My family just visited South Lake Tahoe and had a fantastic 1-hour horseback and dinner ride with amazing views of the lake at Zephyr Cove Stables. This is run by wonderful people--Dwight and Louise, with Kate as our team guide and numerous helpers and cooks. It is located off Hwy 50, just 4 miles from the South Lake Tahoe casinos.... More

Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Even if you've never been on a horse, they will make you feel comfortable. My 8 year old son did not feel comfortable on the horse as they were leaving and they had no problem letting him down and refunding us. I highly recommend.

We took our foreign exchange student on this ride for his 1st trip to Tahoe. Did the lunch/ride. Not cheap. We had a great guide (April) and the ride was lovely. The food was just okay, but it was part of the experience.

Riding horses is unfamiliar territory for our family. We were up in Tahoe for a baseball tournament and decided to experience something new as a family. The Zephyr Cove staff was awesome from Louise at reservations to Tucker, our guide. We arrived and were greeted by friendly staff. We were introduce to our horses as we mounted them. The staff...

Its not their specialty, but they took our three girls under 6 on a short trail and they loved it! My three year old is still talking about it a year later. The guides were great, and everyone was wonderful. Cant wait to go back!

Did a 2-hour ride (ended up being more like 2.5 hours) and it was fantastic! Views are amazing, and the forest is so peaceful and beautiful. The challenging terrain was well handled by the lovely horses, who are mostly retired rodeo kids' horses, according to our guide Lexi. Lexi was very friendly, knew the area extremely well (she's been working... More

The office is staffed which means when you call for information or reservations, you get someone. Not always a given at a riding stable. I would make a reservation in July/August for sure.This stable is located in the pines so it is a little shaded. It has a restroom, a little rustic, but it's the old west. There are lots... More

My family (wife and two daughters ages 10 and 8) and I took and hour long ride at Zephyr Cove. We chose it due its relative proximity to our hotel and the Lake. We had gone horseback rising twice before. Phone reservations were good. The woman answering the phone was very nice. We were able to adjust our reservation to... More

We have been here few years ago and then again now, my daughter grew up since then but still loves the horses. This is a great experience for any child, also for us - adults!
