We provide guided horseback rides and tours to cideries, breweries, and vineyards in the Charlottesville, Virginia area. Indian Summer Guide Service is fortunate enough to have access to some of the most breathtaking farms, orchards, and vineyards in the region. Each of our private horseback rides is led by one of our knowledgeable guides, who will ensure your safety as well as your enjoyment. After the ride you can make your way to the tasting room to enjoy a cider flight, bottle, or glass and stock up on your favorites. A la carte menu items are available as well as indoor and patio seating.
