We visited the island in May staying at the Grand Hotel. We had them pack us a picnic lunch and walked down the hill to Jack's to check out our options. Both of us had ridden horses when we were younger, but nothing within the last 20 years. We had to wait as there was a couple in front of... More

What a great way to see the island! The staff was extremely helpful. We took an hour tour but stretched it to 1-1/2hrs. We had the 2 person buggy and a nice horse named Dan. He pulled our buggy with ease and grace. It was so easy to handle the carriage and it was my first time driving one. They... More

Had a wonderful experience. Top notch instructions, easy to follow map and a superbly trained horse made for an unforgettable ride. The hands were quick to help my 83 year old mother into the carriage and everything went great! They try to match your horse experience with the right animal. I would highly recommend Jack's.

Although I have had hoses and have ridden for years, I have always wanted to drive a team. My husband swallowed his fears (and disdain for horses) and I drove a carriage around Mackinac! I think the staff did a good job of matching me with Frieda based on each of our abilities but I was surprised on the little... More

We utilized Jack's for a horseback ride and a carriage rental. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rates are the same as Cindy's, but Cindy's staff is surly (we went there first, but decided not to use them). Jack's made sure that we had the right horses for our ability and the right horse to pull 5 adults in... More

My husband and I both own saddle horses and decided to rent a carriage and driving horse from Jack's Livery. What a wonderful experience we had. The staff was fantastic and the horses are all well cared for. We were assigned Maybelle. She was a great horse. She would trot when you asked, walk when you asked and stop at... More

Although owned horses for many years, have never driven a carriage. This was by far a lovely experience, made better by the staff, the location, and of course, Dan, the horse! The horses were in great shape, obviously well cared for and loved by the staff. Teddy did a great job of explaining the route around the island and Dan... More

my family loves to ride the horses, but in August, they are often busy, so some flexibility with time of day etc... and you'll be sure to have a good experience. The guide is very courteous too and very affordable.

Staff treated us well and horse seemed to know the way. We deviated from the usual route just a bit and it took a firm hand to convince the horse to go the way we wanted. But, no problems, A fun and unusual experience. I wouldn't try this in the city, but on a island, one can only get so... More

My husband and I enjoyed our private drive-yourself carriage ride. We were given great instruction on how to operate the carriage as well as a well-timed out map for the hour trip we were looking to take. Our horse, Maybelle, was a perfect match for beginner drivers like us. It was a unique way to see the sites and experience... More
