We offer family-friendly public horseback riding for ages 3 and up. We have rides that are 1 hour or 1.5 hour and we are open May - October each year. We also offer therapeutic riding for persons with disabilities which runs year-round. We were formerly called Rainbow Ranch and have been owned and operated by the same family since 1949.

Hour Ride
Oct 2021 • Friends
This was my first time riding a horse and it was amazing! It was the best experience ever and I would recommend anyone and everyone to take a day and come here to horseback ride. These horses or super well trained, and obedient. Then the staff were so kind and welcoming. They made sure everyone was together and that everyone was enjoying it. Definitely was peaceful as you go through the forest, it is an experience you do not want to miss. I will for sure be coming back again next year!

Great Experience!
Sep 2021 • Family
Our young daughters loved it, though it’s a little slow for the more experienced rider. Overall we enjoyed it and loved going through the woods and seeing deer!
The staff were very friendly!

Wonderful Experience!!
Aug 2021
Our whole family signed up for an hour long trail ride on Stony Lake Stable's website and our experience was AMAZING!!!
The staff was obviously very busy on our arrival, but they were attentive, extremely nice and very hard working.
Our ride was led by Brandy and we also had another employee with two of the smaller children. Brandy was very personable and memorized all of the names of the kids on our ride and engaged in conversations with them during our entire ride between teaching us what to do on the trail. She made the experience so much fun for the kids who started off a little nervous.
The horses are all very well cared for and so kind and a huge perk was seeing all of the deer in the fields/forests along the trails - we had no idea that Stony Lake Stables also has deer on their farm!
I would highly recommend going to Stony Lake Stables if you are in the area....I didn't want to leave and could have gone on the trails over and over!
Also, be sure to wear close-toed shoes, pay the $1.00 to feed your horse after the ride and tip the hard-working staff after your ride is over. They absolutely deserve it.

Fun for the whole family
Aug 2021
We visited this week while we were staying in Ludington. It was great! We had two adults and five kids, raging from 12 to 3 and they all loved it. The way they handled the younger kids was great and they loved being on their own horse but having a wrangler right there with them. Highly recommend!

Loved every minute
Aug 2021
We had the absolute best experience at Stony Lake Stables. We were able to get in pretty last minute and the staff was incredibly accommodating. The trail was beautiful, guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Our 8-year old son and 6-year old daughter loved every minute and it was worth every penny.
