After too much sun and sand, we took our grandchildren over to Lawton Stables. We all had a great time. The little ones loved the petting zoo area. We got to talk about all the different animals (rabbits, goats, a deer, horses ect...) and feed them. We took some carrots with us and fed the horses on the way out.... More

We had our three kids on the one hour horseback ride for $65 each and they loved it. a full hour ride along the trails at sea pines. Mom and I sat on the porch in the rocking chairs while the kids rode and we visited the petting zoo for free.

I went early in the morning with 2 grandchildren, 12 & 10, plus their mom; I am grandma and haven't ridden since a teen. The stables and riding areas (woods, ponds, bridges) are beautiful. The horses were gentle and easy to handle. We were at the tail end of a large (14) group tho, so hearing the guide's instructions once... More

This was one of the worst stables I've ever been to. The horses that were being used for trail rides have saddle sores and their withers are all cut up. There is absolutely nothing for them to eat, it is all sand. It is over 100 degrees outside and there are a dozen horses saddled up and tied to posts.... More

Located at the Sea Pines Resort, the Lawton Stables provide a small petting zoo as well as horse/pony rides. The petting zoo - which is free - has a variety of animals: chickens, horses, goats, pigs, llamas. Most, not all, can be petted. Fun for all ages. The trail rides have fees attached to them.

Took my 8 year old horseback riding and she loved it. The staff is amazing. If you are in the middle of the pack, hard to hear the guides but still pretty ride. The horses are very very tame so you can almost just sit!

My husband and I have taken our kids on a trail ride at Lawton Stables for the past four years and it's one of their absolute favorite activities! Our youngest isn't old enough for the ride, but he loves the pony rides and going to the petting zoo. The staff is nice, the trail guides are knowledgeable and the views... More

We love animals so any you put in front of us will be loved, especially Kali the deer. When asking questions about pony rides, I was not impressed with the staff. They will allow an 18 month old on the ponies but not let a parent nearby. That might work for a few but not us. It was fun to... More

My daughter and I went to Lawton for the one-hour trail ride and had a great time. Both of us had very nice horses. The staff was great and treated us very well. The trail ride takes you through the Sea Pines forest reserve and around some small lakes. We saw an alligator along the way as well :) I'd... More

This place is a beautiful, interesting place to take your kids. I do not horse back ride. I take my grand children here to ride the ponies and go to the petting zoo. It is kept so well. The animals are clean and happy. The pony rides are exceptional. I recommend this place to go back over and over again.
