Rented a horse and carriage today. Did the hour loop. Our horse, Mabel, was very easy going and knew the route well. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended! Tip - they opened at 9am and we arrived around 9:45. Didn't have a problem getting a horse and carriage right away. It was nice taking the route at this... More

Second time touring the island with our own private horse and carriage, it is the only way that I will tour the island everything is done on your own pace. Next time we will take the lake shore route I am sure that it is also fantastic!!

For a couple of months before our trip my wife would not stop talking about being able to rent a horse and buggy on Mackinac. She was really looking forward to a jaunt around the island. (She is fairly expert at driving and has two driving equines and carriages.) When we came in to rent she was quite pleased when... More

Great place to rent a horse or a horse-drawn carriage. My 12-year old granddaughter had asked to go to Mackinac Island for her birthday present. After riding bikes around the island and going up the 270 steps to Arch Rock, we stumbled across the riding stable. We went on the one-hour horseback ride which was good; it went through trails...

We stayed only two days on the Island so we wanted to do very unique experiences that we weren't likely to see again. Driving our own horse and buggy was a perfect fit. They assigned us "Jerry" and he was a perfect gentleman, er, gentlehorse. They were totally correct in telling us the horse knows what he is doing and... More

You make think it is a bit overwhelming to do the buggy ride in our day ... but it was fun and exciting! The horses are well trained and are very easy to work with. Where else you going to do something like this again?

We rented a buggy and horse to drive around (we drove!) the island to sightsee. A perfect experience, a perfect afternoon. The staff at Jack's was awesome and couldn't be more accomodating. Our horse experience was not scared of a horse but limited in experience; we were provided a veteran horse that trotted us around the island. Great memory for... More

We rented a house and carriage. I have experience with horses but not driving a carriage. I thought I would be given more instructions than I received. The horses shoe needed replaced. The horse walked the entire time and she seemed tired. I did not have the horse trot because I thought it needed a rest. The man, Buck at... More

We go riding ever year on the island. We had 4 people riding and 2 were experienced riders. We had requested to have our neice be the lead who would be riding Lily who was supposedly a lead horse. We were doing the ride without a guide. The guide always gets you started and I don't know why they didn't... More

My wife and I are experienced equestrians and own our own horses. The folks working here did a really great job of matching the right people to the right horses. The horses for beginners seemed well fitted to the families on them, and we had the sheer luxury of being turned out to trail ride with saddle horses that were... More
