Lawton Stables is a delightful place. I was so pleased to see how clean and well kept the facilities were and well cared for the animals were. My husband and children (ages 10 and 12) went on the one hour trail ride. The staff were friendly and well organized. There are lots of horses so you can tell they get... More

I haven't ridden since I was a kid, I'm 48 now! It was so much fun! So easy and exciting. The walking trail ride was in the wildlife preserve section of Sea Pines. We saw heron, crane, alligators, turtles, other birds I'd never seen on the island before. The guides were outstanding and made the ride so enjoyable. We even... More

Great horse trail ride. The only thing I would suggest would be a short training class for those that have never ridden a horse to give a heads up on what to expect. Molly (my horse) was patient with me. Very much appreciate it!

Wonderfully run stable and terrific people.Loved meandering through the 600+ acres of the Sea Pines Forest Preserve on our hour long, escorted Western style trail ride and enjoying the true Lowcountry in its natural setting.

We celebrated my daughter's 3rd birthday with an amazing CowGirl Princess Theme and had the best time ever. The petting zoo was awesome and the unlimited pony rides for all the kids was better than great. The staff was extremely accommodating and flexible to our needs. Everyone had a wonderful time and we reserved a trail rides for adults because... More

We took a spontaneous trip to Hilton Head and made a stop here during our last day. A friend mentioned Lawton Stables without going into detail so my family and I were pleasantly surprised to see a very well kept petting zoo which was free. All of the animals looked well cared for. My daughter wanted to ride a pony... More

We took our five year old daughter and she loved it! The horses,ponies,pigs, deer,cows,roosters etc. were so sweet. She has so much fun riding the pony and feeding the animals. You must visit if you are in Hilton Head!

My daughter has been coming here for over 5 years. She loves riding ponies and visiting Callie the deer at the petting zoo. It is worth the entrance fee to come to Lawton. Enjoy some family time here.

We stumbled upon this place during an exploration of the island drive. So glad we did. It is a very special place. Callie the tame deer is a great hostess! So sweet. The animals are well cared for in the petting zoo. Just the place I needed to get a much needed "critter" fix. Even got a Gray kitty cuddle... More
