This is a must do! We rented our own carriage and took it for a couple hours. The horse knew where he was going. Sewers along for the ride. My kids thought this was the coolest thing and is still talking about it!

We took a self driven buggy ride from here. The staff did a great job of explaining how to handle the horse and buggy. Interesting once in a lifetime experience.

Loved it! Staff was very friendly and helpful! We got the 2 person carriage and dos the 1.5 hour trail, it was so much fun! Jerry(the horse) was a little on the slower side but it was a good speed to tour the island. We will definitely go back! Thank you Jacks for a wonderful memory for my wife and... More

Even with no experience with horses, Jack's let's you take a horse and carriage out by yourself! Or should I say, the horse takes you out. Our horse Gerry let me think I was in control, but he really didn't need me to make the 1.5 hour trip. If you want a relaxing (and slow) tour of the Island, Jack's... More

Our experience from beginning to end was great. We optioned for the self-guided tour, I had limited experience with a horse/carriage but it was not an issue. From the time that we booked in, the staff was extremely thorough with planning our trip and landmarks to look for and keep us on track. Highly recommend this business

I will never visit the island again WITHOUT going to Jack's livery. I have visited the island several times before but this was my first time trying this. The staff really takes their time and makes sure you are 100% comfortable before going off on your own. The horses are so well trained and really know all of the paths... More

Jake's Livery is an amazing adventure. This was my favorite experience on the Island. The staff is very informative and do not leave you alone until you feel comfortable. It is a great adventure for families with kids and also older individuals that are not able to bike or walk around the Island. I can't wait to do it again!... More

This was our third time using Jack's Livery. They are so nice and helpful. We rented a horse and carriage for a beautiful, peaceful hour and a half ride about the island. We had a wonderful time!

Jacks allows you to drive a carriage. This is a fun and wonderful opportunity. They ask about your experience with horses and ours was limited. Our horse was Pudge and he was mainly a walker which was great for amateurs like us. They provide brief instructions and off you go. The horse knows the way so you will not get... More
