Me and my kids have a great time. This was our first time riding a horse, was worth every penny. Beautiful view but you cant bring your camera or phones with you.

I have been going to Saddle Up Stables for two years now. I love this facility for the amazing care they take of their horses and the friendliness of the entire staff, especially Lisa. I have been there this summer at least five or six times and would pay more if they asked for it. Each time I go I... More

Cute experience for the kids the pony ride is short 5 minute ride for about 12 dollars. My daughter thought it was fun. My husband went on the 1 hour ride on the horse. It was 55 dollars which I didn't think was bad for an hour. Down side... Only kids older than 7 can go on the trail ride... More

My 5 year old was so thrilled to get a pony ride and we had such a nice experience watching. The attendant was a 15 y.o. who was great with little kids (Adam?) and taught her what to do that the pony liked, and what not to do. There were tons of teenagers ready for more customers, it is well... More

Attendant (cashier) when checking was a little lax and un-attentive. Staff was pretty nice. The horses seemed old and lacked energy but we went up into the deep woods and that was nice with some good elevation changes. A lot of rocks on the path and the horses were kicking them around and we wondered if they might lose their... More

Overall a nice horseback riding experience but make sure you don't need to use the facilities 'cause they were the worst port-a-pottie's we've ever seen. Pretty bad on that front. I'd probably go back and just make sure no one has to "go" before we get there. Horses were plenty and beautiful and our guide was also very friendly and... More

We enjoyed our horseback riding and would go again. We followed the trail up the mountain, saw a peek at Lake George which was beautiful.

If you're looking to ride a pony or a horse....great for 1st timers! This stable is very close to Lake George Village and we've been here twice now. You can either take the 1hr trail ride or for those really looking for an introduction, =you or your child can ride on a pony or horse lead by a staff member... More

The stables were nice and the staff seemed kind. We've done rides in a bunch of times - and love it, However, there were a number of outstanding issues at this location. The guide. Usually a guide will provide information about the area/history as you go... or you know, talk. He might have spoken 10 times the entire hour, and... More
