While visiting the Adirondacks and Lake Placid be sure to include horseback riding for one of your most memorable of your vacation activities. Family run, we offer the gentlest horses in the area and unlike most stables we keep them through retirement. We also run a Horse Rescue, and most of our horses came from auctions and other, unfortunate circumstances. Rides are approximately 45-50 minutes with an additional instructional lesson prior to the ride to help you familiarize yourself with how the horses have been trained and answer any questions you may have. Longer rides available for year 2012. SEI certified helmets provided. Children and Family friendly. We are an easy drive from Saranac Lake, Keene, Wilmington, Plattsburgh, and Essex areas. Walking distance from Main Street in Lake Placid.

We signed up for a ride near Saranac Lake area. They screwed our start time up because it is a remote area (electricity was out), so we had to wait for over an hour. The staff was great, very knowledgable, and you can tell they love these horses. Horses were extremely friendly, and easy to ride. We had a great... More

My daughter and I enjoyed the 1.5 hour trail ride through the woods near Lake Clear, about 15 minutes from Lake Placid. There is an amazing view of Whiteface at the top of the hill. The staff is knowledgeable and cares deeply for the horses. Great ride and saftey conscious. Ask for directions to Donnelly's Ice Cream after the ride!

I actually felt the vibes from what once happened here when the Olympic opening ceremonies and closing happened on this site. The flame burns marks are still view able truly amazing after all these years. See if you get that feeling. Must see!
