Nothing says romance like a horseback ride through wine country. Yakima Valley is full of horseback riding options, suitable for all abilities and nearly all ages. Cherry Wood offers a variety of packages including winery rides from tasting room to tasting room, or select a cowboy limo tour if February in Yakima proves to be a bit too chilly for an outing.

Red Mountain Trails lets you choose from a wagon ride tour, horseback rides and more—including a brand new winery tour by horseback! Trail rides range from one to three hours, and can include tastings at Kiona Winery and more. Wagon rides start at 20 minutes, or you can upgrade to a wagon ride dinner for $95 per person. Bicycle rentals are also available, whether you simply want a tour, a solo rental, or a tasting package.
