Purchasing an Annual Permit allows you access to over 400 acres and 21 beautiful trails! Our trail system has a bit of everything: flat easy areas, creek crossings, step over logs, some good hills and more technical trails on the back side. The trails are marked, but if you have any questions please ask at the office.
WHERE TO GO AND WHAT TO D
The payment and sign-in kiosk, horse trailer parking and hitching post are located
to your right as you enter the parking lot. Please follow the signs. Water and hoses are in front of the dairy barn
(see sign that says water as you drive in). Bathrooms are located at Red Fern Riding Center.
Due to insurance and horse health safely, the barn and arena at Red Fern Riding Center
is not open to visiting trail horses. However, we welcome any and all questions,
we can provide trail directions, tell funny horse jokes, or direct you to our commode!
We love making new friends, and are often happy to ride the trails with park visitors.
Annual Permits are $52 through PayPal or by check $50 (appointment only)
made to :Shelbyville/Shelby Co. Parks and Recreation 717 Burks Branch Rd. Shelbyville, KY 40067.
Annual Permits run calendar year Jan - Dec.
A permit application must be filled out and signed.
Proof of current Coggins is required. We will record your Coggins exp date (one year from day drawn)
and give you a metal tag number.
Permit holders can put metal tags on their bridles, saddle or take a picture of them to keep on their phone
Permits go with the rider not the horse. Therefore, if the rider has two horses they need only ONE permit
however, they need to show proof of Coggins for both horses.
Each person who rides needs their own permit (minors included)
Permit holders must sign in (every time the ride) at the kiosk
Day passes are $10 and can be purchased at the kiosk to the right of the barn
