Who We Are

We are Tara and Tess Wesolowski and together we are Applegate Trail Rides.

Born and raised in MI, we moved to Southern Oregon in 2016. Tara stayed year round and focused on teaching yoga, veggie gardening, and exploring all the beauty that Southern Oregon has to offer. Tess came back every winter, between back country packing in Idaho, guiding rides into the Grand Canyon, and managing a corral in Glacier National Park.

We both have a lifetime of experience with horses, and it is our goal to make horseback riding a fun, comfortable, and memorable experience for everyone we take out.

Our Team

Our horses are sweet, gentle, and laid back. Well trained and experienced, they are suited for any level of rider. They love to hit the trail and are ready to take you out today!

Copper is a VIP member of our team. Sweet and calm, this quarter horse is always a fun ride. Copper has a history working with cattle, and being a kids horse.
Dolly is an all-star mule! This girl loves to hit the trail and has spent lots of time in the back country where she's spent hundreds of miles packing and riding.
Taco is a spunky Paso Fino horse. This guy loves to go! He was originally trained to be in the show ring, but that all changed when he came to us. Now he is a trail horse extrordinare!
Benny is a great Hackney/cross pony. He is a smart, gentle guy. He has a mysterious past, this little guy was a rescue. Time and time again, Benny has proven that he can keep up with the big horses on any trail!
Starlight is our beauty queen. Easy to fall in love with. Her calm and sweet personality is sure to win over your heart.
Chief is one of our bigger horses. He is strong and steady. Chief has spent most of his life as a trail horse and he loves his job!

We've been getting asked this question more as the seasons change, and the answer is..
🙌We are open year round!!!🙌
(Weather permitting)
As long as it is safe to ride, we would love to take you out. Seriously, look at that face. If you've met Dolly you know she loves her job. No way she's taking a whole season off 😂

There is something special about a persons first time on a horse. It is inspiring to watch someone face their fears when getting on, and hop off the horse comfortable and smiling when we're done.❤️🧡💛💚 ... See MoreSee Less
