While visiting the Adirondacks and Lake Placid be sure to include horseback riding for one of your most memorable of your vacation activities. Family run, we offer the gentlest horses in the area and unlike most stables we keep them through retirement. We also run a Horse Rescue, and most of our horses came from auctions and other, unfortunate circumstances. Rides are approximately 45-50 minutes with an additional instructional lesson prior to the ride to help you familiarize yourself with how the horses have been trained and answer any questions you may have. Longer rides available for year 2012. SEI certified helmets provided. Children and Family friendly. We are an easy drive from Saranac Lake, Keene, Wilmington, Plattsburgh, and Essex areas. Walking distance from Main Street in Lake Placid.

This is something you have to do if your in the area. Instructions are very clear. Horses are nice. And the owner is very knowledgeable. You ride to the top of a mountain where there is a clearing with a spectacular view. I would defiantly...More

I second Brianne's review that they're terrible about rescheduling/cancelling and then refuse to give your money back even after calling them and emailing them multiple times. We reserved online well in advance and then got a call the day before about how our timeslot had...More

Dear reviewer, It is unfortunate that a customer will compromise their ethics as to suggest incompetence, fraud, and to involve a number of other insulting adjectives to justify their distorted experience. It is also unfortunate that many service providers have to be exposed to such...More
