My two daughters (ages 8 and 15) and I enjoyed a trail ride over the holidays. The Lawton staff was very accommodating, especially with the 8 year old who was a little nervous.

This place is great for kids of all ages. Ride your bikes there or drive, but first stop by a grocery store and buy some long carrots. They sell food at the stables to feed the little animals, but if you want to feed the gorgeous Clydesdale and smaller horses you need to BYOC. So much fun to see our... More

They were very good about helping out inexperienced riders. They made all of us feel welcome and a part of the experience. My sons and I had a wonderful time and will be returning whenever we are back on the island.

Lawton Stables offers a FREE petting zoo with lots of animals! We spent about a half hour playing with the wild deer that lives there- she was so sweet. This is a fun place to visit if you have a little bit of free time one day.

The pony rides are $10 and you get two "trips" around the outside perimeter of the petting zoo which is about 5-6 minutes. You can use your child's bicycle helmet if you wish. We only had to wait for 2 children before our ride so about a ten minute wait. They have lots of animals in the petting zoo including... More

Great day trip option on HHI. Beautiful grounds. Great for kids. Pony rides for $10 for 7 and under and one hour escorted horse trail ride for 8 and over for $60. Petting zoo also onsite for free with ability to feed animals for $0.50 (bring your own container if possible ) definitely recommend! Need to pay $6 per car... More

We visited the petting zoo and had a great time with the many animals. Callie, the deer, followed us all around. My grandaughter had her first pony ride which she loved. Would go back anytime we are in HHI.

We were looking for something to do with a group of 15 cousins from 6 months to 12 years. This worked for all of us. We paid $6 per car to enter Sea Pines, but the stables themselves were free. They had a very nice petting zoo with a cute, friendly deer being the favorite. We brought apples and carrots... More

If you love animals this is a great place to stop! The petting zoo area is free. They have pigs, deer, goats, chickens, alpacas, horses and donkeys. We loved it! You can pay for pony and horse rides but we just wanted to pet them. Got to pet multiple horses and animals and didn't cost us a dime. The kids... More

Easy, quiet ride through the preserve but not a very exciting ride, even for beginners. Haven't been on a horse in years so even though an hour seems short it was enough.
