For kids or a family who want to ride horses on the island, definitely stop by Cindy's. They take riders of all levels. The Guides are experienced riders and care about the horses.

We traveled to Mackinac with our two teenage granddaughters who were anxious to horseback ride. They had a great time and I was very pleased with the professionalism of the staff. I felt perfectly comfortable letting them ride with a guide while grandpa and I enjoyed a drink!

We went for a two hour tour that took us up into the island, past the Grand Hotel and into the trails. Our guide was wonderful, she talked to us about the nature, her experience of working and living on the island, we also chatted about local gossip which was a fun way to feel more connected to this place....

My kids and I enjoyed our 1hr ride with Cindy's. I rode Joey, my 13yr old son rode Dusty and 10 yr old daughter rode Diamond. All horses were paired with us perfectly. Christy our guide was very friendly and talked with each family for extended period of time during the ride. We walked along paved, gravel and through hilly... More

This is my second time at Cindy's. Staff are nice and encouraging and look like they are having fun too. We went for one hour but wish we went for more. The staff lets you fill out a form to determine what kind of horse you will ride. The trails are beautiful and clean and the horses are friendly. Rides... More

We read about Cindy's on Trip Advisor before arriving on Mackinaw Island so we headed straight there immediately upon arriving since they do not take reservations. It was very easy to find using the map from their website. We arrived at 10:50 am on a Monday and was told that 12:00 would be our ride time. We went around the... More

I've taken many trail rides in various states and countries and Cindy's does the best job at pairing the right horse with the rider. As an experienced rider, twice I've gotten high quality mounts that were responsive and well trained, not just nose to tail followers!

Ok...so I've read the reviews and here's what I think. First of all...I and my husband have ridden there for years. I am an experienced rider and have my own horse....my husband is intermediate ...never had his own horse and has only ridden with me. Horses will be horses no matter how much training they have and no matter how... More

I was nervous about having my right year old ride alone with so many reckless bicycle riders but our guide was awesome, careful and very protective of our safety. The horses were fabulous and our guide had more patience then Job! If you ever go (which I HIGHLY recommend) ask for Mariah as your guide. She is phenomenal with kids... More

Avoid this place! They are rude and nasty and not the slightest bit interested in your business. We had a much nicer experience at Jack's the year before. They sent my wife and I on a trail with lots of fallen branches (large branches). I scraped my back. I tried to tell them about it upon our return, but they... More
