We try to go riding every year while we're in Hilton Head. Lawton Stables is a wonderful place. Their horses are well cared for and very gentle. They have horses of all sizes to accommodate persons of all ages and most sizes (they have a 250 pound weight limit, and children must be 8 years or older for the trail... More

Being the horse enthusiast that I am I was very happy when I found out Hilton Head had a stable you could ride at, it's one of my favorite things to do when on vacation and it is available. The staff are so kind and friendly not to mention helpful. If this place could get a 10 star rating it... More

This was our families first time going to the stables. The children had an awesome time! We love that you do not have to really pay much just to stop by and say hey. That makes me want to spend money to be honest! The pony rides for the little ones are only ten dollars so you cannot go wrong.... More

This is great fun and it's free. You let yourself in and out - just lock the gate. There's now a baby deer, goats, cows, alpacas, chickens, a pig, and horses. You can have birthday parties there. It's very peaceful and pretty on property.

We were spending the day in Sea Pines and stopped here in the morning. We did not ride but enjoyed seeing the horses and petting zoo. Harlan the Clydesdale greeted us and Callie the deer could not have been friendlier. Goats, pigs, cows rounded out the group. Cute gift shop with something for everyone.

A very nice horseback ride in Sea Pines. The staff was courteous, and their love for animals was quite apparent. We've been to Lawton Stables every time we've been in Hilton Head, and it never disappoints!

Great activity if your looking for something besides the beach. My 12 year old son and I were first time riders and a little nervous at first. However, the horses are very gentle and the pace was very slow, which was great for newbies like us. The tour guides do a good job matching up the horses to the individual.... More

This is a great place to take the kids for some time away from the beach. They offer horseback riding, pony rides and there is a small petting zoo. The weight limit for pony rides is 55lbs. and if it's really hot, heat index over 110 the day we visited, they do not offer horseback rides. You can buy food... More

We go here every year to ride in Hilton Head when we visit. The facilities are clean and they have lots of animals to look at before you ride. It's a fun place to visit. Love the old Clydesdale that is there to greet everyone! The horses are great on trails and keep up at a good pace. Bandit is... More

We take a guided trail ride every year and we're never disappointed! The ladies who were our guides were great and the horses are gentle (even the ones that like to eat on the trail!) It is so peaceful riding through the Sea Pines Preserve. If your children are too young for the ride, put them on the ponies. The... More
