how to ride and communicate with your gentle giants. Be on the lookout for wildlife roaming about. I spied three deer relaxing by the water on my ride. Pack a picnic for lunch and refuel under the shaded pavilion. There is a petting zoo on premises, so bring along a few extra carrots to share with the goats, pigs, and donkeys, oh my!
