History comes to life at Confederate Trails. We now offer featured rides...

History comes to life at Confederate Trails. We now offer featured rides with living historians in period dress who will tell you what life was like during the time of the Civil War. For those who love in-depth history, the Licensed Battlefield Guide is the only way to go. The battlefield story unfolds as you ride right where the soldiers were - experiencing the power of this important time in our nation's history from the center of the battlefield itself. Horse lovers and historians alike will enjoy this ride. Our horses have all been awarded healthy horse certification by a premier Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. The horses are very friendly and mild mannered. We look forward to riding with you.

There was a little extra guidance available for me and despite my inexperience I soon felt very comfortable. The horses are beautiful... More

We went with a group of friends the people getting the horses ready we're extremely nice but the ride was a little boring I didn't think we would be back tracking the trail we just went on. I wouldn't preferred to make a loop around the battle field to see more. Also there wasn't much time for pictures which was... More

The guide was great and having the audio system made the day. We did not have to stop and gather around a guide to get information. The talked as we rode and the audio system allowed us a better perspective.

The horseback ride through Gettysburg Battle Field was spectacular and humbling. Our guide was well versed on the history of the battle and answered all of our questions well! I definitely recommend the horseback tour!

In September 2016 I took my grandson to Gettysburg. In addition to the battlefield tour, I wanted to do something else. When I saw the walking tour through Gettysburg, I thought that would be a different perspective on the fighting. Eric, our tour guide, was dressed in period clothing, very informative, and very knowledgeable young man. The tour is well... More

On the day of our scheduled ride we got lost trying to find where they were starting. Confederate Trails we kind enough to re-schedule us for the next day. The ride was very enjoying and the guides were a lot of fun.

Carriage ride itself was very nice and carriage ride owners/drivers were great. It was disappointing there was no Historical Tour Guide on the ride, just an audio recording which was a bit hard to follow. The battlefield and horses themselves were beautiful.
