Reflection Riding is now dog friendly! We are happy to announce that our guests can enjoy our trails with their dog now. Visiting dog families should use the drive thru window to pay and enter – just follow the signs! Of course, members may bring their dogs with them to ruff it on the trails from dawn to dusk! Not a member? Join today!
We have a few rules and some dog etiquette to follow to make sure everyone enjoys their experience. We hope to see you and your furry family members soon. Many thanks to our sponsor Nooga Paws!
We place great importance on our four legged friends being well-behaved and under control, so please abide by the following at all times.
- Dogs must be on a leash at all times and never left unattended.
- Clean up after your dog. Our ecosystem is sensitive, please pick up, bag and properly dispose of all waste. Dog waste stations are located around the property.
- Dogs must remain under the owner’s control at all times.
- You are responsible for the actions of your dog. The dog owner is liable for damages suffered by anyone who is bitten or otherwise injured by his/her dog while on Reflection Riding property. Parties involved in an injury should exchange names and phone numbers and report serious incidents to the front desk in the Visitors Center.

Dog etiquette in nature:
