The hour long, guided trail ride is alot of fun for inexperienced riders. They keep things at a slow walk the entire time. As safe as can be. My 9 year old enjoyed the surprise. You will eat alot of dust but you will also make alot of memories.

My husband, 10 year old son, and I did the one hour horseback riding tour. My son had never ridden a horse before and I had not been on one in probably twenty years. We had a really nice time. The people working there were friendly, entertaining and knowledgable. The horses were well behaved and the trail through the woods... More

We had a great ride for our first trip to the stables. Saw alligators and had beautiful shady ride. Go in the morning at 9am. Petting zoo was fun and horses were around to pet at the fences. Guides were great and took good care of us on our ride. Well organized and safe!

We visited with kids age 2, 3, and 5. All 3 of them did a pony ride and loved it, there is a small fee for this. Then we went to the petting zoo area which is completely free to everyone. They had lots of animals that the kids could look at and feed and pet. We all had a... More

Another attraction we visited as a family. Two were never even on a horse before and the staff was very helpful. I enjoyed listening to our guide explain the different things we passed; especially the gator! I highly recommend this as a family activity.

I would say this is a must do on the island. I loved it as did my kids. Beautiful horses and a great trail ride experience. Pony rides for little ones.

Three of our grandchildren and their dads did the trail ride and everyone loved it. The little ones did pony rides and enjoyed that too, but the best part for the little ones was feeding the horses. Bring your own apples and carrots and when you get to the fences the horses come right up to you and eat out... More

My daughter and I went on the 1 hr horse trail ride and we absolutely loved it. The trails were well shaded and the scenery was beautiful. The horses were all well mannered and well taken care of. We will definitely be going back every summer when in Hilton Head!

We signed up for an 11:00 am trail ride. I was impressed with the man who assigned the horses to the riders. We unfortunately were in a group that included very obnoxious people who were standing around the rink giving him a hard time well before ride started, but he knew how to manage them. The ride itself was beautiful... More

Loved our short visit to Lawton Stables! The staff was extremely friendly, the pony ride completely worth the $10 and the other animals at the farm entertaining for my 5 year old. Strongly recommend during your stay on the island.
