Our Inn Ride prices include ride with guide, meals, and lodging based on double occupancy.

Deposit: A 50% deposit is due at the time of booking to secure your reservation.

Cancellations: Trip cancellation insurance is recommended. Because the Vermont Icelandic Horse Farm serves a limited number of guests, our cancellation policy is more restrictive than other vacation providers. In order to protect yourself against unforseen circumstances interfering with your Icelandic riding vacation, we strongly suggest that you purchase the trip cancellation insurance of your choice.

Taxes: Rates are subject to 6% state sales tax.

Gratuities: Staff gratuities are pooled and left to your discretion. A gratuity of 12% to 18% is customary if our staff serves you well.

Riders must weigh 200 pounds or less. Children over 10 years old with riding experience are welcome if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

You may also create your own multi-day tour by booking only the ride with us and arranging your own accommodations. Of course, we’d love the opportunity to be your host at our own Mad River Inn.There’s more information here.
