We arrived at the stable first thing upon opening at the recommendation of the employees. This was my first time riding a horse and I absolutely loved it. My husband and I rode with a small group and a guide for a short time, and then were able to wander off on a wooded trail by ourselves to find our... More

Since we brought our own bicycles, we decided to rent horses on the island for a change of pace. Cindy's Stable is a short bike ride and/or walk from the main ferry dock of Mackinac Island. You fill out a form asking you what experience you have on horseback and what type of horse you would like (a leader horse,... More

If you possess even a hint of horse skill, make sure and rent one of the fabulous horses from Cindy's. Their guide will take you up to the state park and provide general directions. From there you are on your own with a great network of paved, gravel and dirt trails. The horses know every inch of the island but... More

This is the second time I rode at Cindy's. The horses are delightful, the guides informative and the scenery takes your breath away! If you like riding horses, Cindy's is the place to go!

My first time riding horses on the island, and my fiance's first time on a horse. His horse was pretty grimy though. Overall it was totally fantastic! Glad we only did the hour ride, we were totally saddle sore! But it was so worth it!

Cindy's is a well-run stable with great horses. My daughter was 8 last August, but she had a few riding lessons under her belt at that point, so we stopped in to talk with the staff. They sized her up, took into consideration her horse sense and riding abilities (and the fact that she travels with her own boots and... More

What amazing ride. I have a horse my self. Everyone at that place was so helpful. As my family came from North Dakota for a family trip we wanted to ride around the island. My mother is kind of scared of horse but she got on one and she loved it. I think she love it because of the lady... More

Riding a horse on Mackinaw Island is a unique experience and one that I had not anticipated, but when the seventeen year old showed an interest we jumped in. The staff sizes you to a good fitting horse and will stay with you if you wish- we wished. I was a bit nervous every as the last time I was... More

The highlight of our trip to Mackinaw Island was a one hour horseback ride through the woods and a residential area that we likely would not have visited unless on horseback. Our guide, Mariah, was friendly and informative. We recommend taking a guide with you as it improves the experience though they do not require you to take a guide.... More

I had so much fun doing this with my husband. The horses are so easy to work with so even beginners can ride with ease. I would definitely do this again.
