What we offer:
At 15900 W. Perrydale Rd., Sheridan, Oregon, we are located between Amity, Dallas and Sheridan in the midst of farming country. We are within a 35 minute driving distance from McMinnville or Salem. The three miles of gravel road to our farm is well-maintained and mostly flat.
Half of our land is farmed for grass hay. The trail course obstacles range over the rest of the acreage. Our property sits on top of gently rolling hills surrounded by miles of farmland, with mountains on all horizons.
You'll enjoy a million dollar view as you ride through Perrydale Trails, as well as a welcome sense of peacefulness. Leave behind the hustle and noise of the city; you will appreciate the big sky, the incredible quiet, the spaciousness ....
There are several levels of expertise in our trail obstacles. Riders learn how to evaluate obstacles/scenarios and how to best prepare for accomplishment.
The areas are nicely spaced to give you and your horse a bit of relaxing time as you travel from one to the other. There are directional signs for the areas.
Perrydale Trails has all the means to prepare your horse to be the partner you've always wanted.
When you get here:
- Perrydale Trails has a wide entrance and driveway, easily handling any size rig.
- Depending on weather, horse trailer parking is either in a spacious graveled area or in a three acre mowed field, with plenty of room for large crowds.
- Water for you and your horse is located in both parking areas. Clean portable restrooms are available.

- For our far-away guests, overnight stabling/camping is offered at nearby stables and here.
First-time visitors to Perrydale Trails must sign a liability waiver and will receive a map of our courses along with some general rules to follow. After you and your horse are warmed up, you'll receive a personal tour of the trail courses.
YES, to the many who have asked about leading their young horses through the courses. In-hand provides an excellent opportunity to take obstacle training a little slower and calmer.
Just be aware we have hills and that our courses are spread out. So, wear appropriate footwear and prepare your walking muscles!
