Mom and daughter on Expedition Everest

    We are coming in Oct and I would love to take the family horse back riding. I see that Tri-Circle-D Ranch provides trail riding. Does anyone know what the age requirements are? My youngest child is going to be 8 and my oldest 12. Neither have much exp.

    While my kids have done the pony rides at Tri-Circle-D, we've yet to experience the trail rides, Christina.  It is on my Disney wishlist, though!  I just got off the phone with a Cast Member who deals with all things recreation.  Unfortunately, your youngest child is just a smidge to young to experience the trail rides at Fort Wilderness.  I was told that the minimum age for participation is nine.  I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news.  The good news is that Fort Wilderness does indeed offer a wide variety of recreational opportunities (think along the lines of watercraft rentals, carriage rides, and fishing).  I hope you are able to find a suitable alternative.  Good luck and have fun!
