Rebel’s Run in Afton combines two enjoyable activities—wine tasting and horseback riding—with their Vineyard Ride. Saddle up one of Rebel’s Run’s beautiful horses and take a fun, leisurely two and a half hour trail ride, ending with a wine tasting at Afton Mountain Vineyards (one of Virginia’s very first farm wineries). Not only is the wine delicious, but the view is extraordinary, reflecting the vineyard’s assertion that “grapes don’t grow in ugly places.”
So, who are the horses that will be taking you through Virginia’s breathtaking scenery? Their names are Mariposa, Cheyenne, Pocahontas, Cisco, and of course, Rebel. These horses are award-winning, well-trained mounts, so even if you’re not an experience rider, you’ll feel completely at ease in the saddle. Once you’ve blazed the Valley trail from astride your horse, you can celebrate a successful journey with a glass or two of local wine, toasting your equine adventure.
Happy trail riding!
From the Author: I love wine, and I enjoy horseback riding, so Rebel's Run is the perfect combination of the two. Mimi Paixao is a fantastic, knowledgeable host, and her horses become more like friends rather that mounts. Overall, this is a unique experience for anyone visiting this area of Virginia and I highly recommend it!
