One of the things that makes the Island so special is the fact that horses are the main mode of transportation. So it seems reasonable that the family takes a horsey ride. However, the horses at Cindy's Stable are not nice at all. Okay, some...More

Staff was friendly. We were able to go off on our own which is hard to find these days. Horses knew the ropes. Highly recommended.

We have gotten ourselves hooked on a Saddle Horse Ride every trip to the Island. The staff is always very helpful and courteous. Whether you are experienced or a novice, they can get you fixed up. If you haven't done it yet, try it once.

This was the highlight of my visit. The people working at the stable were very friendly and helpful. They matched me with a great horse and I had a quiet, peaceful ride through the woods. I highly recommend this riding stable.

Hi Shelilah! As long as they're big and strong enough to handle steering and stopping a horse, kids 10 and up can ride their own horse by themselves. We do not require an adult to accompany children, but we strongly... More
Is there any possibility to bringing your own horse to the Island?

You can contact the Mackinac Horseman's Association (just google them). They will board horses. Not sure if they have a minimum for how long you have to have them there. Also check with Arnold line ferry on the cost and... More

My sister is mentally handicapped. Will they let her ride with me on the back of my horse, and if so, do they charge extra for two riders on one horse?

Response from Danielle W |
