My kids have attended this camp for many summers. It is a very laid-back affair. The horses are mostly/all? rescue horses; the dogs are rescue dogs. While the kids get to go on a horseback ride daily, what they really do is learn to take care of the animals, to get dirty, to hang out in a tack room on... More

My 16 year-old daughter was meeting her real father for the first time today. He flew in from Florida yesterday, nervous and anxious. A month ago, he had made reservations for the two of them to take a trail ride that I had suggested as a nice, relaxing first day together. After renting a car, finding their way to the... More

The owner is very friendly and so is the staff. I wanted to go horse back riding for my birthday with my two kids (5 & 8) my sister and her son joined us. The stables were easy to find and when I told them it was my birthday they painted the horse for me. We had the best afternoon.... More

My daughter and I took a 1 hour trail ride which Jeanne led. She gave us interesting info as we went along, was very easy-going, the ride was beautiful and we learned a lot about the island. Price was reasonable too (cash/check only!). I would recommend!

During our family reunion at Peaks Island Maine in August 2013, we decided to take the kids (ages 9 to 11) horseback riding. I contacted Jeanann Alves who owns the camp to set up a ride. She was amazing! Our kids (6 of them) had no experience riding. When we got to the camp she and her staff set up... More

Wow! We just finished a trail ride. It was an amazing experience. The ride was beautiful. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. My daughter was nervous at first, and they made her comfortable and put her mind at ease. She ended up loving it!!!!! We highly recommend this place!

I took my 6 and 8 year old grand daughters to Horse Island Day Camp for a trail ride and it was a very fun experience. The girls had lovely horses guided by friendly and knowledgeable staff. After the trail ride they had an opportunity to groom their horses and spend some time with them. We made a day of... More

Best experience of my life. The o'toole family could not have been more accommodating. If you are visiting peaks island you are missing out if you don't check it out.

This establishment misrepresented its services for trail rides. My husband and I are experienced riders. When we travel across the U.S., we try to find a stable that offers trail rides for adults. We have had wonderful experiences across the nation, including in Alaska, Hawaii, California, Tennessee, Florida, etc. Since this establishment's website had a heavy focus on children's actives...
