Little Valley Rider's Club

Share this

The Little Valley Riders Club was started in 1952 and the families who started it are still there keeping it going.

The Little Valley Riders Club was started to promote Horsemanship and Family Fun. They have around 40 adult members and too many kids and grand-kids and great-grand kids to count. They host trail rides, family gatherings and other events to keep the future of horsemanship going. They keep their events going with the hard work and dedication of all their  members.

 Their clubhouse is located in the town of Little Valley, New York where they have access to trails on New York State land that have been kept up by the owners of The Cross Patch Horse Ranch, Dolly and Jim Little. The Pat McGee trail is located directly behind their property. It is an old railroad bed and is perfect for beginner riders, buggies, stagecoaches and even just a walk to go fishing. They have marked mapped horse trails. They are located only 15 minutes from many attractions: Seneca Allegheny Casino, Salamanca Rail Museum, Coach Inn Restaurant, Ellicottville with Holiday Valley and HoliMont, and the New York Amish Trail.

You are welcome to join their families and make your own memories.  Camping is available with pre-registration.

Annual trail rides held over Memorial Day Weekend and Labor Day Weekend. 

Annual Ride 'n Learn held in July with vendors and horse related demonstrations.

Top 10 site for Steelhead Fishing

Cattaraugus Creek has been listed in the top 10 sites for Steelhead Fishing (rainbow trout fishing) by 2 outdoor magazines. Steelhead Trout AKA Rainbow trout are very similar to Salmon in both taste and habits. Unlike other areas of the United States, our native Rainbow trout (Steelhead Trout) spend a majority of time in Lake Erie a freshwater lake and spawn in the Cattaraugus Creek and other tributaries.

The following is from the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation's article "Steelhead Fishing in Lake Erie Tributaries"

Lake Erie's tributary streams, both big and small, receive an annual run of migratory rainbow trout called "steelhead." From October through April, thousands of steelhead ascend New York's Lake Erie tributaries on their mission to spawn. Excellent fishing opportunities await any angler who wishes to try their hand at steelhead fishing. Between the acrobatic leaps, long drag-screaming runs and rod quaking head shakes, the fight of an early run steelhead is a truly exhilarating experience.
